“There was a huge amount of experimentation, being in the suit for a long time and quite frankly my body wasn’t up to the task in the four months.”Pascal shared.
“But I was on it. I was in it a significant amount, an elastic amount. But now we’ve figured it out, which is great and surprisingly, it gave me the chance to go and do something else.”
He added: “I think there are things you need to put aside in terms of what an OCD level of attention to detail can be. But even if you want your part of it to fit perfectly into the collage, you really have to give it all up.”
Moving away from the physical side of his Mandalorian performance allowed Pascal to star in the acclaimed post-apocalyptic drama of HBO The Last Of Uswhich now has a second season.
