The Last of Us TV show star Pedro Pascal hasn’t played the games because he doesn’t want to “imitate” Joel

Pedro Pascal admits he hasn’t played the Last of Us. Partly because he doesn’t want to nurture the urge to “most” play Joel Miller, the character he portrays in the TV series adaptation.

In a new interview with GQ, Pascal was asked about his familiarity with the Last of Us game. At first he tried to play the game (thought to be the first), but realized he didn’t have the “specific skills” needed to win the game, and eventually passed the controller over to his nephew.

Pascal said he saw his nephew play for a while that day, but said he didn’t seem to have seen many games other than that. While filming the TV show version, the actor said it was because he didn’t want to get too close to the video game characters.

“I was very impressed with Joel. He discovered everything that made for a visually stunning experience. Then he felt so much like him that he thought that in some cases he was right and in others he could be wrong. So I just wanted to make a healthy street and get more hands on it [show co-writer] Craig Margin and [game director and show co-writer] Neil Druckman.”

Regarding how closely the TV series is related to the game, Pascal used only vague words to describe the adaptation in an easy to understand way. “It’s a very, very creative way of respecting what’s important and preserving the iconic for the video game experience.” “It definitely provides features you didn’t expect,” Pascal also compares it to the Disney Plus series The Mandalorian, in which he starred.

Pedro Pascal admits to not having played The Last of Us games, in part because he doesn’t want to develop an urge to “imitate” Joel Miller, the character he’s portraying in the TV show adaptation.
In a new interview with GQ, Pascal was asked about his familiarity with The Last of Us games. Initially, he said he tried to play the game (presumably the first one) but ultimately handed the controller over to his nephew after finding he didn’t have “the specific kind of skill” needed to beat it. 
Pascal said he then watched his nephew play for a while that same day, but other than that it sounds like he hasn’t seen much of the games either. The actor said that’s because he doesn’t want to get to close to the video game character while filming as the TV show version.
“I found Joel so impressive — I found the whole of it such a visually impressive experience. And then I got worried that I would want to imitate too much, which I think could be right in some circumstances, and then a mistake in others. So I just wanted to create a healthy distance, and for that to be more in the hands of [show co-writer] Craig Mazin and [game director and show co-writer] Neil Druckmann.”
In terms of how closely the TV series sticks to the games, Pascal understandably had only vague words to describe the adaptation, describing the show as “a very, very creative way of honoring what’s important and also preserving what is iconic to the experience of the video game,” adding that it includes “things that you wouldn’t necessarily expect.” Pascal also compares it to the Disney Plus series The Mandalorian, which he also stars in.
