Pedro Pascal, star of “The Last of Us,” responded to a throwback photo posted by Sarah Michelle Gellar from their time together on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” During the Los Angeles premiere of “The Mandalorian” season 3 on Tuesday, the 47-year-old actor expressed his appreciation for Gellar’s Instagram post.
Pascal appeared in only one episode of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” as Eddie, a fellow freshman, in season 4 of the supernatural series. Despite the brief appearance, he recalled fond memories of working with Gellar, calling her a kind and talented scene partner.
Upon learning of Gellar’s post, Pascal shared his excitement and expressed his admiration for his former co-star. The interviewer then showed Pascal a collection of photos of his younger self from the episode, which he held up to the camera, giving fans a glimpse of his early acting career.
Pascal, who is currently playing Joel in the HBO series “The Last of Us,” has gained a massive following for his impressive performance in the show. The series is an adaptation of the popular PlayStation video game, and its first season premiered on January 15, 2023, with a total of nine episodes.
Although Pascal has come a long way since his days on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” he clearly cherishes his time on the series and his relationship with Gellar. Fans can look forward to seeing more of Pascal’s work in “The Last of Us” and other upcoming projects.
