Pedro Pascal is currently starring as two of television’s most prominent father figures, but The Mandalorian star has a confession to make: he feels uncomfortable using his Mando daddy voice when asked to in public.

“People come up to me and ask me to do the voice [from The Mandalorian] for their kids,” he shared on The Graham Norton Show (via HuffPo UK). “But I think it sounds inappropriate because it is a breathy, low-register ‘bedroom’ voice.” Valid, cause the voice is most definitely how any adult would want to be talked to, but lines like “I can bring you in hot or I can bring you in cold” sorta don’t work for the littles—Grogu aside, but he’s not a real kid.

Pascal expressed what it’s like to speak in his bedroom voice outside of the helmet: “It is so creepy and doesn’t work in real life.” So maybe let’s not put him on the spot to do that and just enjoy his daddy status, friends.


If getting to see Pascal weekly on HBO’s The Last of Us isn’t enough and you’ve been missing that sexy, helmet-encased voice, fret not: The Mandalorian is set to return to Disney+ for its third season on March 1.
