Pedro Pascal Says Trans Sister Is 'One of the Most Powerful People' He Knows

Pedro Pascal and his sister Lux

The actor at the top of every popularity list says he’s fiercely protective of her.


In a recent interview, Pedro Pascal, the actor currently at the top of his game, opened up about his younger sister, Lux, who is transgender. In a new interview, he praised her.

While speaking with Esquire, the 48-year-old actor discussed his admiration and respect for Lux, 30.

The actor spent most of his twenties and thirties struggling to make ends meet as most actors do, but Pascal has suddenly been propelled to an incredible level of fame in a short period. He’s the current ‘it’ daddy, some say.

Pascal had roles on HBO’s Game of Thrones and Netflix’s Narcos. However, now he's the star of a couple of highly-acclaimed, audience-loved series that have taken his stardom to new heights. As Joel in HBO’s runaway hit The Last of Us, he captivated viewers as an antihero survivor in a post-apocalyptic America.The Mandalorian’s third season saw him reprise his role as the title character who is navigating a post-Empire galaxy far, far away.

He's also become widely known as an LGBTQ+ ally. That's, in part, due to his relationship with his sister.

“[Lux] is and has always been one of the most powerful people and personalities I’ve ever known,” he told Esquire. "My protective side is lethal, but I need her more than she needs me.”

Originally from Chile, the Pascal family emigrated to the U.S. when he was nine months old. Besides his older sister, Javiera, he has a younger brother, Nicolás, and Lux, who is seventeen years his junior.

The magazine reports that Pascal sees Lux and Nicolás often between filming since they both returned to Chile when she was a baby.

Lux first shared her identity with the world at the beginning of 2021. Pedro shared a picture of a Chilean magazine cover with a caption about his sister stating, “Mi hermana, mi corazón, nuestra Lux,” or “my sister, my heart, our Lux.”

Recently, Pascal posted several Pride flags on his Instagram page with nearly 8 million followers.

“The answer my friend is blowin’ in the wind. #LGBTQI,” he wrote.
