Pedro Pascal's Mandalorian Suit Is Way Clumsier To Wear In Real-Life Than On TV

There are few things everyone in this world agrees on, but we'd hope one of those things would be that Din Djarin's (Pedro Pascal) armor in "The Mandalorian" looks cool as heck. Despite showing a soft side for his little green buddy, Grogu, the character is typically stoic and intimidating — in no small part thanks to his awesome armor and especially his helmet, which covers his face at nearly all times. Not getting to see Mando's face most of the time gives the character a certain distance and mystery, with our only way to see into the character's emotions being through his voice and body movements.

However, just because something looks cool on TV, doesn't mean it looks or feels as cool in real life. Recently, Pascal was interviewed about what it's like to wear the iconic Mandalorian armor on set, and he talked about what parts feel great, and what other parts don't.

It's hard to see inside the Mandalorian's helmet

In an interview with Empire, Pedro Pascal talked about "The Mandalorian" in anticipation of Season 3 soon coming to Disney+. There was a wide range of topics, but one we wanted to draw attention to was his talking about the experience of putting on the iconic Beskar armor.

"It's like putting on a head-to-toe glove with weights on it," Pascal said. "It's ironic that you can't see any facial expression because it puts you in the world so completely, and instantly makes the character feel real — but you can't see s***!"

Pascal went on to say that the crew has made improvements to the armor so that it's more comfortable, but that it still nearly blinds him whenever he puts it on. As we can see in the show, there's only a narrow slit the actor can see through, completely cutting off his peripheral vision. To make matters worse, his breath will often fog up the only part of the helmet he can look through, making his vision even more limited.

"The Mandalorian" Season 3 premieres exclusively on Disney+ on March 1.
