Pedro Pascal needed seven stitches in his face after sustaining an injury on the set of The Mandalorian — the only time he wouldn’t need to wear his helmet.
The actor said the incident was “the most embarrassing thing in the world” during an interview on the latest episode of Disney+ documentary Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian.
He revealed he sustained the injury to his nose by walking into a piece of plywood after leaving the make-up trailer.
“I have been in the most dangerous circumstances [on other jobs],” Pascal said.

“To sell all of my previous employers out, I will tell you there were so many things that should not have been happening — for months at a time.”
Despite this, the 45-year-old said he had “never gone to a hospital from work” until he was left covered in blood following this mundane accident.
He added: “I stepped out of the make-up trailer, looking at my sides, and walked into a piece of plywood.”
Co-star Gina Carano pointed out it was “so cool” that Pascal came back from getting stitches and went straight back to work.
Pascal said: “Oh, please! You guys moved mountains and I couldn’t get from the make-up trailer to a rehearsal.”
Pascal’s character Din Djarin adheres to the Mandalorian code of conduct which means he never removes his helmet in front of other people. His face is only shown for one very brief scene, which happened to be the day he cut his face open.
All eight episode of The Mandalorian are now streaming on Disney+ in the UK, as well as three episodes of the behind-the-scenes series.
Meanwhile, the second season of The Mandalorian is still planning to meet its October 2020 airdate, despite the coronavirus pandemic.
