Pedro Pascal, best known for his portrayal of Oberyn Martell in the hit HBO fantasy series Game of Thrones, has long been tight-lipped about his personal life.
Over the years since coming to the limelight, the Chilean-American actor’s romantic side has remained under the shadow for most of the part except for a few rumors, including with Maria Dizzia, Sarah Paulson, and Lena Headey.
Around 2014, Pascal was rumored for being in a relationship with his then Game of Thrones castmate, Lena Headey. The speculations circulated after the two were often seen spending time together. But they never confirmed the rumors.

The buzz around their alleged relationship got more hyped when Headey announced that she was pregnant with her second child in 2015 — with many adding that Pascal was the father.
But very soon, the actress disclosed that her Dan Cadan, an English actor, was the father of her daughter, with whom she even tied the knots in 2018.
Following that, people also strongly started to speculate if the actor embraced homosexuality, fuming rumors of him being gay — since he potrayed a few homosexual characters on-screen, and showed strong support for the LGBTQ+ community through social media.
As a struggling actor during his mid-twenties, Pascal had little or no choice but to portray what came to him from obscure roles to that of masculine gay men.
Speaking in support of the LGBTQ+ community, the actor also took to Twitter on September 28, 2018, and bashed those who thought themselves superior to the women, gay, and person of color.
“I’m sorry we’re women, that we’re gay, that our skin is brown,” Pascal wrote. He also added, “These absolute pieces of cowardly shits, these hypocritical, lying, soulless flesh bags. Let them have it, let them have all they can set their empty eyes on. We keep our souls and each other.”

Likewise, the We Can Be Heros star posted, “#HappyPrideMonth to the WORLD...#BeProudEverday,” on the occasion of Pride Month, on June 2, 2018.
All that being said, the Narcos star is yet to answer his relationship rumors — and there is an absence of a wife or any girlfriend in his life, which is not helping to shut the questions on his sexuality, and curiosity to know his relationship status.

Just hoping that it is never too late to find out what’s under the wraps.
Pascal’s Story Of Asylum From Ages Ago
The Chile native was born on April 2, 1975, as José Pedro Balmaceda Pascal, to parents who opposed the US-backed military dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet — during the time he was born.
He never grew up in his birthplace as his parents were granted political asylum in Denmark after the opposition won. He grew up in Orange Country, California, for the most part, and later moved to San Antonio, Texas, before finally settling down in New York, where he has been living for over 20 years.
New York has given him pretty much of everything he has — a home away from home and the career.
Moreover, Pascal has a sister named Lux Pascal, who was born as a boy named Lucas Balmaceda. But in February 2021, she came out as transgender.
