Pedro Pascal

If you say you don’t love Pedro Pascal, you’re a liar, a Lannister, or Pablo Escobar. Pascal is charming but also has a bit of a dangerous feel. His characters make you believe that you honestly don’t know what they’re going to do next or what they’re really capable of.

That kind of mystery and intensity is something Star Trek hasn’t seen in a captain since Benjamin Sisko. Unlike Sisko, Pedro Pascal also has the William Ryker “I’ll steal your girl and you’ll thank me afterwards” vibe to him. The ladies of the Orion Syndicate wouldn’t know what hit them if they had to deal with Pedro Pascal.
