Famous for his presence in Hollywood, Pedro Pascal has a sister who’s equally worth knowing about. Meet Lux Pascal, a talented transgender actress with a story of her own.
Who is Lux Pascal?
Born in Chile, Lux Pascal has stepped into the spotlight as a transgender actress. At 31 years old, she shares a family bond with her brother, Pedro Pascal, who is 17 years her senior. After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile, Lux took a step forward by completing her acting master’s at the prestigious Juilliard School in New York.
Her career includes various roles in Chilean TV shows and films, alongside an appearance in ‘Narcos.’
Lux’s transition journey has been an important point in her life. She received a supportive response from her family, especially from Pedro:
“My transition has been something that’s very natural for everyone in my family. It’s almost something that they expected to happen. Pedro has been an important part of this. He’s also an artist and has served as a guide for me. He was one of the first people to gift me the tools that started shaping my identity.”
Lux is now an advocate for more transgender activists to fight against societal issues like transphobia and homophobia.
Known for his roles in ‘The Mandalorian’ and ‘The Last of Us,’ Pedro also stands out as an LGBTQ+ ally, particularly in his support for Lux. He often speaks of Lux with admiration, reflecting on her powerful personality and his protective nature towards her:
“I wouldn’t want to speak on her [Lux’s] behalf, but she is and has always been one of the most powerful people and personalities I’ve ever known. My protective side is lethal, but I need her more than she needs me.”
Not long ago, Lux and Pedro Pascal made a stylish appearance at the LACMA Art + Film Gala presented by Gucci in Los Angeles, where Lux donned a red lace dress.
Who Is Pedro Pascal’s Mother, Verónica Pascal?
A child psychologist by profession, Verónica Pascal’s life was marked by events that shaped her children’s lives.
Due to their connection to Salvador Allende and ensuing political persecution during the Chilean military coup of 1973, the Pascal family sought refuge in the Venezuelan embassy before moving to Denmark and later the United States. Verónica then obtained a PhD in Child Psychology and was instrumental in nurturing Pedro’s early theatrical interests.
Tragically, Verónica took her own life when Pedro was 24 years old. This was an event that left a profound impact on him. Pedro often honors his mother’s memory in his achievements and public appearances, mentioning the lasting influence she has had on him and his family.
