Do you have any words to live by?
Do you realize these are the hardest questions in the world? The first thing that comes to mind is “Don’t be a dick”.

And what will your dying words be?
“I hope I wasn’t a dick”.

Pedro Pascal by Randall Mesdon for At Large Magazine, November 2015

The usual story is that the hard working immigrant family says, “You’re going to be a doctor or a lawyer. Or start a business.” My parents were just like, “Whatever gets you out of the house”. At one point I became a good swimmer and my dad was suddenly excited that I’d be an Olympian. They were very untypical. As soon as I got to the age when I could take theatre classes, my parents were happy because it occupied so much of my time.
