In addition to Pascal's general appeal to fans, the actor's reputation as the daddy is a result of the various roles he has recently taken on. His looks in 'The Mandalorian' and 'The Last of Us' have continued to woo fans. In the former, the actor plays the titular Mandalorian, who looks for and protects young Grogu.
