Pedro Pascal was so sweet to his sister, Lux, when she came out as a trans woman


This is just a heartwarming story that confirms my love of Pedro Pascal (before he was in Wonder Woman, but that wasn’t his fault). Pedro, 45, has always been a decent person and we’ve barely covered him for that reason. You don’t hear a bad word about the guy, he’s not a shameless self promoter, he doesn’t say obnoxious things or date instamodels (not that there’s anything wrong with that) and for that reason we don’t talk about him much. Pedro’s sister, Lux, 28, is a transgender woman and is featured on the cover of a Spanish language magazine called Ya. Lux told Ya that Pedro was so supportive and helpful to her as she transitioned. Pedro has also posted in support of Lux, calling her his corazon/heart. This is so nice!

The Mandalorian star posted a photo of Lux’s cover for the Spanish-language Ya magazine, where she opened up about her transition for the first time. In the caption, Pascal, 45, gave all his love to Lux, 28.

“Mi hermana, mi corazón, nuestra Lux,” Pascal wrote in his native Spanish, which translates to, “my sister, my heart, our Lux.”

Lux revealed in the interview that she started receiving hormone treatment in July. She’s now studying acting at the famed Juilliard School in New York City.

“My transition has been something that’s very natural for everyone in my family,” Lux said in the feature, translated from her native Spanish. “It’s almost something that they expected to happen.”

As for her famous brother, Lux said Pascal “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.”

When she came out to him as trans over FaceTime, she said he “asked me how I felt, because I remember he was a little worried.” After Lux said she was happy, the actor quickly congratulated her.

“Perfect, this is incredible,” Lux recalled Pascal saying to her.

I wish all transgender people could get this kind of support from their families. I’ve read some really heart wrenching stories on Twitter about people’s families rejecting them when they come out. For those people, I hope they can build their own families to support them, you know? That’s one of the things I like about Twitter, that trans people are supported and loved by the community there. I love hearing stories like this. It’s rare that we hear about a celebrity being so kind and encouraging behind the scenes to his family, along with so publicly supportive. I have always liked Pedro Pascal and this just confirms that.

Also how handsome is he?!

    What a lovely story! And while not the point: she looks beautiful!! (The genes in that family!!)

    It’s true isn’t it? It’s hard for many websites cover gossip on the nice stars all that often. “Pedro Pascal was kind to someone today…again” is not going to generate much debate in the comments. 😁 A nice palate-cleanser of a story though, so thanks!

      Gorgeous. I love him. He was amazing in “Game Of Thrones” and “Narcos.”

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      I was going to say the same thing – beautiful family inside and out.

      I stan Pedro, he is such a great actor but the WW role must have been accepted on a bad day.

      • liz says:

        I think it was Michael Caine who said “the mortgage doesn’t care if it’s garbage.” There are plenty of great actors who take awful roles simply because there are bills to be paid (and that money allows them to also do the work they love). That is entirely possible with PP and Wonder Woman. It’s entirely possible that he took that role so he could also be able to do things like Shakespeare in the Park – he played Don John in Much Ado a few years ago (they pay their performers scale).

        And it is so wonderful to see him publicly embrace his sister. Everyone should have a supportive family.

    • Det20! says:

      Sometimes when we get to know nasty facts about celebrities, I am either not surprised or not bothered (as in ‘I have never been a fan of that particular person’s work or personality anyway’). Or both. Like in the case of Armie Hammer, who always was slightly creepy to me, plus I could not understand why there were so many efforts to make him a huge star for the better part of a decade. He was a blank to me basically, so it’s no loss.
      But then there are artists I love and I so hope they will not turn out to be utter a*holes next month. Not because of small flaws, we all make mistakes, but the real ugly stuff. Nothing much surprises me these days… after all I don’t personally know any of them, so you never know. But you hope, don’t you? For me there are a select few and at the very top of my list are Pedro Pascal and Diego Luna. I would hate it if at one point they turned out to belong to the bad ones.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      “the genes in that family”

      you ain’t kidding. and the way Pedro LOOKS in his jeans in “Narcos” is um…something else. WHEW.

      *fans self*

      but yeah, she IS gorgeous. and I love that he supports her so fully. must make working with that transphobic, TERRIBLE actress difficult. she’s so bad. I know they wanted her for her physique, but surely there’s another MMA fighter who’s NOT a bigot and can act, at least a little bit.

      • liz says:

        Lucy Lawless would have been perfect for that role. But was probably considered “too old” (she’s 52, around 15 years older than what’s-her-name) and too expensive.

      • Gorgonia says:

        Just read on an Italian gossip site Carano had been fired from The Mandalorian.

      • rainbowkitty says:

        Omg him in those jeans. … he’s a gorgeous man. His sister is stunning as well.

  2. TheOriginalMia says:

    Pedro is great. Always has been.

    I didn’t realize Lux wasn’t out. I thought people already knew about Lux after Gina Carano’s ugly comments about trans people over the fall.

    • Mia4s says:

      As I understand it Lux was out as non-binary for several years, but only now out publicly as trans. I’m not sure how long she’s been out as trans to her family though, could be a lot longer.

    • oliphant500 says:

      gina is disgusting. I can’t imagine how Pedro must feel having to work with her on the mandalorian knowing how she must feel about his sister- I wish they would fire her- she is so wooden in the role anyway she would not be missed at all. absolute POS trump supporting fool.

      on a nicer note Pedro seems to be a wonderful human and i’m supporting his every success :)

      • Jenn says:

        She was trending when I was looking at Twitter half an hour ago (“#FireGinaCarano). Something about her TikTok and… she was comparing the current “hatred” against conservatives to how Jewish people were treated during the Second World War. I literally… ugh

    • AlpineWitch says:

      She should be fired, I don’t even know who made the bad decision to hire her, she is so bad! I also saw the movie Haywire with her and her face didn’t emote anything for the whole length of the movie.

      • oliphant500 says:

        yes she seems to think a blank face or narrowing her eyes is acting- why she was cast I have no idea! come on favreau and filoni, fire her!! she’s such a scumbag and she really revels in it.

      • FF says:

        They can’t just fire her apropos of her obnoxious comments, they’d have to prove that her comments/attitude quantitatively impacts the product, the work environment, or the company’s image negatively.

        They will simply write her out organically, as serves the plot – and the characters will respond to the loss of her character as they would be expected to narratively – and that will be that. Whereas if she hadn’t been so hideous Cara Dune might’ve lived longer, who knows? But there’s little point cancelling her now when she can be written out in a way that makes new story and maybe introduces new cast members.

        There’s also the thin possibility that Carano could learn something and be a better person, though I’m not holding my breath on that.

  3. smcollins says:

    Just when I thought I couldn’t possibly love him more ❤️. I hope my son & daughter grow up to have this kind of relationship. On a superficial note Lux is stunning.

  4. Teresa says:

    She is very striking and pretty! And I’m glad Pedro is a seemingly good guy =)

  5. GreenBunny says:

    I love him so much and this just makes my crush grow. And totally superficial, but they are a gorgeous family and she looks amazing.

  6. Rapunzel says:

    This is the way.

  7. Cel2495 says:

    Lux is very pretty…I’m glad she has a supportive family

  8. Watson says:

    This news was wonderful ❤️

  9. sassafras says:

    For every Armie Hammer story that comes out, there needs to be a greater number of Pedro Pascal stories. Or other nice guy stories. Heck, I’ll even take Cat Lawyer memes. I feel like Armie Hammer is polluting the whole celeb news atmosphere right now.

  10. Lizzie Bathory says:

    Lovely story! I really appreciate how this site covers stories about trans folks in a kind & supportive way. There’s so much hate out there towards people who are just trying to live their lives.

  11. Soni says:

    Pedro is so great. My step-daughter has come out as trans and it’s hard for me to not have any real “say” in the situation. Her parents love her (she hasn’t come out to the world so she’s okay still using the term “her”) but they don’t talk about it with her unless they need to. I would handle it very differently but it’s not fully my call. Still, I try to support her the best I can.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      what a good step/bonus mom you are.

      all you need to do is make sure she knows that you’re there to support her, to talk, give advice if needed or just to listen. her simply being aware of your presence as a supportive person can make a huge difference – that will go a LONG way.

      • Soni says:

        Thank you! I hope I can be a positive person in her life and a supportive partner to her dad. He loves her more than anything but his worries about her sometimes prevent him from being more communicative with her. We’ll get there eventually :)

  12. Valerie says:

    This is lovely. I don’t know much about Pedro, except that he’s best friends with Oscar Isaac, lol. This was nice to read.

  13. K says:

    This is sweet. My brother is one of my favorite people (we have the same sense of humor) and if he came out as a trans woman, I’d love him just as much as a sister!

  14. SM says:

    Of course he is that nice. His long time friendship with Sarah Paulson is a testament to that.
    While I am not transgender, and can only speak as a woman – having a supportive older brother is a grace from God. May not have won the “great parents” lottery, but I did survive (and still do) by having my big brother by my side.

  15. Melisande says:

    Cheekbones for days! Gorgeous.

    I’m glad she has such a supportive brother. I’m happy Pedro’s career is taking off.

  16. cuchufli says:

    Chilean/American family here, we are so proud of Pablo, and happy for Lux. Even my mom in the US asks after Pablo :) It is good to have some good news about Chileans to share. Things are not easy here, we will gladly accept the smiles.

  17. tsk says:

    I think he’s not very good-looking (he’s the token hot latino for yt ppl who don’t know any other latino actor) and he’s not that good an actor, which makes me feel so bad because he seems to be such a gentleman and all around great human being lmao

    His sister is gorgeous tho!

    • Granger says:

      Have you seen Prospect? It’s from 2018. He is honestly just amazing in it and it might change your mind about his acting (if you like sci-fi, that is–if you don’t, don’t watch it!).

      And I agree he’s kind of an average looking guy in still photos, but there is something about him in movement that is incredibly sexy.
