Pedro Pascal Attempted to Attend an Art Exhibition Focused on His Own Persona — but He Was Unable to Enter
Pedro Pascal arrived at the art exhibition that was dedicated to him, only to discover that the gallery was closed on the day he had planned to visit.
Heidi Gentle Burrell, an artist, is currently exhibiting her collection titled "ADHD Hyper Fixation And Why It Looks Like I Love Pedro Pascal" at Rhodes Gallery in Margate, England. The collection comprises various paintings and sketches that are inspired by Pedro Pascal, the renowned actor from The Last of Us. Visitors can visit the gallery in Margate to view these artworks.
According to a recent photo shared on Instagram by Talk Art, an Instagram account managed by actor Russell Tovey and gallerist Robert Diament, it was revealed that Pedro Pascal attempted to visit an exhibition dedicated to himself, but he was unable to gain entry.
Unfortunately, the gallery was closed on Sundays, so Pascal and his friends who share a passion for art decided to take a selfie outside the building instead. Jessica Rhodes Robb, one of the co-owners of the gallery, expressed her embarrassment to the BBC, stating that she felt mortified that Pascal had to resort to looking through the window to see the artwork. She also mentioned that they would be sending him a gift as an apology.
"Heidi expressed her excitement and pride for the incredible success of her show. She mentioned that the exhibition, which will run until September 1, has received the recognition it truly deserves. She also expressed deep regret and embarrassment that Pedro and his companion were unable to attend. As a result, the gallery is reconsidering its Sunday opening policy. Additionally, as a gesture of apology, they will be sending Pedro a special gift from the exhibition."
Pascal, who has gained fame for his roles in popular TV shows like The Mandalorian and The Last of Us, usually doesn't have time to attend events that are solely focused on him. Normally, he would be occupied with reading scripts or filming scenes for big productions. However, it seems that he currently has some spare time due to the Hollywood strikes.
On July 14, the Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) made the decision to stand in solidarity with the Writers Guild of America (WGA) by participating in the picket lines. This resulted in actors and writers from the film and TV industry ceasing work on the majority of productions. Unfortunately, there is currently no resolution in sight.
