- Rumors Lena Headey(Dating-2014)
Game of Thrones fandom loved the character of Oberyn Martell portrayed by Pedro Pascal. Although his GOT character died in season four of the HBO series, the actor maintained relevancy through Narcos as the role of Javier Pena.
Apart from his professional life, this fan favorite actor has been linked with Lena Headey time and again. Both of them have been close friends since the set of Game of Thrones.
So what’s the real story? Let's dissect it up!
Girlfriend Lena Headey; Soon Wife-To-Be?
The story of Pedro and his rumored girlfriend is a typical trope favorite among Hollywood stars; an on-screen romance manifesting into real life.
Lena Headey and Pedro of the hit HBO series Game of Thrones, sparked dating rumors in 2014 when they were spotted spending some quality time at The Grove in Hollywood.

The couple, who swapped their Cersei Lannister and Oberyn Martell characters for jeans, seemed very much comfortable with one another. The Narcos actor got pictured with his arm around the giggling Lena, his alleged girlfriend, during their shopping outing.
Lena fueled speculation in April of 2014 with an Instagram photo of the two and captioned, "Sunshine love."

Even though Pascal's character is no longer on Game of Thrones, it's unknown if the pair were hanging out as close pals or something romantic is going on between them. One thing is pretty sure; it has fueled dating rumors.
7 Years After Divorce, Lena Headey Is Married Again
To those wondering why Pedro and his rumored girlfriend Lena haven't gotten together already, it's because the latter is somebody else's wife.
Lena is married to her childhood sweetheart Dan Cadan, having tied the knot in 2018. Along with their seven-year-old daughter Teddy, the smitten duo resides in the United Kingdom.
Like Lena, her husband also works in the film industry. Dan has directorial credits in numerous movies including Morven Caller and Walk Like A Panther. She was previously married to celebrity hairdresser Peter Loughran.
The British actress finalized the divorce from ex-husband Peter in 2013 after separating in 2011. They share a son, Wylie.
Lena married musician Peter Loughran in May of 2007. The former admitted in an interview in April of 2015 to More Magazine that divorce with the latter was indeed terrible. She said:
"It's tough. There's a lot of hurt and sadness and disappointment. Grief. Massive grief. It's a mourning process, and yet nobody's died."
Moreover, she added:
"I haven't had a spell in a long time. I think some people's brains are just wired that way if you're a thinker. People who never get anxious always amaze me. The world could be breaking up and they're saying, 'Everything's fine!' Getting older and having kids, you learn how to become less serious about it all."
As for Pedro's relationship status, he's as single as they make. His last relationship was four years ago. In his September 2017 interview with Mr. Porter, he blamed his dedication to his craft for his present state of singlehood.
The Narcos actor - who is rumored to play the lead in yet-to-be-confirmed Star Wars series titled The Mandalorian - confessed,
“If I was to stop and think about dating, I don’t know how that could be managed with the schedule I’ve had. I suppose that sounds a bit arrogant. But if I want to get involved in something, I want to pay attention to it, and I want to nurture it."
According to Pedro, it takes a certain amount of emotional and physical energy to make your better half happy -- too big of an ask for someone like him who doesn't have a minute to spare.
Pedro Pascal: Online Gay Activist
Believe it or not, there's even a community on Reddit who claimed that they were gay for his Game of Thrones character. Upon learning about the group, Pedro expressed excitement.
Interestingly enough, Pedro - before his breakout role in CBS drama The Good Wife - portrayed a series of masculine gay men and ethnic characters in his struggle years on the stages of New York.
The Triple Frontier actor - is all set play Lord Maxwell in Wonder Women 1984 - has time and again proved that he's one of the biggest allies to the LGBT community. He's also a voice to be reckoned with when it comes to activism.

In 28th of September 2018, he had tweeted sympathizing with the causes of gay rights and women rights. Pedro wrote:
"I’m sorry we’re women, that we’re gay, that our skin is brown. These absolute pieces of cowardly shits, these hypocritical, lying, soulless flesh bags. Let them have it, let them have all they can set their empty eyes on. We keep our souls and each other."
And again on 2nd June 2018, Pedro sent out a tweet urging everybody to be proud of one's identity. He tweeted:-
"#HappyPrideMonth to the WORLD! #BeProudEverday!!!"
Isn't good seeing a celebrity using his/her reach to educate people on the burning issues?

Nearly four years after his character's death, Pedro ran into The Mountain (portrayed by Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson) - his murderer on Games of Thrones - at the penultimate season premiere held in New York City in April 2019.
The former co-stars comically treated the photographers in the attendance with a rematch. Talking about his gruesome demise on the series' fourth season, Pedro quipped:-
"I win with the grossest death, don't I? It's the most disgusting, anyway."
Away from his HBO appearance, the Equalizer 2 actor is all set to star as the titular character in video streaming service Disney Plus' newest offering, The Mandalorian.
Before heading to the Star Wars Celebration Chicago, in April 2019, Pedro shared the highly-anticipated series' awesome logo via Twitter.
