The widely loved actor from the Game of Thrones world has made a striking mark on Hollywood. However, with the stories followed regarding his career, he has also been subjected to claims of him being gay.
His character play of Oberyn Martell made fans of the show fall in love with him, and he soon became a household name. The fame also made him subjected to sharing his relationship with his co-star Leana Heady amongst the public. However, the relationship did not go as the fans would have wished.
Is Pedro Pascal Gay?
As an actor’s life goes, they have to play the character that they have put in convincingly. And same happened in the case of this 46-year-old gentleman. His character on the show “Game Of Thrones” had a scene where he can be seen having an intimate moment with a man. However, having a wife that he loved, this scene led the sexuality of the character to be noted as bisexual.
This led to fans speculating he might be into men in his real life as well. But to his fans wondering, he is not gay. It’s nothing but a natural-born actor just playing his part well and convincingly.
His fans even went on to say that they were “Gay For Oberyn.” When asked about his feeling regarding this, noble prince Martell replied,
It's so wonderful. I think it's all a spectrum, right? Straight men can have — do have — crushes on other men. It doesn't make them gay, and it doesn't make them bi.
His statement directly goes on to show him stating himself as a “Straight man.”
His Dating Life And Relationships
Pascal has been rumored to have been dating co-star “Lena Heady,” But the two have never come forward and accepted any of the claims, neither denied.
The pictures that these two shared on their social media can’t keep us from questioning their tangent with each other.

The two have never officially discussed their relationship but posted warm pictures together that made fans fall in love with their chemistry more. They used to attain occasions together and were papped together, being super close with each other.
The hopes of fans were shortly crushed after Lena got married to her now-husband, Dan Cadan. Well, looking back, we can guess that it was nothing but a good friendship.
The Wonder Woman 1984 actor also dated Maria Dizzia for a short period. The actor also stirred a significant amount of attention when hanging out with The Mentalist co-star Robin Tunney. He was seen with Tunney on multiple occasions.
Pascal has remained lowkey with his personal dating life. Having not engaged or married, this 46-year-old is in close watch of his fans and media as to who he is with.
An Astonishing Career and Net Worth
The start of his success story started in the ’90s. Despite having staggering acting talent, his art was limited to small screens only. He was seen on TV shows such as “The Good Wife,” “The Mentalist,” and “Law And Order.”
He got his first big break and worldwide recognition through “Game of Thrones.” His character as Prince Oberyn Martell earned himself a huge fan following and a loyal fan base.
After his appearance on the series, this aspiring actor never looked back. He went on to work on another popular series, “Narcos” and “The Mandalorian.”
His recent appearance was in the second DC Wonder Woman movie, namely; Wonder Woman 1984. In addition, he has his new action movie coming out on 2022 named “The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent.”
With all these ventures up his sleeve, he has been able to amass a net worth of about 10 million dollars. He also amassed most of his assets and net worth from Game of Thrones, where he was paid six figures salary per episode.
