1. Early Life

Pedro Balmaceda, better known as Pedro Pascal, was born on April 2, 1975, in Santiago, Chile. He is the eldest child of Verónica Pascal Ureta, a child psychologist, and José Pedro Balmaceda Riera, a fertility doctor, both of whom are immigrants. His parents were vocal opponents of Augusto Pinochet's dictatorial regime, and when Pedro was still young, the family was compelled to leave Chile, eventually resettling in the United States. After a period in Texas, where Pedro excelled as a competitive swimmer, the family relocated to southern California. It was there that Pedro's interest shifted towards acting, leading him to enroll at the Orange County School of the Arts in Santa Ana.
