A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, actor Pedro Pascal (a.k.a. "The Mandalorian") used to call San Antonio home.

In a Variety interview, it was revealed the Star Wars actor and his family escaped Chile during the Pinochet years. They made their way to Venezuela, received asylum, and eventually found a home in San Antonio.

After six months, they finally managed to climb the walls of the Venezuelan embassy during a shift change and claim asylum; from there, the family relocated, first to Denmark, then to San Antonio, where Pascal’s father got a job as a physician.

This would place Pascal and his family living in San Antonio around the late 1980s and early 1990s.

This means his childhood in San Antonio was filled by what everyone else does attending San Antonio Spurs games at the Alamodome watching David Robinson and crew during that time.

Pascal admits to loving the San Antonio life and as long as his homework was done, his father took him to watch the Silver and Black in action.

Besides, he loved his life in San Antonio. His father took him and his sister to Spurs basketball games during the week if their homework was done.

Eventually, Pascal and his family would leave San Antonio for California but for a few years, "The Mandalorian" was cheering on the Spurs to victory.

This is the way!
