So, who is Nicolás? Keep reading to find out.
Meet Nicolás Balmaceda Pascal, Pedro Pascal Brother
Nicolás Balmaceda Pascal is Pedro Pascal’s younger brother who was always close to him. But though he’s blood-related to a star, Nicolás hates spotlights on him. However, this didn’t stop Pedro from featuring him on his socials and taking him to the premieres.
The last we saw them together was at the premiere of TripleFrontier in March 2019.
Also, as per Pedro, his brother might be younger but he worried the most about their family.
But Pedro’s not the only sibling Nicolás was close to. He also equally loves his sister Lux Pascal who made it to the cover of the Spanish “Ya” magazine in Feb 2021. In case you didn’t know, Lux is a trans female. She first came out to Pedro through FaceTime. Lux recalled the moment when Pedro asked him how she felt because she was “a little worried.” Then, as soon as she replied that she was “happy”, Pedro congratulated her without hesitation. Lux recalled his words, “Perfect, this is incredible.”
Furthermore, Lux mentioned that Pascal played an important part in her life. He “served as a guide” for her and also he was one of the first people to gift her “the tools” to shape her identity.
Today, Lux is also in the starlight for being an activist and for her time as an actress. She’s on a few movies and TV shows like The Pack (2020), The Prince (2019), This Is Cristina (2019), Invisible Heroes (2019), Narcos (2017), and Los 80 (2014).
Lux believed that the world needed activists who are “good, smart, informed, and who can be strong voices against transphobia, homophobia, and racism.”
Also, Pedro has another sister named Javiera Balmaceda Pascal @tylenolprincess who is the oldest of all siblings. Pedro and Javiera were born in Santiago, Chile. As of 2023, she was working as Head of Local Originals for LatAm + CA/AU at Prime Video & Amazon Studios. But previously, she served in the role of Head of Local Originals, Spanish Speaking Latin America, Head of Originals, AR/CO/CL, and Sr. Development Executive. Furthermore, she also worked at Amazon as Content Acquisitions Latin America and served as Director of Programming at HBO Latin America.
