How tall is Pedro Pascal?
According to his IMDb profile and other sources, Pascal’s height is 1.8 meters, or 5 feet 10.5 inches.
His height is average for a man, but it is slightly above average for an actor.
This has given him an advantage in some roles, such as his portrayal of Oberyn Martell in Game of Thrones.
Martell is a skilled fighter and acrobat, and Pascal’s height and athleticism helped him to bring the character to life.
However, Pascal’s height has also been a disadvantage in some cases.
For example, he was originally cast as the lead role in the film Kingsman: The Secret Service.
However, he was dropped from the film because he was too tall for the role; the producers were concerned that he would look too imposing and unrealistic as a spy.
