We don’t know if Pedro Pascal’s coffee order should be concerning or if it’s just what the actor needs to get through his busy days. A TikTok video went viral for catching a glimpse of The Last of Us star’s Starbucks order. The caption read: “Daddy needs his coffee every morning to carry the entire world and a fandom over his shoulders.”
The label featured an alarming amount of espresso. In the video, which has over 7 million views, Pascal, 47, ordered an iced quad espresso in a venti cup with extra ice and six shots of espresso. For reference, one shot of espresso contains about 63 mg of caffeine. That means Pedro could be drinking up to 400 mg of caffeine in just one Starbucks order.
Though he was also holding a bottle of water under one arm, fans were in shock and awe over the actor’s order. One fan exclaimed, “our mans is CAFFEINATED.” While another hilariously said, “so if I survive drinking this do I become Pedro Pascal?” Another concerned fan asked, “IS HE OKAY????” While another said, “That is a violent amount of coffee.”
Following the viral video, the Mandalorian actor had a little fun with a paparazzi who asked him how many shots of coffee he had in his cup. While leaving the gym, Pascal joked that he has upped the ante on his order to “12” shots of espresso.
The actor has been really busy lately, so he may need all the caffeine he can get. In addition to The Last of Us, which recently aired its season one finale, Pedro also appears in Disney+’s newly dropped The Mandalorian season three. Amid promoting both of his TV shows, he hosted Saturday Night Live just last month and most recently presented at the 2023 Oscars this past Sunday (March 12).
