'Last Of Us' Star Pedro Pascal Talks of Family Fleeing Pinochet's Chile on SNL


Last of Us” star Pedro Pascal hosted “Saturday Night Live” last night.  Near the tail end of his monologue, "Pascal, born in Chile, slipped into a quick summary of his life that became suddenly emotionally powerful as he spoke about moving to the U.S. when his parents escaped the repressive Pinochet regime with his sister and him when he was just nine months old."

“They were so brave, and without them I wouldn’t be here in this wonderful country,” he said, his voice breaking. “And I certainly wouldn’t be standing with you all here tonight.”

He issued a heartfelt message to them, then translated: “I love you, I miss you — and stop giving out my phone number."
