Pedro Pascal        

Best Known for Portraying Oberyn Martell in HBO's Series "Game of Thrones"

Pedro Pascal is a Chilean American actor. He is perhaps best known for portraying Oberyn Martell in the fourth season of the HBO series "Game of Thrones."

Pascal was born in Santiago. Soon after his birth, his family was granted political asylum in Denmark while Chile was under the military dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet. He was raised in Orange County, California, and San Antonio, Texas. He studied acting at the Orange County School of the Arts and New York University's Tisch School of the Arts.

Pascal has appeared in several television series including "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "The Good Wife," "Homeland," "The Mentalist" and "Graceland." He appeared as kidnapper Reggie in the "Law & Order: Criminal Intent." He was cast in the pilot for the 2011 Wonder Woman television adaptation, but the show was not picked up. In June 2013, he was cast as Prince Oberyn Martell in the fourth season of the HBO series "Game of Thrones," arguably his best known role to date.

Pascal has extensive stage experience as both an actor and director, receiving the LA Drama Critics Circle Award and Garland Award for his role in the International City Theater production of "Orphans," and has performed in classical and contemporary works. He has appeared Off-Broadway in "Maple and Vine" by Jordan Harrison, "Beauty of the Father" by Nilo Cruz, Roberto Aguirre-Sacassa's "Based on a Totally True Story," Trista Baldwin's "Sand," David Greenspan's "Old Comedy," Terrence McNally's "Some Me", and Shakespeare in the Park's 2006 production of "Macbeth." He is a member of New York City's LAByrinth Theater Company.
