Pedro Pascal is channeling his inner tribute mastermind in honor of the iconic Carl Weathers, who recently bid us adieu from this cosmic stage.
Carl, the dashing co-star alongside Pedro in the epic saga of The Mandalorian from 2019 to 2023, gracefully bowed out on Thursday (February 1). At 76 orbits around the sun, he left behind a legacy that shone brighter than a supernova.
On Friday (February 2), in the aftermath of this cosmic shake-up, Pedro, a mere 48 years young, took to the virtual soapbox of social media to unleash a tsunami of sentiment.
“Words flounder like a fish out of water 💔 #CarlWeathers,” declared The Last of Us luminary, accompanied by a pictorial ode to the departed star.
For those dwelling in the pop culture shadows, Carl was the mastermind behind the character Greef Karga in Disney+’s The Mandalorian. But his cosmic conquest didn’t stop there; he also flexed his acting muscles as Apollo Creed in the Rocky franchise, and who could forget his impeccable portrayal of Dillon in the otherworldly masterpiece that is 1987’s Predator?
As the stars twinkle a little less brightly today, let us remember Carl Weathers not for the roles he played, but for the indelible mark he left on our collective hearts. Fly high, cosmic cowboy. Fly high. 🚀
