The love between an actor and a director can be very strong. We’ve heard Mark Hamill discuss his working relationship with Star Wars’ George Lucas, and Michael B. Jordan has spoken highly of his Black Panther and Creed director Ryan Coogler on plenty of occasions. Patty Jenkins is another director who has managed to forge lasting relationships with her stars. Pedro Pascal recently had the pleasure of working with her on Wonder Woman 1984, and he also seems to have formed a bond with her. This was evidenced by his recent birthday post to her, which includes an incognito Gal Gadot sporting her tiara.
That brief description alone should tell you that Pedro Pascal found a pretty distinct way to mark Patty Jenkins’ recent birthday. And not only does the photo feature Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot, but it also features Pascal himself who’s in costume as Maxwell Lord. You can see the post for yourself down below:
I don’t know what I love more: the photo itself or Pedro Pascal’s sweet caption. And what’s even sweeter is that Gal Gadot even provided a loving response in the comments. So it’s pretty clear to see that there’s plenty of love among the Wonder Woman collaborators.
Gal Gadot also wished Patty Jenkins well on her special day and did so by sharing a number of sweet photos on her Instagram account. That post is available to check out down below:
The Wonder Woman crew is known for showing each other love, especially on their birthdays. A few years back, Patty Jenkins actually celebrated Gal Gadot’s day by dropping an image from Wonder Woman 1984. At this point, Jenkins and Gadot almost feel like a package deal and are solidifying themselves as a powerful creative duo. At present, they’re even developing a Cleopatra movie.
Considering the positive things people say about Patty Jenkins, it’s easy to see why Pedro Pascal had no problem becoming friends with the filmmaker. And from what we’ve learned about his work on the film, it would seem that he was given free rein when it came to developing his villainous character. Like his role on Disney+’s The Mandalorian, Maxwell Lord seems to have been a dream come true for Pascal and, for that, he certainly owes a great deal to Jenkins.
Hopefully, the relationship between Patty Jenkins and Pedro Pascal endures for years to come. It would definitely be great to see the two creatives team up for another movie. But until that happens, fans can check out their work in Wonder Woman 1984 on HBO Max, which you can sign up for using this link (opens in new tab).
