The internet—always desperately scanning for some positive news these days—was recently fortunate enough to adore some genuine love between The Mandalorian himself and his real-life sister, who just came out as a transgender woman.
45-year-old Pedro Pascal has lit up computers and televisions as the title character of Disney+'s Star Wars spinoff series. And now, he's lighting up internet feeds, the Huffington Post reports.
After Pacal's sister, Lux Pascal, came out as trans in an interview with Chilean Magazine, Ya, Pascal published an Instagram post that included the magazine cover along with Pascal's brief, but powerful show of support:
"Mi hermana, mi corazón, nuestra Lux."Translated, that reads:
"My sister, my heart, our Lux."
As the cover story detailed, Lux first identified as nonbinary before coming out as a trans woman.
She told Ya she began to receive hormone treatment in the summer of 2020 and plans to study acting at Juilliard in New York City. An instagram post made by Ya included multiple snippets from the interview, where Lux shared more of the story behind her journey.
She shared how pivotal family support like Pedro's was throughout the process.
"For everyone in my family my transition has been something very natural. Almost something they expected to happen."
And, regarding her brother:
"He has been an important part of this. He is also an artist and has been a guide. He was one of the first to give me the things that formed my identity."
When news of Lux Pascal's courageous decision to come out and Pedro Pascal's public support spread, the internet was loving it all.
