Pedro Pascal biography
The son of fertility specialist José Balmaceda Riera and child psychologist Verónica Pascal Ureta, José Pedro Balmaceda Pascal was born in Santiago on April 2, 1975.
He has a younger brother named Nicolás, a younger sister named Lux who is an activist and a performer, and an older sister named Javiera.
His mother was the cousin of socialist Chilean President Salvador Allende’s nephew Andrés Pascal Allende (through his sister Laura). In order to topple Augusto Pinochet’s military dictatorship, Andrés served as an early leader of the urban guerrilla movement known as the Movement of the Revolutionary Left.
Pascal claims that his parents were ardent supporters of Allende and prominent members of anti-Pinochet guerrilla organizations. As a result, his family requested asylum in the Venezuelan embassy in Santiago nine months after his birth, and they were subsequently given political asylum in Denmark.
The family eventually migrated to the US, where Pascal was raised in San Antonio, Texas and Orange County, California. His family was able to frequently travel back to Chile by the time he was eight years old to see his 34 relatives.
In 1995, a federal grand jury indicted his father in connection with activities at a fertility clinic he co-owned with two other men.
This led to the return of his mother, father, and two younger siblings to Chile; Pascal maintains that his father did nothing wrong. In 1999, his mother committed suicide.
In memory of her and because he believed Americans had trouble pronouncing the surname Balmaceda, he started using her last name professionally after she passed away.
