() —Before Pedro Pascal faced the infected in “The Last of Us,” he was a college student turned vampire in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” as noted by Sarah Michelle Gellar. on Instagram this Monday.
“When #Mother met #Father,” Gellar wrote in the caption of the photo of her and Pascal in their shared episode of “Buffy” in 1999.
Although Pascal has an active Instagram account, he reportedly only found out about Geller’s post during a “The Mandalorian” season 3 premiere event on Tuesday and was surprised and delighted.
“Something I just found out about and I’m so excited, and I can’t wait to get my phone back so I can see for myself, is that Sarah Michelle Gellar reminds me,” Pascal told Access Hollywood.
Pascal appeared in the season 4 premiere episode of “Buffy” playing Eddie, a college student who befriends Gellar, until she is forced to kill him when he is turned into a vampire.
The actor added Tuesday that he wants Gellar to know that he remembers “every moment of filming that episode” and said that “she was a very nice scene partner and we had a great time.”
Pascal also recalled filming the episode in a conversation with Entertainment Tonight, and said he remembers Gellar sharing his ice cream with him during the late-night filming on the UCLA campus, and that he had to wear his “vampire mask” while eating lunch. She said that Gellar even taught her how to always be on the right mark on the film set.
“She was the best,” he gushed.
But the social media love fest wasn’t over yet. Gellar saw Pascal’s comments from her red carpet interviews and shared a final thought in an Instagram Story on Wednesday saying, “Like I could get over you.”
