Pedro Pascal Supports Sister Javiera Balmaceda — Who Has a Named Film — on Oscars 2023 Honorary pathway
Pedro Pascal was a glad more youthful sibling as he upheld his sister Javiera Balmaceda at the 2023 Oscars.
The 47-year-old star of Last of Us was present at the 95th Academy Awards on Sunday night, introducing Best Animated Short and Best Documentary Short alongside Elizabeth Olsen. However, he was also there for his sister. Balmaceda was present for Argentina, 1985, the film for which she was nominated for Best International Film. That category was ultimately won by All Quiet on the Western Front, a German film.
On the red carpet ahead of the ceremony, which was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, the siblings smiled and took photos with each other.
“It’s exciting to be part of such an ambitious project that will take audiences on a journey through a pivotal point in Argentina’s history,” Amazon Studios’ head of local originals for Latin America, Balmaceda, told Variety in August 2021.
“The amazing and internationally recognized Argentine cast, director, and entire Argentinean production team are sure to bring us one of the most compelling and well-produced films, that will keep our audience talking,” Balmaceda continued.
Because Pascal changed his performing name to honor their late mother, Verónica, the two siblings have different last names. According to what the Chilean-American star told PEOPLE in 2020, Pascal changed his professional last name from Balmaceda, his father’s name, to Pascal, his mother’s name, shortly after her death while he was living in New York City to begin his career as an actor.
She was never a stage mom and was always extremely supportive. He stated, “I always felt like she knew something that I didn’t.” Without her, my success would never have been possible.
