If Pedro Pascal has been doing anything recently, it’s slaughtering – and Sarah Michelle Gellar has taken notice.
Pascal was a college student-turned-vampire on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” before fighting the Infected in “The Last of Us,” as the titular TV actress reminded on Instagram on Monday.
“When #Mother met #Father,” Gellar captioned a throwback photo of herself and Pascal from their 1999 “Buffy” episode.
Despite having an active Instagram account, Pascal was startled and happy to discover Gellar’s post when he appeared to learn about it for the first time during the Season 3 premiere of “The Mandalorian” on Tuesday.
“What I just found out, and I can’t wait to get my phone back so I can check at it myself, is that Sarah Michelle Gellar remembers me,” he told Access Hollywood.
Pascal made an appearance on the Season 4 premiere episode of “Buffy” as Eddie, a college student whom Gellar’s star slayer befriends but is later compelled to stake after he transforms into a vampire.
On Tuesday, the actor added that he remembered “every moment of shooting that episode” and that “she was such a nice scene partner and we had the finest time.”
Pascal also spoke with Entertainment Tonight about filming the episode, recalling Gellar sharing ice cream with him during the night shoot on the UCLA campus and having to wear his “vamp mask” while eating his lunch. He claimed that Gellar even showed him how to hit his target on set.
“She was the best,” he said.
Yet the social media love-fest was far from done. Pascal’s statements from his red carpet interviews prompted Gellar to express one final thought on her Instagram Story on Wednesday, writing, “As if I could ever forget you.”
