The artist creates an exhibition dedicated to Pedro Pascal

A British artist who was doing an exhibition in honor of actor Pedro Pascal was disappointed when the actor visited the gallery displaying the paintings while it was closed.

Heidi Gentle Burrell unveiled her exhibition “ADHD Hyperfixation & Why It Looks Like I Love Pedro Pascal” on June 3rd at Rhodes Art Gallery in Kent, UK.

But when the The Mandlorian star tried to view the paintings on August 6, the gallery wasn’t open. according to NME.

“Of course it would be fantastic if he came back” Burrell told the BBC.

“For your actual subject to look at themselves — a person knows themselves in the mirror so well they’re the only person who can really tell if you have a likeness.”

The Chilean actor appeared at the then-closed exhibition — and them — along with fellow actor Russell Tovey and his “Talk Art” podcast co-host Robert Diamen shared the moment on Instagram.

When The Last of Us star returns and Burrell meets him, she’ll already be prepared with topics to talk about.

“I’d love to bore him with ADHD and reassure him I’m not obsessing, it’s just part of my fixation,” she said.

Composed of 14 artworks, the collection is a mix of paintings and sketches honoring Pascal, best known for his role as Oberyn Martell in 2014’s Game of Thrones.

Burrell would also like to one day sit Pascal down with her so she can draw him in person, rather than using online photos as source material.

“Fortunately there are a surprising number of photos of Pascal so it was nice that it was the best I could get. You can capture it from practically every single angle,” she explained.

“But of course nothing beats the original when trying to capture something or someone, so it would be nice.”
