Gabriel Luna has admitted that his villain in the new Netflix series, ‘FUBAR’, was inspired by Peter Pascal.
‘FUBAR’ stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, who puts himself in the shoes of a nearly retired CIA agent who discovers that his daughter is also part of the establishment. Luna plays Boro, an evil arms dealer that a father-daughter duo must track down.
Speaking to the Weekly about his role, Moon admitted that he was inspired by another villain played by Paschal, who also plays Moon’s brother in the apocalyptic horror film “Extremum Nostrum”.
“Pedro, with whom I worked on ‘The Last of Us,’ a film called ‘Weight of Talents,’ in which he played a kind of arms dealer, but he was very adorable and had a lot of personality,” Luna explained.
So I told him that I had taken something from such a character for the series I was doing. He said to me: It is good. I’m glad I could help you'”.
Luna also focused on perfecting the accent of Boron, who is from Guyana. The translator studied in England and spent a lot of time in the United States.
“He is a man with a lot of experience. Yes, in my mind, he is reminded of the acuity, but he is also based on the English verse in the way he speaks,” he shared.
Pascal and Luna are expected to reprise their roles as Joel and Tommy in the second season of ‘The Last Us’, which has been delayed by the Writers Guild of America (WGA).
Series creators Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann completed all work on the series, including writing and casting.
‘FUBAR’ is available to stream on Netflix. The first season of “The Last Us” is available streaming on HBO Max.
