Game of Thrones spoilers ahead: Pascal played Oberyn Martell, who brutally died when his eyes were gouged out by The Mountain with his thumbs in Season 4.
"I remember, early, because of Game of Thrones and the way that my character died, people were super into taking selfies with their thumbs in my eyes," Pascal said at the 2:13 mark. "At first, I was so, kind of, earnest and happy about the success of the character in the show, and I would let them...in New York, of all places!"
"I ended up getting a little bit of an eye infection," he added.
Following his death in Game of Thrones, Pascal went on to play former DEA agent Javier Peña in the Netflix series Narcos before taking on leading small screen roles as Din Djarin in the Disney+ series The Mandalorian and Joel in HBO's video game adaptation The Last of Us.
