We need to talk about the fact that Sarah Paulson and Pedro Pascal have been BFFs forever

Last week on Late Night with Seth Meyers, the one and only Pedro Pascal told the story of how he was cast as Oberyn Martell for Season 4 of Game of Thrones. Turns out, all you need is a lot of hard work and fairy godmother Sarah Paulson on your side to get your audition tape in front of showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

Wait, hold up a second. Back up. Sarah Paulson managed to secure Pascal’s role on the show, because the two have known each other since they were 18 years old. 

According to one interview, where Paulson actually interviewed Pascal for Interview Magazine, the two first met back in 1993 during his first year at NYU, and they’ve been close ever since — Paulson actually FORCED Pascal into watching the Red Wedding episode of Game of Thrones with her. Only a true BFF would do that. This is too precious.

Thankfully for us, the two are both mega-talented stars, and cameras exist, so their friendship has been well documented over the years on the red carpet. Because why take a date when you can take your best friend??

The earliest, and maybe cutest, picture of them together goes back to 2008, and they were such BABIES!
