Early life [ edit ]

José Pedro Balmaceda Pascal, son of child psychologist Verónica Pascal Ureta and fertility doctor José Balmaceda Riera, was born on April 2, 1975 [1] in Santiago. He has Basque[4] and Spanish[2] ancestry, [2][3] respectively. His older sister's name is Javiera, his brother's is Nicolás, and his other sister, Lux, is an actress and transgender activist.

[7][8] Andrés was a pioneering figure in the urban guerrilla movement dedicated to toppling Augusto Pinochet's military dictatorship. [9]

Pascal claims his parents were committed Allende supporters and members of underground movements fighting the Pinochet regime. For this reason, nine months after he was born, his family sought refuge in the Venezuelan embassy in Santiago and were eventually granted political asylum in Denmark. Pascal was raised in Orange County, California, and San Antonio, Texas, after his family emigrated to the United States ([11][12]). By the time he was eight, he and his family were making frequent trips to Chile to see his 34 cousins. [14]

At Orange County School of the Arts, he majored in acting and graduated in 1993; later, at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, he earned his degree in 1997. A federal grand jury indicted his father and two uncles in 1995 for their roles in a fertility clinic scandal. [12][15] Pascal claims his dad didn't do anything wrong, so he, his mom, and his two youngest siblings all moved back to Chile. His mother committed suicide in 1999, [17][18]. Following her passing, he began professionally going by her maiden name [3][19] in tribute to her and because he claimed that Americans had trouble pronouncing the surname Balmaceda. [11][14]

His sister later remarked, "He has been an important part of this." He has been a mentor and an artist. A lot of the things that made me who I am today came from him. "[44]
