‘Ted Lasso’ Stars Weigh in on the Lion vs. Panda Debate


“What would you slightly be? A lion or a panda?” That was the query that Juno Temple‘s Keeley posed to a bunch that included Ted (Jason Sudeikis), Rebecca (Hannah Waddingham), and then-boyfriend Jamie Tartt (Phil Dunster) all the best way again in Ted Lasso Season 1 Episode 2. Now, as we’re counting down the times till Ted Lasso Season 2 premieres on Apple TV+, we thought it will be enjoyable to revisit this hilarious second with the Ted Lasso forged off-screen.

Decider sat down with the forged of Ted Lasso a number of weeks in the past to press them on all issues Ted Lasso Season 2. However in between asking spoiler-filled questions and gushing over our favourite onscreen ‘ships, we posed the identical query that Keeley as soon as did: What would you slightly be? A lion or a panda?

Hannah Waddingham herself kicked off the nice debate by exuberantly agreeing along with her alter-ego, Rebecca. “Uh, hey? I’m Leo, Leo rising, and Yr of the Tiger,” she mentioned, itemizing off her astrological credentials. “That’s why I really like that final line, when [Rebecca] says, ‘What’s black and white and pink throughout? A panda that will get anyplace close to a f*cking lion.’”

Later, Ted Lasso star, producer, and author Brendan Hunt broke down the talk with Coach Beard’s personal philosophical bent: “I imply the lion/panda dichotomy feels just like the lover and fighter dichotomy. I’m no fighter. I’m your panda. Come to me. Hug me. Do this bamboo. It’s gonna make you are feeling bizarre for a short time, however you’re gonna like what it does to you after that.”

After we polled everybody from the likes of Dani Rojas (Cristo Fernadez) and Sam Obisanya (Toheeb Jimoh) to Higgins (Jeremy Swift), Roy (Brett Goldstein) and beginner Sharon (Sarah Niles), there was a winner within the lion vs. panda combat! However do you agree with the Ted Lasso forged?

Ted Lasso Season 2 premieres on Apple TV+ on Friday, July 23.
