This Is Us’ Jon Huertas Proves He’s The Most Underrated Pearson

Miguel Rivas is a lesson in patience.

When the character, played by a veteran actor Jon Huertasfirst appeared on It’s us, fans weren’t quite sure what to make of him. After all, he was billed as Jack’s (Milo Ventimiglia) best friend who married Jack’s wife, Rebecca (mandy moore). A difficult situation for anyone to make a good impression.

With the May 24 series finale fast approaching, Jon takes time to reflect on Miguel’s less than regular, but ultimately fulfilling journey.

“I think Miguel is always in the moment. It’s great for his character. He doesn’t expect anything to go to plan or to perfection,” Jon said in a It’s us retrospective. “I think Miguel doesn’t live in black and white. He lives in gray.”

It’s often had to be that way throughout the series, especially with Kevin (Justin Hartley), who has never seen Miguel anything other than a stepfather.
