Premium- This Is Us -Jon Huertas On The 'This Is Us' Moment He Wants To See & *That* Jack Theory
No offense to Jack Pearson, but it's time to step aside and let Miguel take over the romance. After five seasons of telling Jack and Rebecca's love story on This Is Us, it's high time Miguel and Rebecca got their shot. And star Jon Huertas knows just where to start. Speaking with The Dipp about his character's This Is Us journey, Huertas revealed the one Rebecca and Miguel scene he really wants to see on the show, and it's a doozy.
"I want to see the moment when they both realize that the person sitting across from them is the person they want to spend the rest of their lives with," Huertas tells me over the phone. "It might be the first moment that they are even physical with each other in that way. I don't know if it's just holding hands or the first kiss..." For the record, the actor has no idea what that moment might be.
Despite playing an onscreen couple with Mandy Moore for five years, Huertas admits that show creator Dan Fogelman loves to surprise his actors, which requires a decent amount of secret keeping. "They've got surprises for even Mandy and I," he adds. "Mandy and I don't 100% know what happens right after Jack's death or even the year or two of grieving that followed Jack's death, and what happens between that and when they're finally married and older."
