Man on a Mission Jon Huertas inspires on- and off-screen Words by Briana Dodson Photographer: Diana Ragland Groomer: Bethany Garita Wardrobe: Apuje Kalu If you've seen HBO's Emmy award- winning miniseries Generation Kill, ABC's Castle or NBC's This Is Us, to name a few, you're probably familiar with Jon Huertas. But before Jon established himself as an actor, he was a kid in Catholic school getting in trouble for looking up girls' skirts on the playground. That is, until one of the nuns at school introduced him to a whole new world: performance arts. "I'd never been on a stage or thought about it until then. I had to sing a solo for a Christmas show and I took notice of how my performance affected the audience; how you can really draw emotions through performance. So, I stayed on that path throughout school."
