Miko John Huges was born as the fourth child of Mary and John Huges. Because of his mother’s Native American ancestry, he was named with the Chickasaw word equivalent of “Chief”. His brothers are Mikhael and Mitchel, and his only sister is Molly.
There is no information about his early education, but it is possible that he was homeschooled as he spent much of his childhood acting.
Debut: Pet Sematary
Miko started his career at the very young age of 22 months in a public announcement.
However, it wasn’t until he was three years old that he landed his first credited role as Gage Creed in the iconic 1989 film “Pet Sematary” based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name – Gage, the younger child of the Creed family, dies tragically after being run over by a truck. His family, who had recently moved from Chicago to Ludlow, buried the deceased child in an Indian cemetery that would bring back the dead. If the child does indeed come back from the dead, he does so in a very sinister way.
Miko’s performance as Gage was equally surprising and horrifying, and was the first role of what would become a very successful career as an actor. Not only was the film a box office success, it also became a cult film.
In 2015, he was asked if he expected the film to be such a success. He answered: ‘Of course not at the time. I don’t think I knew I was acting for Pet Sematary; I was just pretending. I was practically a baby.’ In 2019, exactly 30 years after the release of the original film, Paramount Pictures is releasing a re-imagining of the film, with a new cast and a modern setting.
After his acting debut, Miko got a lot of offers – he got his first role in a series in “Babes”, followed by his short appearances in several series such as “Beverly Hills, 90210”, the crime drama “The Burden of Proof” and “Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper’.

However, one of his most memorable roles was that of Aaron in “Full House” from 1990 to 1995. While portraying this part, he said one of his most famous phrases: “When we get to the museum, we have to pack up those dead guys.” see in toilet paper’.
A shot of his facial expression during this series became the famous Brazilian meme years later, “Por que você não amadurece?” (Why don’t you grow up?). Hughes thanked his fans for it and even shared an alternate version of the meme on Instagram. After “Full House” ended, he made a brief appearance in the series “The Parent ‘Hood” as Arnie, and in the movie “Apolo 13” as Jeffrey Lovell.
From 1995 to 1998, he landed his second long-term role in a TV series when he appeared in “Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper,” in which he played the part of Tommy Anderson. After the show ended, he was cast in “Mercury Rising” starring Bruce Willis. Miko’s performance as Simon Lynch – an autistic boy who is persecuted by the government – earned him a Young Artist Award in the “Best Performance in a Feature Film – Leading Young Actor” category.
Roles for Teens and Adults
Miko got different roles as a child and teenager. However, it wasn’t until 2002 that he started playing more mature characters when he appeared as Young Dopler in the movie “Clockstoppers”. He then played the part of Peter Feldman in “Boston Public”.
As Miko grew up, he got fewer job openings in Hollywood than when he was a kid, and while he continued to act in TV series and movies, he was less frequent.
As he matured, Miko acted as Jensen in the movie “Remains” in 2011, and as Jeremy in “The Untold Story” in 2019. He also appeared briefly in the series “The New Adventures of Pinkgirl and The Scone”.
In 2013, Miko explored a possible new side of his career when he made his directorial debut of “Chilling Visions: 5 Senses of Fear”. The horror-themed film received mixed and average reviews from the audience.
In addition to his work as an actor and in the entertainment business, Miko discovered his love for music at a young age.
When asked how long he’d been a “rave” on Instagram, he replied, “Since always! I imported trance CDs from Germany and played glow sticks when I was 14 haha’. For what he shows on his social media accounts, he enjoys his job as a DJ and is successful at it.
As a child he became fascinated by bees and got his first beehive: ‘Some kids want dogs or cats – I wanted a beehive. I’ve now got my brother involved too. It helps pollinate all the plants in the area or orchard.’ He also reflects on his love for natural environments and bees: ‘they are (bees) so important to the environment. I have the feeling that bees are the transition between plant and animal in a weird way.
They are like sex organs of trees – blooming, blooming – there are many other insects that can pollinate, but not like bees do. Honey is fascinating.’
Despite his fame, Miko Hughes has chosen to keep his personal life and romantic relationships out of the spotlight. Even if his fans speculated for a while about his sexual orientation as gay, there is no evidence to support this hypothesis.
Miko Hughes has an estimated net worth of $500,000 as of 2020, which is the result of his work as an actor in various movies and series, mostly as a child actor.
Miko is a man of mixed ethnicity, with Native American descent. During his childhood he had blond hair, but his hair color has darkened and is currently black, combined with hazel eyes.
As an adult, he has a strong build and a handsome face. Although his weight is unknown, he is 1.63 m tall.
He was friends with actor/musician Joey Zimmerman.
“Pet Sematary” and Miko’s role as Gage were so iconic that some fans of the film and Stephen King’s novel have been tattooed with their favorite scenes from the film. Miko shared a photo on Instagram of one of those tattoos, made by artist Paul Acker on one of his clients: ‘the best I’ve seen!’ said the caption.
On February 20, 1991, he was interviewed on “The Tonight Show” by Johnny Carson, becoming the youngest guest in the show’s history.
Miko appeared in a 1995 McDonald’s commercial with his sister Molly.
Miko’s mother Mary Hughes is a writer, who wrote the screenplay for “Five At Dawn”, a film based on her Chickasaw grandmother. But even if the story caught the attention of several Hollywood directors, the movie was never made.
In addition to his role as an autistic child in “Mercury Rising”, he also played the role of a child on this spectrum in an episode of “Baywatch”.
