Is Miko Hughes autistic

Is miko hughes really autistic?

Miko Hughes has been acting since he was a little boy, starring as Gage in Pet Sematary when he was a toddler.  He is most famous for his role as Simon, a boy with autism, in the movie Mercury Rising  with Bruce Willis.  His spot-on portrayal of a boy with autism led many to wonder if he is truly autistic.

The answer is no, Miko Hughes is not autistic. He was coached by Dr. Bennett Leventhal, a child psychologist who helped him adopt the mannerisms, or lack therof, to portray a character with autism. Hughes is still acting, appearing in movies like Tropic Thunder.

  1. Miko played the role of an autistic boy perfectly. He me convinced til this very day. I didn’t think a little boy could portray a character, better than most adult actors. At that young age?
