Who is Milo on ‘A Million Little Things’?

Milo is a minor character in the ABC drama series A Million Little Things. His character first appeared in Season 3, Episode 17, “Justice: Part 1,” and went on to star in five more episodes throughout the third and fourth seasons. When we first meet Milo in Season 3, we learn that he came out at 9 and is one year older than Danny Dixon (Chance Hurstfield).

Throughout the series, Milo is one of Danny’s love interests. However, Gary wasn’t entirely supportive of their relationship because Milo cheated on Danny while they were together the first time around. In Season 4, Episode 13, “Fresh Start,” Gary tries to convince Danny to break up with Milo.
