Milo Ventimiglia received a star on the Walk of Fame alongside co-star Mandy Moore.
The 44-year-old actor attended the unveiling ceremony, which took place next to his This Is Us co-star’s spot on the famous boardwalk, on Monday.
“I am the sum of many people who have played such important and impactful roles in my life over the years,” the Heroes star said at the event. “This star represents a large group of people – it may say Milo Ventimiglia but it’s actually made up of 26 years of names both in front of and behind the camera professionally and personally.”
Moore, who plays Ventimiglia’s wife in the drama, celebrated the honor on Instagram.
“Congratulations to my TV husband and partner in crime, @miloanthonyventimiglia, for his STAR on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” the 37-year-old actress wrote, noting that she was unable to attend the ceremony because she was filming the last season of the series.
“Congratulations on this recognition and thank you for being a wonderful patriarch and carrying us for the past 6 years. Also the fact that our stars are side by side?? Come on!!” concluded the A Walk to Remember star.
After the honor, the actor told People that receiving his star was a dream come true.
“I remember coming to Hollywood as a kid to pick up lights for my theater productions when I was in high school, and driving around and seeing the stars,” Ventimiglia recalled. “You dream that one day your name will be on it, but then you kinda forget it, and now you’re standing on your name written on a sidewalk.”
