Ryan Guzman, key participant of 9-1-1, revealed interesting insights about his character, Eddie, and the character’s adolescent son, Christopher, portrayed by Gavin McHugh. The actors, who have been part of the show since the second season, have exhibited a remarkable evolution on-screen. In the seventh season, they’ll be navigating new territories.

Ryan Guzman and Gavin McHugh’s Characters in Achieving New Milestones

Guzman, 37, expressed his awe at watching McHugh, 13, mature both as a person and an artist. Their characters are key in the ABC series, with Eddie being a single dad leaning on his rescue team, the 118, in raising Christopher, who suffers from cerebral palsy. Season 7, however, depicts Christopher’s quest for independence, arousing new challenges for Eddie as a parent.

Christopher’s Journey Towards Independence

In the first episode, tensions heighten as Eddie discovers Christopher’s multiple romantic interests. Though Eddie seeks advice from fellow team member Buck, played by Oliver Stark, he realizes the need for granting Christopher more autonomy. Guzman hints at forthcoming explorations of Christopher’s new persona and the challenges Eddie might face in letting go control.

Praising Gavin McHugh’s Performance

Guzman commends McHugh for his admirable portrayal of a teen facing cerebral palsy. He noted McHugh’s ability to maintain the lighthearted nature amidst the tension he shares with his on-screen father.

Eddie’s Personal Life Also in Focus

Season 7 also spotlights Eddie’s romantic life, involving his girlfriend Marisol, portrayed by Edy Ganem. A particular episode features the couple moving in together hastily, which leads to Eddie retracting the proposal. Discovering their rushed approach prompts Eddie to reconsider his decisions, putting his son Christopher’s welfare at the forefront.

Eddie’s Character Development

Long term viewers will note a lighter side of Eddie emerging from the traumatic experiences of previous seasons – his service in Afghanistan, coping with the death of his estranged wife, PTSD, and surviving a life-threatening gunshot. According to Guzman, Eddie’s newfound sense of community, especially his bond with Buck and Captain Nash, played by Peter Krause, enables Eddie to display vulnerability and lightheartedness.
