Beyond his iconic role in ‘This is Us’, Hartley has graced the small screen in various other television series, including the CW’s ‘Smallville’, ABC’s ‘Emily Owens, M.D.,’ ‘Revenge,’ ‘Mistresses’ and NBC’s revival of ‘Quantum Leap’.
In addition to his television work, Hartley has showcased his talent in voice acting for popular animated series like ‘Robot Chicken’ and ‘Family Guy’, and has made appearances in numerous films, demonstrating his versatility across different mediums.
His exceptional contributions to the entertainment industry have been recognized with two Screen Actors Guild Awards, both earned for his outstanding performance in ‘This is Us’. Currently, Hartley is poised to embark on a new chapter in his career with a leading role in the upcoming CBS series ‘Tracker’.
Amidst his professional success, Hartley has found enduring happiness in his personal life, particularly with his wife, Sofia Pernas. In an interview with Haute Living, Hartley expressed profound admiration and contentment in his relationship with Pernas, emphasising the simplicity and joy that accompanies finding the right life partner.
Prior to his marriage to Pernas, Hartley embarked on two significant relationships. His first marriage was to his Passions co-star Lindsay Korman, whom he wed after a whirlwind romance. The couple welcomed their daughter, Isabella Hartley, before ultimately parting ways amicably after eight years of marriage.
Subsequently, Hartley found love again with his ‘Selling Sunset’ co-star Chrishell Stause, exchanging vows in a picturesque outdoor ceremony at Malibu’s Calamigos Ranch. Despite the end of their marriage, Hartley and Stause remain cordial.
