Del Arco later developed Hugh's "innocence" and "wonder" on Eddie, incorporating his own tragedy into the role: "I had just lost my partner a year before," astonished and lonely, and I was eager to reveal it."
A year and a half after moving to Hollywood, Del Arco met Kyle Fritz, a talent manager. Del Arco and his partner started dating around the time Del Arco appeared in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "I, Borg" and later married.
Jeri Ryan, one of Del Arco's best friends, returned to her role in 2020 as a Borg character in the Star Trek franchise; when Ryan returned to her role as Del Arco, she rehearsed with her to help her plan.
