Noemí González portrayed Mia Rosales on ‘The Young and the Restless’
In November 2018, González first debuted in the role of Mia Rosales on the CBS soap opera. She introduced as the latest member of the Rosales family, joining Rey, Arturo, and Lola. She came back to town in order to win back her estranged husband, Rey, who was now involved with Sharon Newman. Mia was also involved with Rey’s younger brother, Arturo.
Mia and Rey ended up renewing their vows, but she ended up sleeping with Arturo soon after. After faking a pregnancy to keep Rey, Mia ended up getting actually pregnant and didn’t know if the father was Rey or Arturo. The baby ended up being Arturo’s. After some drama ensued, Mia and Arturo eventually got together officially and ended up leaving town.

Before her final episode aired, she posted on Instagram, “Yesterday was my last episode of Mia Rosales, and I want to thank everyone who tuned in, supported me, this iconic show, and the Rosales family. But most importantly, a special thank you to the ones who saw me. Those of you from all over who sent me love and encouragement while I gave it my all in the soap world and met its loyal fans. Lord knows this was a crazy amazing chapter in my career that I won’t soon forget thanks to my new loyal loves. All this to say I see you, and I love and appreciate you. Stay tuned for what comes next!”
