To say This Is Us is a unique show is an understatement. How many other shows have killed off one of their main characters, only to have him return week after week? In one way, that’s been a blessing for Milo Ventimiglia, because he’s only had to play about 20 years or so of Jack Pearson’s life. Poor Mandy Moore has spent hours a day in the makeup chair, because she’s been playing Rebecca Pearson across at least seven decades! When we spoke to Moore, she admitted that This Is Us has been a lot more than she’d bargained for — but has also been more rewarding than she could have imagined.
