As Randall Pearson’s wife, Beth has been part of the family longer than anybody outside of “The Big Three” on This Is Us. So she’s seen plenty of the family’s ups and downs, and – from what we’ve seen of her so far – it seems like she’s usually dealt with them in a caring, understanding way. We talked to Susan Kelechi Watson about that aspect of her character, and Watson feels like it’s one of her stronger points.

After a long time spent on a hit TV show, actors can sometimes find themselves becoming a stereotype. For many fans, it would be difficult to watch Sandra Oh and not think about Christina Yang, the character she played on Grey’s Anatomy for 10 seasons. However, she’s been able to do that in spectacular fashion with Eve Polastri, the character she plays on BBC America’s gripping psychological thriller Killing Eve. In fact, Oh earned another Emmy Award nomination (and a Golden Globes Award win) for her work on the show. As Killing Eve gets set for its second season, we asked Oh why she thinks the show is resonating with viewers the way it has. (Click on the media bar to hear Sandra Oh)
The second season of Killing Eve will premiere April 7 on BBC America
Christine Baranski was only one of three actors to appear in every single episode of The Good Wife. And now, she’s been playing the same character, Diane Lockhart, on The Good Fight.

That’s a lot of time in Diane’s shoes … over the years, has Baranski herself become any more similar to the character she plays? (Click on the media bar below to hear Christine Baranski)
Season 3 of The Good Fight premieres March 19 on CBS All Access.
Big Little Lies already featured plenty of star power in its first season, including Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, and Shailene Woodley. But the much-heralded HBO show is getting a major boost in its second season, with the addition of a third Oscar-winner: the legendary Meryl Streep. With movie pitches arriving at her door on a daily basis, why did Streep decide to join a TV show? She told us the reason is quite simple. (Click on the media bar below to hear Meryl Streep)
Big Little Lies will return to HBO for its second season in June.
Marcia Clark didn’t exactly make a name for herself in the entertainment business: She became a household name because of her involvement in the infamous O.J. Simpson murder trial back in the 1990s. However, she’s parlayed that high-profile experience into a show-business career. She’s the co-creator and producer of a new show coming to ABC called The Fix. It’s about a character she knows well – an L.A. prosecutor who loses a high-profile murder case. Clark told us that it’s difficult for the justice system to work when somebody famous is involved, no matter how many prosecutors are working on the case.
