*Los Angeles – NBC’s hit series “This Is Us” is still on fire during its third season in which EURweb visited the set at Paramount Studios to chat with some of the cast.
Although they couldn’t let on much about what we can expect to see this season, it was clear that they were still very much in love with their characters and the writing of this show.
Sterling K. Brown who plays Randall Pearson on the show says that he’s able to sit in on many of the writing sessions and is very excited for what the audience will see soon. He also sings the praises of Susan Kelechi Watson, who plays opposite of him as Randall’s wife, Beth.
“I love that woman,” he says. “I just want to state; Susan Kelechi Watson needs to be nominated for supporting actress in a drama series.” Sterling continues, “Not that she needs it. I need it. I need her to be recognized for the tremendous work that she’s putting in.”
Chrissy Metz’ who portrays Kate says …
“That’s why this show works because it’s not just one character or one relationship, it’s a whole family and a lot of things navigate the waters together.”
After the set visit, Paramount shuttled reporters, staff and cast over to one of their screening rooms to view upcoming episode “Our Little Island Girl,” set to air Tuesday, February 19 at 9:00 PM on NBC.
During the Q&A session, the panel announced that Eboni Freeman celebrated writing her first episode with This Is Us, which surrounds “Beth” and “Zoe” (played by Melanie Liburd) as they take a trip back home to care for Beth’s mother, portrayed by veteran actress, Phylicia Rashad. This episode’s script truly delves into the characteristics of strong black women and what that means for this show. One of the primary topics in this upcoming episode is Beth’s relationship with dance, which is true for Susan Watson who admitted that she’s danced for most of her life. Director, Anne Fletcher, spoke about the joy of being able to capture Susan in her element which truly comes across on screen.
Be sure to catch “This Is Us”, Tuesdays on NBC at 9:00-10:00 p.m. ET!
