Kelsie Gibson had a sit-down with Moore for her partnership with the health and wellness company, Nature’s Way. During their talk, she tried to get as much information as possible about fate of the actress’ character on the show.
While the actress refused to give any spoilers, she hinted that the future fate of Rebecca Pearson might be heartbreaking to fans.
She further said,
“In typical ‘This Is Us’ fashion, it is true to life. But it costs a lot. It’s going to be a lot for people to digest emotionally, but it’s real.”
The show is known for its shocking twists and while one would think fans would be used to that by now, that is not the case.
Asides hinting about her character’s fate, Moore also disclosed that the producers and NBC are trying to determine how long the show will span. And when they do, the renewal will be announced all at once unlike the usual way of renewing season after season.
Just in case you’re unaware, Moore, a 33-year-old actress plays the role of 66-year-old Rebecca on the show. To transform into a grandmother, she’s made to undergo close to three hours of prosthetic and makeup transformations.
