YOUNGEST ACTOR

When the world was introduced to Mandy Moore playing the role of a granny, most viewers felt the actress must be one of the oldest in the present-day Pearson family, but the reverse is the case.

While she plays a grandmother in the series, Moore is the youngest of the adult actors in her family, the Pearsons. Sterling K. Brown, at 42, is the oldest in the family.

ALMOST ABOUT SEXTUPLETS

The show as it is known today would not have seen the light of day, but rather, it would have been about sextuplets. According to reports, the show was initially titled "36," but show creator Dan Fogelman decided to go with something more creative and suitable.

Initially, a movie was what the show creator had in mind, and the film was to focus on the story of Jack and Rebecca and their sextuplets. Everything ended up going the other way, and "This Is Us" was born.
