On NBC's popular melodrama series This is Us, Mandy Moore provides one of her most well-known and acclaimed performances as Rebecca Pearson, the widowed wife of Jack Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia) and the mother of triplets. Throughout the expansive series, Moore transforms between the ages of 25 and 68. That's not an easy task, and it is accomplished through not only her own versatile performance and the accomplished storytelling provided by the show's creator and writing team, but through several dependable and very talented make-up artists, costume designs and other on-hand professionals. But when it comes to playing the oldest variation of Rebecca, a woman that is twice the 34-year-old actress' age, Moore likes what she sees. When asked about her popular character's transformation on the award-winning drama series, here's what Mandy Moore said:
Mandy Moore's comments came from Page Six, and they were recorded while she was celebrating This is Us' season premiere, which aired last week. As the dramatic series continues to expand upon its epic story and tell its full scope, we should expect to see more from Moore's Rebecca at the age of 68 in the episodes to come. With that, Moore finds herself marveled at the work provided by her crew, and she only hopes she looks as good as her character does when she is 68 herself. Of course, it will be quite a good bit of time before that happens. But in the meantime, Moore is hoping to steal from beauty tips and make sure her appearance matches the looks of her character whenever it becomes her time to celebrate 68 years on this planet.
The show is now currently in the midst of its third season, and This is Us continues to be as twisty and dramatic as ever, as the actress can attest. The stakes of this heavily-watched series should only continue to rise. While it's hard to know what will become of This is Us as it continues to unfold its well-woven storyline in due fashion, Mandy Moore claims she knows how it will end. So, it's not necessarily a mystery, and there's ending in mind for the unspooling series. But eager viewers will find that information out by watching one of the most popular shows on television at the current moment.
The twists and turns will continue to come on This Is Us, but Mandy Moore hopes that when it comes time for her to be the same age as Rebecca later on in life, the actress and singer-songwriter hopes she shares the same sharp looks.
