What's the 'This Is Us' Cast Like Between Takes? Susan Kelechi Watson Spills!

What's the 'This Is Us' Cast Like Between Takes? Susan Kelechi Watson Spills!

Susan Kelechi Watson is glowing on the cover of Good Housekeeping‘s March issue, on newsstands tomorrow (February 19)!

Here’s what the 37-year-old This Is Us actress had to share with the mag:

*Spoiler alert!* On Beth and Randall’s “rocky” future: “They’re trying to work out where they want to be as individuals, and it’s creating friction. I’ve heard many women—friends included—who have said once they became mothers, they lost themselves, and how important it is for a woman to know who she is without the other titles. Those titles are beautiful things, but it’s not the definition of who Beth is, so I love her feeling uncomfortable, and on her own search.”

On seasons three and four of This Is Us: “This season Beth has become undone in ways we haven’t seen before, and that will continue. We’ll have an episode about where she came from. It’s been wonderful to learn about the dreams she had, who she wanted to become—and how far from that she is.”

On filming with all her castmates (it’s like recess!): “The craziest times are when we’re all filming. I feel for those directors! It’s hard to wrangle us, because we get along so well and it’s like, ‘Heyyyy, we get to talk!’ It can get a little chaotic. You have Chris Sullivan [who plays Toby] and Justin [Hartley] and Sterling [K. Brown] all cracking jokes. And Justin has the quickest wit—you just go, ‘How did you come up with that so fast?’”

Sterling on his on-screen wife (Susan), whom he was two years ahead of at NYU graduate school: “I’ve always been a fan of her work and admired her. Sue is just cool people, cool like the other side of the pillow. So finally getting to do something together has been wonderful.”
