Mandy Moore Recalls Trying 'Terrifying' Makeup Looks for Old Rebecca on 'This Is Us'

Mandy Moore is looking back at some of more memorable makeup looks she had on This Is Us.

The 37-year-old actress has spent a lot of time in the makeup chair for the show, with Variety reporting in 2018 that it took “about three hours” to put her in old-age makeup for her present-day scenes.

In an interview with E!, Mandy revealed that while the current process to apply her makeup results in a more authentic look, some of the earlier ideas for her makeup and prosthetics were flat out “terrifying.”

“I remember the first hair and makeup test,” she shared. “I had this really long gray wig. They made her look like she was in her late 90s.” She explained she had to wear a mask over her eyebrows and lips and also wear “fake eyebrows.”

“We have so many crazy funny photos I will have to put out — maybe once the show is done,” Mandy continued, adding that she went through many fittings to figure out whether aging her on-screen in a believable way was even possible.

She also noted that when This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman first discussed the idea of playing Old Rebecca with her, she “was terrified.”

Mandy told Variety in 2018, “I love that I’m given this opportunity to play this character from 25 to 68. That’s so unheard of. So I don’t begrudge the process that comes along with it.”

The actress was recently spotted at a screening for This Is Us‘ final season and you can see all the pics here!
