In the latest episode of This Is Us on May 10, the Pearson children deal with their mother, Rebecca’s, health issues after her husband Migel passes away.
On the Late Night show with Jimmy Fallon, Mandy Moore talks about the heartbreaking episode. “You might need a day off from work,” she said.
Moore, who plays Rebecca, admitted to throwing up after reading the script for the episode.
“It’s really close to the bone for me,” she said. “This has been my life for the last six years and it’s like I have to simultaneously say goodbye to the character, to my family and friends on set.”
She added, “This character’s also coincidentally saying goodbye as well, so there was a lot wrapped up in it.”
Mandy also said she took some props as memorbilia of her 6 years on the show.
“Milo and I went and did one last lap through the Pearson house and took some of the family photos off the wall and just put the frames back up. They were going to throw those pictures away anyway but they meant something to us.”
Mandy also took a Steelers jersey and Rebecca’s engagement ring.
