If we know anything about the Pearsons on This Is Us, it’s that they’re great at pep talks.
So, when we chatted with Eris Baker, who plays Tess on the series, we were curious to know if her on-screen parents, Sterling K. Brown (Randall) and Susan Kelechi Watson (Beth), are as great with advice off-screen as they are when the camera’s rolling. Her answer? A wholehearted yes.
The 14-year-old This Is Us star explained, “They’re so giving when it comes to advice, which makes me really happy because I would love one day to be as amazing of an actor as them.”
She went on to share the best advice they’ve ever offered her: “Some advice that they have given me is to always focus on your craft and never get distracted when it comes to what you want. If you do have a goal to conquer then you have to give it your all. I think that is amazing advice and I’m very thankful for [it],” she said.
