This week’s installment of This Is Us gave us the backstory we’ve been waiting for: Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson). And now, the 37-year-old actress is opening up about the iconic episode and why she insisted on being her own stunt double.
In a recent interview with People, Watson revealed that dance is a big part of her life, which is why she refused to use a body double in season three, episode 13 of the popular NBC series.
“Dance is so important to me because it’s a way of expression without speaking,” she said.
The episode concluded with Beth breaking into choreography for the first time in years. Although she hadn’t danced in a very long time, the moves came naturally to the This Is Us star.
