Last night’s Emmys saw us get a real-life Pearson reunion, as stars like Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia (both nominees) stepped out. We’ve already gushed about Moore’s dress, but we rounded up the other This Is Us cast looks at the Emmys this year too. You may know these stars solely as their This Is Us counterparts, but many of them surprised us with bold looks or total makeovers from their time on the show.
As we know from watching the Game of Thrones cast grow up, working with child actors means expecting your cast to change wildly between seasons. On This Is Us, those actors include the daughters of Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson): 10-year-old Faithe Herman, 14-year-old Eris Baker, and 15-year-old Lyric Ross. Then there are the cast members who play young versions of the Big Three: 21-year-old Hannah Zeile and 12-year-old Mackenzie Hancsicsak for Kate; 18-year-old Niles Fitch and 11-year-old Lonnie Chavis for Randall; and 20-year-old Logan Shroyer and 12-year-old Parker Bates for Kevin.
Many of these actors have been along for the ride since Season 1, and they’ve played a huge role in shaping the story as we know it. It’s wonderful to watch them grow as performers, and even better to see them come into their own as red carpet stars (can we please discuss Faithe Herman’s yellow dress?!). Here are all the This Is Us cast looks — take a look.
