LOS ANGELES — NBC's emotionally wrenching drama, This Is Us, brings tears to viewers' eyes on a weekly basis. So, which of the show's stars is the weepiest? We asked the cast.
Actor Chris Sullivan says, hands-down, it's his onscreen wife, played by Chrissy Metz. And Metz agrees.
Metz, who plays Kate Pearson, admits to being a prime crybaby candidate. She says the tears are often close-at-hand.
"They're always right here for me," she says, gesturing toward her throat. "And sometimes it's not appropriate. Like, sometimes, Chrissy, you don't need to go there," she laughs. "It doesn't need to be that. It doesn't need to be that yet."
Susan Kelechi Watson's character, Beth, serves as a strong and supportive partner to her onscreen husband, Randall, played by Sterling K. Brown. She reveals that Brown can cry at the drop of a hat.
"With Sterling," she says, "the way that he can emote when it comes to finding out about characters or (when) something's going to happen, it really moves through him in a very open and vulnerable way."
We'll let Metz break the cry-tie between two of America's most popular and emotive actors.
She claims the teary title for herself: "I could cry at everything."
