25 Things You Don’t Know About Me

This is Chrissy! Actress Chrissy Metz stole fans’ hearts while playing Kate Pearson on NBC’s This Is Us and now, she’s spilling all her behind-the-scenes secrets exclusively with Use Weekly.

“My advice to young actors is to study, watch everything, read and don’t forget to play. Be clear and intent with why you are pursuing the craft,” the Emmy Awards nominee, 41, exclusively reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly.

Metz notably wrapped a six-season run on the NBC drama earlier this year — but is already down to get the band back together for future projects.

“It would be a no-brainer for me,” the Florida native told Us Last month. “I do think that we could have, like, a reunion situation in maybe 10 years, because that would be really cool to see where every Pearson is.”

She added at the time: “I think it would be really cool, and possibilities are really endless because so many of the stories could have ripple effects throughout other families and other people. It would be really fun.”

You can also campaign for the future This Is Us Metz can be found keeping busy with many other interests, including hyping up former co-stars via social media.
