Although every new series sets out to be the next big thing, very few are successful at capturing fans’ attention right from the beginning, but that certainly wasn’t a problem for This Is Us. Now the series is facing some high expectations and audiences are soaking up every bit of information about the show that they can get. With such a talented, fun-loving and amazing cast, it can only be assumed that it is one of the best sets to be on right now! So, dive behind the scenes of the hit drama with these 10 This Is Us behind the scenes secrets:

10. Aging Mandy Moore

Mandy Moore is actually the youngest out of the main cast and, despite playing their mother, she is actually eight years younger than Sterling K. Brown (Randall Pearson), seven years younger than Justin Hartley (Kevin Pearson) and three years younger than Chrissy Metz (Kate Pearson). After the casting there was some discussion on whether or not to hire different actresses to portray an older Rebecca Pearson but it was finally decided that it would be “ideal” if Moore could pull it all off. “At first I was really excited and selfie-ing it up,” Moore said of when she would get transformed into an older Rebecca. “Now, it’s like, ‘Here we go again!’ It takes about three and a half hours. It’s not an easy process. But I’m so grateful. Who gets to play a character from 27 to 66? I feel really lucky.”

9. The Title

Like so many shows, This Is Us went through a couple of title changes before one was decided upon. Before it was This Is Us, the show was actually called ’36’ “which is the age they’re all turning at the beginning,” Fogelman said. “I didn’t like it. I had done a series of movies where I had never titled them and no one can agree on the title. I threw 36 on it, and then I never liked it. Nobody ever liked it. I came up with This Is Us, I think, when I was in editorial. I decided I liked how it looked at the beginning [of the show], and I put it in there. But, there was a lot of debate over what the title of the show was gonna be.”
