THISISUS STARS REVEAL MORE ABOUT JACK’S DEATH
The Season 2 premiere of This Is Us answered the basic question of how Jack Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia) dies — spoiler alert: in a fire — but the details haven’t been filled in yet. At least not for the audience. “We knew the whole story back before we started shooting the second episode our first season,” Mandy Moore, 33, who plays Jack’s wife, Rebecca, told Life & Style at a Sept. 26 premiere party in LA. “We know the whole extenuating circumstances around the day and around his passing.” Mandy says there are clues fans can look for: “Kate was holding a dog, Randall had a girlfriend, Kevin had a broken leg,” she teases. Sterling K. Brown, 41, who plays Randall, promises, “You’ll get the totality of how Jack passed away before the season is over.” Adds Chrissy Metz, 37, who plays Kate, “You will get to see [why] everyone feels responsible.”
How Jack (Milo, 40, here with Mandy) died was shrouded in secrecy. “We waited until the last minute to shoot that,” Mandy says.
