Interviews

What was your reaction when they pitched you that scene? And if you had it to boil it down to three letters, is it “WTF”?

Yeah, I think you could boil it down to those three letters. It is a bold and tricky storytelling move that only the writers’ room of This Is Us could handle. Any actor becomes concerned when the writing staff starts having them collapse over coffee tables, but I have faith in our creative team that they will tell the best version of the story that there is to tell.

Do you remember your conversation with [series creator] Dan Fogelman when he pitched to you?

Actually, when I first found out about was maybe five or six episodes ago, from a different director. Here’s what happened: I was improvising in another scene, and I made some joke about having a heart attack. And the director was like, “Uh, we can’t do that joke.” And I was like, “Okay — wait a minute, why can’t we do that joke?” [Laughs.] And he was like, “Uh, no, uh, never mind.” And I’m like, “No, you tell me why I can’t do that joke!” And so the cat was out of the bag.

When did you know about William’s sexuality?

I found out maybe two episodes before; [creator] Dan [Fogelman] pulled me aside at one of the cast readings and asked me how I felt about it. I didn’t quite know what was written at the time, but I thought it was a brilliant idea. I knew he would do it in such an intense and delicate way that I didn’t think about it much after that until I got the script. And then I just played it along with the way William is. I had maybe two episodes to put it in my psyche.

Will this be a later-in-life coming out storyline moving forward?

As far as I know. That’s the other question mark that my character has — they don’t give that away for me. I don’t know what’s going to happen in regards to his cancer and what’s going to happen with this. That’s the other thing I play as an actor. Every time I come on set, not only do I not know as a character but I don’t know as an actor, which helps me play the unknown as a character. Each time I go on, I play it as though it’s the last episode of my life. That’s the big question; at this point the character is becoming so beloved, no one wants him to die. But there’s also the idea, the way the show is written, there are so many stories in the flashbacks. So that’s an idea I can put out. Whatever you might think, the character could still survive based on flashbacks. Sort of like what they’re doing in the first story with Milo Ventimiglia and Mandy Moore.
