Hello Milo fans! Yesterday, Milo and his beautiful This Is Us co-star, Mandy Moore talked with Nellie Andreeva about This Is Us. I have added high quality photos of Milo during the green room, presentation panel, and some gorgeous shots in the photo studio to the gallery! Enjoy!

DEADLINE – Stars Milo Ventimiglia and Mandy Moore were among the This Is Us panelists Sunday at Deadline’s The Contenders Emmys event. The series focuses on three adult siblings and their parents, partly in flashbacks, jumping from character to character and between decades. From creator Dan Fogelman, breakout freshman series also stars Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz and Justin Hartley and got an early renewal, picked up for a second and third season in January.

Of course, a major part of making a show that spans many years using the same actors is the makeup. With the help of 12 prosthetic appliances, Moore, playing mom Rebecca Pearson, convincingly ages over a 40-year period.

“It was very important to have the makeup look realistic,” Head of Makeup Zoe Hay said during the panel. “You know, she’s a mom at home, she’s not going to look like a beauty ad in the ’80s.”

But that level of preparation can lead to grueling periods in the chair. “I like to help out with the hairdryer,” Moore said. “Otherwise I’m just sitting there for three to five hours.”

For Ventimiglia, as Rebecca’s husband Jack, facial hair was key to portraying different eras. “With Milo, we referred to beard-gate,” Hay joked. “We had a lot of dialogue about how we would transition him for each period. … We haven’t tried a trucker mustache yet!”

“It’s hard to find the materials these days to go back to the ’70s,” production designer Gary Frutkoff said. “You’ll find a high-end couch or chair, but Dan (Fogelman) from the beginning wanted a very blue-collar look to this family. … We’re always scouring Craigslist and prop houses.”

Frutkoff also said shooting in L.A. had its drawbacks — when depicting Thanksgiving in Pittsburgh, for example. “There’s a small digital budget for removing palm trees,” he said. “I’ve painted grass before. I’ve painted it green and I’ve painted it brown, but [L.A.’s] Griffith Park will not let you touch their grass, so you just have to live with it. When that episode airs, I’m usually at a bar somewhere.”

As for what we can look forward to in Season 2, Ventimiglia said: “There’s a lot happening for all of the Pearsons. Jack and Rebecca need to get their marriage on track because it’s crumbled and fractured.”

Added Moore: “I think some of the answers people are looking for will be at least satisfied and satiated at the beginning of next season.”

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – The last episode of This Is Us ended on a rather ominous note, as we watched a not-exactly-sober Jack hop in a car, apparently headed to Rebecca’s gig a few hours away to save his marriage. The final episode of This Is Us this season, titled “Moonshadow,” will show you the results of that ill-advised car ride. Will this be the event that sends him to the morgue? Milo Ventimiglia, the man who plays Jack, isn’t saying one way or another, but it sounds like he wants you to at least brace for that possibility when he tells EW: “People want to know what happens with Jack. This may be the time when they find out.”

Or this: “It’s almost like that drink is a bit of a truth serum and a relaxer to the way that he thinks, ‘I’m going to go get my wife back.’ And it’s a poor decision on his part that may lead to his death.”

Or definitely this: “Papa Pearson is very concerned for the audience right now.”

But the season finale — which was co-written by series creator Dan Fogelman and focuses primarily on the Pearson parents — also takes us deep into the past, specifically the year 1972, right before Jack meets Rebecca. “It’s an episode that goes beyond the Jack and Rebecca that we know,” says Ventimiglia.

Indeed, Jack returns from Vietnam and is having trouble making a living, and living at home with his parents. “That was a tough era for Vietnam vets — coming home from war, they weren’t welcomed with open arms,” says Ventimiglia. “A lot of them were spit on, and coming back troubled, having seen some pretty bad things. Even though it may appear that Jack was unscathed by it, I think there’s a deeper understanding to what Jack experienced that we may only see the surface of it and not know what lies beneath. He comes home from a war and ultimately, quietly, there’s a bit of a war at home. It’s no surprise that Jack has had a bad relationship with his father, and that continues.”

Rebecca (Mandy Moore), meanwhile, is pursuing a music career that hasn’t taken off, and she’s facing societal pressures to settle down with a husband. “All of her girlfriends are married, the eye on their prize is meeting marriage material, and Rebecca’s eye is on her music that isn’t quite going the way that she was hoping,” he says. “But at the same time that’s what she’s interested in and that’s where her focus lies…. It’s always about singing and being on a stage for her. “

Ventimiglia hints at a pair of scenes late in the episode that should have fans talking. “They change the game of what the show is,” says Ventimiglia. “They’re two incredibly impactful moments — one’s seeking conflict, and one’s seeking resolution. You may not completely disagree with the conflict, and you may not agree with the resolution, but they sit on complete opposite sides of one another.”

And how would he describe the overall vibe of the episode? “It’s definitely heartbreaking, but it has the Fogelman wink and a smile that will keep you thinking about what just happened. That’s been always the best part about – you can call them cliffhangers — with our show. There might have been only one, where you really have to know what happened, and that was: What happened to Toby? That was the one where you go, ‘Oh my god, I gotta wait four weeks? This is horrible! Screw you people!’ This one feels like it could potentially be a little more reflective. But I don’t think it diminishes the capacity of it in any way.”

Moonshadow” airs Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
