Susan Kelechi Watson Says This Actor Was the Biggest Pot-Stirrer on This Is Us

She spilled some (fun) tea about her co-stars on Watch What Happens Live

By Christopher Rosa

Susan Kelechi Watson appeared on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday, June 16, and spilled some fun tea about her This Is Us co-stars. In a rapid-fire game with Host Andy Cohen, Watson gave superlatives out to Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Milo Ventimiglia, Justin Hartley, and Chrissy Metz⁠—and they were too good. 

How to Watch

Watch This Is Us episodes on NBC.

See a recap of everything Watson said, below: 

Her bestie of the group: Sterling K. Brown. 

Who forgot their lines the most on set: "People were pretty good about lines, I 'gotta be honest." 

Who Watson texted the most when the cast was on hiatus: Chrissy Metz, Mandy Moore, and Sterling K. Brown. 

Who the most long-winded is of this group: "Justin tells a good story. I wouldn't call it long-winded, but he tells a good story." 

Who the biggest pot-stirrer is of the group: Sterling K. Brown. 

The person in this group most likely to pick up the bill at dinner: Mandy Moore and Justin Hartley. 

Who the first person would be to sign up for a This Is Us reboot: Justin Hartley, Mandy Moore, and Chrissy Metz. 

It remains unclear what "pot-stirrer" means, but our guess is that Brown was the biggest on-set prankster who liked to have a good time. And of course, we know that he and Watson had an ironclad bond while working together. "So much of what I do is with Sterling," Watson said in an NBC video. "A loving couple who's been together for a long time and also that is willing to do life at its deepest levels with one another. They're willing to do that together." 

And Brown added, “[Our working relationship is] special, and it has this really delicate balance to it. It’s always felt easy."
