It’s no secret that Susan Kelechi Watson kills it as Beth on “This Is Us”, but the reason why may (or may not) surprise you. She’s an alumna of the illustrious Howard University … need we say more?
Watson attended The Mecca for undergrad and credits the university with teaching her how to “fight and be fierce about doing what I want to do and not letting there be a no.” If you are fortunate enough to know (or be) a HU alum, then her sentiments come as no surprise.
The seasoned thespian also credits the late Henriette Edmonds, a former chairwoman of Howard University’s department of theater arts, with pouring into her and encouraging her to pursue acting. “She was the first person to tell me I could act,” Susan told HH at the NBC TCAs on Thursday.
Watson will return as Beth when season two of “This Is Us” premieres on September 26, 2017.
