PEOPLE.COM: While This Is Us has been busy changing our lives and making us weep, it’s been doing the same for its cast members.

“[The show] has changed my life in every way,” Mandy Moore tells says in PEOPLE’s special edition, The Complete Guide to This Is Us. “It’s given me purpose.”

Moore, 34, plays Rebecca Pearson alongside on-screen husband Milo Ventimiglia (Jack Pearson). The TV mom-of-three recently revealed she knows how the show will end.

“I think the ending will be very satisfying for people,” Moore said on Jimmy Kimmel Live after telling host Jimmy Kimmel that creator Dan Fogelman told her how the hit NBC series will conclude.

Though she couldn’t go into any more detail than that, Moore did speak to PEOPLE about the upcoming season, which premieres Sept. 25 on NBC.

In the wake of the loss of Jack, “we see the kids are just about to go off to college,” Moore shares.

“I’m looking forward to watching [Rebecca] sort of reconcile how she’s going to be able to step up to the plate,” she says. “I think she really just regards Jack as the golden parent and the superhero, so I’m curious to see what life is like as a single mom, and be a parent to these kids after this tragedy.”

Playing Rebecca has given Moore the opportunity to “grow and stretch as a human and as an actor” in ways she hadn’t expected, but was hoping for.

“I have an outlet for what’s in my heart, what’s in my mind,” she says. “I have an outlet for all of that now because of the show.”

Find out what’s next for the Pearson family in PEOPLE’s new special issue, The Complete Guide to This Is Us, which includes new interviews with the cast and creators and exclusive photos. Available on Amazon and wherever magazines are sold.

This Is Us season 3 kicks off on Sept. 25 on NBC. If you need to catch up, season 2 will be available on DVD on Sept. 11.

EW.COM: If the secret lives of video game characters were explored in 2012’s Wreck-It Ralph, November’s animated sequel Ralph Breaks the Internet — which hotwires arcade heroes Ralph and Vanellope onto the web in search of a replacement game part — reveals the surprising furtive life of another group: Disney’s iconic princesses.

Fourteen of Disney’s most famous regal women — who are ubiquitous on our real Internet but worshipped even more on the Internet imagined by Ralph’s filmmakers — meet Vanellope when the little racer encounters the ladies on a fan site. After discovering that she, too, is technically royalty, Vanellope and the princesses strike up a friendship, but to say that the discoveries stop there is a wreck of an understatement. Because of Vanellope’s laid-back influence, the princesses are serving up 14 brand new looks, previewed for the first time right here.

“I’m very proud of my character being a Disney princess with a human waist. I love that she is a princess but wears, like, a hoodie, and she inspires them all to wear comfortable clothes,” says Sarah Silverman, reprising her 2012 voice role as Vanellope von Schweetz, who in the final moments of Wreck-It Ralph learned she wasn’t a glitch but, in fact, the de-programmed monarch of the racing game, Sugar Rush. “It didn’t really cross my mind that I’m a Disney princess — like, that I’m canon— until we all met this year, and I got a little choked up. It’s corny, I know, but I was like, ‘Oh s—t, right. I’m this Jewish, comfortable-clothes-wearing Disney princess. How cool is that?”

Inspired by Vanellope, the princesses’ loungewear looks bear custom-tailored designs for each individual’s well-trod journey, with imagery like poison apples and fancy carriages and Etsy-ready slogans like “Just Let It Go,” “Beast Friends Forever,” and “Blue Corn Moon” (from the most venerable House of Pocahontas).

Co-director Phil Johnston (who co-wrote both Ralph films with Jennifer Lee and Pamela Ribon, respectively and sequentially) says the princess’ inclusion is a novel extension of what the first movie achieved. “It’s what Wreck-It Ralph was about: What happens when the arcade is closed and how do these characters behave when no one’s looking? And it’s very similar to what happens when you’re backstage in the princesses’ dressing room. What do they do? What do they look like? What do they talk about?”

Perhaps better to ask, what don’t they talk about? There must be more than their provincial lives, and the film’s showstopping sequences poke unprecedented, meta (and studio-approved) fun at the characters’ long history. Silverman notes, “The princesses and Vanellope learn a lot from each other, but what happens in that discussion is acknowledging the… I don’t want to say just blatant sexism, but the kind of dated, antiquated idea of princesses and bringing it up to a feminist — meaning equal — code.”

PEOPLE.COM: Mandy Moore does not consider herself a fashion muse, but the multi-hyphenate star has been influencing fans with her style choices since the early aughts. (Never forget her pop star days!) Fast forward to 2018, and Moore’s sitting front row at Paris Couture Fashion Week and commanding the red carpet as she promotes her hit, Emmy-nominated show This Is Us. The 34-year-old isn’t only having a moment, she’s in the middle of a Moorenaissance and shows no signs of slowing down.

Her latest gig? Teaming up with Fossil as one of their new celebrity ambassadors alongside Riverdale‘s KJ Apa.

Moore’s sleek, low-key approach to accessorizing and love for the Fossil brand made her partnership with the company a no-brainer. “I was really honored that they wanted me to join the family. They are such an iconic brand and I really love the messaging behind a lot of their campaigns — especially this one in particular, which is really about celebrating creativity, authenticity, and optimism,” she tells PEOPLE exclusively, adding, “I kind of feel like it’s very much in mind with my personality and style.”

While she loves the polished vibe a watch gives any outfit, Moore confesses that she’s not a huge jewelry person.

“It’s funny because I obviously love jewelry, and I have a job that lets me wear a lot it, but in my down time, I wear a little bit,” the star says.

She also never considered herself to be an engagement ring kind of girl, until Dawes frontman Taylor Goldsmith proposed to the This Is Us actress with a custom Irene Neuwirth ring.

“I would say my most meaningful piece [of jewelry] is my engagement ring. That’s something that I try to wear every day. I don’t wear it to work or anything obviously, but it’s something I never really thought that I would want,” Moore tells PEOPLE.

Goldsmith and Neuwirth customized the ring featuring a gorgeous, round flat diamond on a rose gold band.

“My fiancé kind of ignored my, ‘Oh it’s fine. I don’t really need anything; we can just get married and have wedding bands. I don’t need an engagement ring.’ He kindly ignored me and went out and made this gorgeous ring that I just felt was indicative of my style and it’s all very much in mind with who I am and how I try to carry myself in the world,” she shared. “It wasn’t like this ostentatious giant jewelry, it’s something that has a lot of meaning and I love it.”

PEOPLE.COM: s among the select few who know exactly how This Is Us will end.

Though the actress, 34, could not disclose any details from the forthcoming series finale, she did reveal that fans will, like always, need tissues.

“I think the ending will be very satisfying for people,” Moore said on Tuesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live after telling host Jimmy Kimmel that creator Dan Fogelman told her how the hit NBC series will ultimately come to a close.

“I think it’s very true to what the show evokes from all of us. People will feel their feelings,” she said.

In fact, Moore revealed that the cast has already filmed some scenes for the series finale.

“There’s no predetermined end date, but … I think [Fogelman] has an idea in his mind of when he sort of sees the story ending and he knows how it ends, which makes me feel good as an actor and as a viewer. He knows where the story is heading,” The Darkest Minds star shared.

“I think just the nature of our show and the trajectory is that … you know, people are certain ages now, and perhaps they’re just going to keep getting older. So [we are] capturing content in the can now,” Moore added.

She and on-screen husband Milo Ventimiglia, as well as TV son Sterling K. Brown, began shooting season 3 just a couple of weeks ago.

Earlier this month, Fogelman, who co-wrote the premiere’s script with showrunners Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, shared a photo of the first scene that was shot in the Pearson kitchen.

Days later, he and the cast celebrated the show’s five Emmy Award nominations, including best drama series.

Like Moore, Brown, 42, previously gave props to Fogelman for being the creative force behind This Is Us.

“Fogelman has a very keen understanding of what the beginning, middle, and end of our show is, and that’s important because he often likens our show to Lost in terms of its structure,” he told Entertainment Weekly in April.

Season 3 of This Is Us premieres Sept. 25 on NBC.

June 03, 2018 News - This Is Us

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: No, This Is Us isn’t ending any time soon — see: the ratings — but it’s never too early to talk about the end of the NBC family drama.

At a For Your Emmy consideration panel held at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles on Tuesday, creator Dan Fogelman dropped an intriguing hint about the show’s very last episode. Asked by moderator Debra Birnbaum how far out the writers have mapped the show, Fogelman answered, “We’re pretty far along. Our writers and I are kind of to the end. We have a path for each season of the show. We’ve always had a plan… I don’t think this show will ever — despite any success it may or may not have — will ever overstay its welcome, and we have a story to tell. And we want to do this the right way. And so we have a plan.”

He added: “I’ve actually already shot pieces of the final scene in the series.”

Fogelman also shared that the show will drill down on Toby (Chris Sullivan), who was seen suffering from depression in a season 2 finale flash-forward, and do a “deep dive” on the back story of Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson), Randall’s wife who currently has her hands full with foster child Deja (Lyric Ross). Both will get “showcase” episodes, and, as he warned, “You’re going to be surprised what Toby and Beth were like before they entered this family.”

Surprised is also the word that Fogelman used when discussing the “Who is ‘Her’?’ mystery that was introduced in a different season 2 finale flash-forward with Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and adult Tess (Iantha Richardson). “Our plan right now is that big questions will be answered in the course of the season,” he said. ” I think people are going to be surprised with how we use that timeline.”

ETONLINE.COM Mandy Moore is giving fans a peek into her personal life.

Rocking a bombshell blowout and a pretty pink lip, the This Is Us star is a vision on the cover of NewBeauty’s spring issue. Inside the mag, she shares her best diet and beauty tricks, reveals her biggest guilty pleasures and talks babies.

On set of the popular NBC series, in which she plays both young and older versions of the beloved Rebecca Pearson, Moore is constantly in makeup. So when she’s not filming, she tells the outlet there’s a few things she does in order to maintain her seemingly flawless skin. “My skin is super sensitive, and having to wear makeup every day, especially the old-age makeup on the show, is really hard,” she shares. “I try to get a lot of sleep, drink water and wear sunscreen — all the cardinal rules of skin care. I’m not a particularly big drinker, so that helps because I don’t have to contend with completely dehydrating my skin.”

“Beyond that, I guess I have my mom and dad to thank,” she adds. “However, that’s not to say I don’t have breakouts like everybody else. I’ve gone through patches where my skin was just completely awful. But when I feel like I’m taking care of myself, it’s evident in my skin.”

PEOPLE.COM: Most actors would want to take a relaxing vacation during their break between filming seasons of their hit TV show.

Mandy Moore? She climbed Mount Kilimanjaro.

The 33-year-old This Is Us star summited the highest mountain in Africa this month, traveling on the adventure alongside a group of her closest friends including fiancé Taylor Goldsmith.

For Moore, the trip was a dream 15 years in the making.

“I have dreamed the dream of climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro since the age of 18,” Moore wrote on Instagram Friday. “Thanks to @eddiebauer, my partner in this adventure, this past week saw #1 on my bucket list come to fruition and I lived out one of the most rewarding and challenging experiences of my life with a few of my best friends.”

She had previously posted a photo of her crew on March 23, the day hike took off.

According to Travel + Leisure, it takes at least a week to complete a hike to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro — which, at 19,341 feet, is the world’s tallest freestanding mountain. With “the mountain itself hosting five different vegetation zones,” the journey to the top means climbers will encounter temperatures “varying from hot to freezing” and terrain varying from lush forests to dry deserts.

Moore shared a series of Instagram Stories from the hike as well on Friday, explaining that they had often hiked for 9 hours before stopping at camp.

Still, it was hard to wipe the smile off her face throughout her journey.

Last year, Moore told Shape Magazine she hoped to scale the mountain on her and Goldsmith’s honeymoon.

“I do want to climb Mount Kilimanjaro,” Moore said. “That’s a bucket list item, maybe on the next hiatus; I’ve already told Taylor that I may incorporate it into the honeymoon,” she added.

And though the couple — who have been dating for over two years — haven’t yet walked down the aisle, the experience appeared to bring them even closer.

“This crew, 4 ever,” she labelled a photo of the two of them with their friends.
