I’m so happy we’re going to learn Beth’s backstory. Phylicia Rashad is definitely an excellent choice for this role. I remember her stint on One Life to Live and was sorry when she left. She probably wasn’t too sorry to go since she went to The Cosby Show. Can’t wait for the return of This Is Us.

Excellent choice and I certainly love the name they gave her.
