In the This Is Us episode, “A Philadelphia Story,” the Pearsons get dressed up for Kevin at his movie premiere. Kate (Chrissy Metz) and Toby (Chris Sullivan) invite Rebecca (Mandy Moore) and Miguel (John Huertas) over to carpool. But before they leave the house, Kate and Toby’s IVF efforts are accidentally revealed. The night before, Kevin (Justin Hartley) is cozy in bed with his sexy new girlfriend Zoe (who’s also Beth’s cousin). She’s trying to transcribe an interview (in French) for her documentary film about the world’s dwindling water supply. They have an awkward conversation about the status of their relationship. Kevin wanted to invite her to the premiere but she doesn’t want their “light” relationship get “serious.” Ouch.
This Is Us viewers first saw Zoe in the Season 2 finale, in a flash-forward scene. Zoe is portrayed by Melanie Liburd. The English-born actress is known for her roles on Netflix’s Gypsy with Naomi Watts and Billy Crudup (Alexis), Dark Matter (Nyx Harper), Game of Thrones (Street Red Priestess Meereen, see link above), and The Grinder (Ivy Dexter), among others. This Is Us airs Tuesdays at 9pm on NBC, right after The Voice.
