This Is Us is one of the most emotional shows to watch on TV at the moment, so I can only imagine what it's like to film it. Milo Ventimiglia sat down with Today to discuss the scenes that have been the most intense to shoot and the ones that make him cry — and yes, there are plenty. In honor of season three's premiere on Sept. 25, let's reminisce about some of the most tear-jerking moments, shall we?
In the video interview above, Ventimiglia shared that the unforgettable fire scene in the "Super Bowl Sunday" episode was the most intense to shoot because — fun fact — the cast and crew dealt with real fire. "It was controlled, it was safe, but instinctively I was putting myself in between crew members and kids and staring down a real fire," Ventimiglia explained.
As for three of the scenes that make him cry? When Randall says goodbye to Deja, when Kate has a miscarriage, and when Kevin hits rock bottom. There are far too many gut-wrenching scenes to count, but those three definitely stand out in our minds, too. See what else Ventimiglia had to say, and revisit those sad scenes, ahead.
