Who Plays Veronica's Mom in Sierra Burgess? This Is Us Fans Will Know Her Instantly
There's a lot going on in Sierra Burgess Is a Loser — stolen identities, fake love triangles, bullies, self-confidence issues, the revelation that star Shannon Purser has a gorgeous voice . . . the list goes on. Because of all that, you might not have realized that one of your favorite actors from This Is Us actually pops up in the Netflix rom-com in a few brief (and cringey) scenes: Chrissy Metz!
She appears as Veronica's demanding mother, Trish, who's fond of '80s-style tracksuits, bright blue eye shadow, making up stories about her ex-husband, and screaming at and/or demeaning her three daughters (yeah, she's a real treat). The role differs wildly from the lovable Kate Pearson, so it's interesting to see Metz really sink her teeth into the prickly character. If you're not a This Is Us fan, however, keep reading to see where else you've seen the actress over the years!
