‘This Is Us’ shocked viewers when Sophie was introduced in episode 13, ‘Three Sentences.’ Toby [Chris Sullivan] and Kevin had a deep heart-to-heart talk about love. Should Kevin choose Sloane [Milana Vayntrub] or Olivia [Janet Montgomery]? Toby’s advice? Choose the woman you can with whom you can imagine spending the rest of your life.
Kevin showed up on Sophie’s doorstep begging her for a second chance. ‘This Is Us’ fans discovered the couple had divorced 12 years before. Kevin and Sophie are both 36, which means they married young, most likely right out of high school.
‘This Is Us’ returns on Tuesday, February 7 with ‘I Call Marriage.’ The synopsis for the episode 14 reveals that Kevin will explore romantic past. It isn’t clear if writers will bring back 10-year old Kevin [Parker Bates] and Sophie [Sophia Coto].
Amanda Leighton will come in as a guest-star and help Kevin and Sophie’s love story unfold. Information about the actress’s role on the highly-acclaimed dramedy has been kept a secret. Kevin and Sophie’s relationship goes back more than 25 years and the best guess is that Leighton will portray Sophie in her late teens to early 20s.
The surprise news of Leighton’s ‘This Is Us’ role as a teenage to 20-something Sophie caught ‘The Fosters’ fans off-guard. Leighton portrays Emma on the Freeform drama – its winter season premiered on January 31.
It doesn’t appear at this time that Amanda Leighton is leaving ‘The Fosters’ for ‘This Is Us.’ According to the actress’s IMDb page she will appear through episode 20 which currently has no official airdate. For now, Amanda Leighton will pull double duty as the trouble-making Amanda on ‘The Fosters’ and Kevin Pearson’s first, and possibly only love, on ‘This Is Us.’
