Mandy Moore is spotted getting into character with a short haircut and glasses as the older Rebecca on set of her series This Is Us

Mandy Moore has many hats for her role as Rebecca on the Emmy award winning series, This Is Us.

And on Thursday it was no different, the 35-year-old actress was spotted on set after getting into character as the 'older Rebecca' ahead of filming in downtown Los Angeles for the show.  

She is often seen bouncing back and forth between past Rebecca, present, and future and often admits that the hair and makeup process for her character's future appearance takes hours.

For her day on set, she wore the iconic Rebecca Pearson haircut with her short brunette hair clipped just above her shoulders.

The former teen star had on a burnt orange button up and matching cardigan paired with a pair of chic black plaid cropped pants.

And to match, she wore a pair of orange loafers as she carried her black purse and phone.

But when she isn't playing the iconic role, she's been putting her head down and working on her new album.

Fresh off releasing her first single in 10 years, When I Wasn't Watching, she says her new album is soon to follow.

'I am nearly done with a record and I've released two singles already,' she revealed while on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

'10 years ago you had a compact disc. I don't even have one in my car anymore. I don't know how you play a CD,' she said about the changing industry. 

'The music landscape has changed exponentially since I last released music. And since I started, it's a completely different world.'  

But her new album isn't coming out without a collaboration with her new husband Taylor Goldsmith.

'We've written the whole record together. He's playing all on the album. We're going to go on tour together. It's pretty cute,' she said of the Dawes musician.

Mandy doesn't just boast about her real-life husband, but her on-screen husband Milo Ventimiglia, 42, also gets some credit from the actress.

Recently, the Gilmore Girls alum made his This Is Us directorial debut.

'I'm a very proud friend,' she revealed to ET. 'It was one of the best of our entire series, and I think that was pretty universal. 'I feel like the entire internet would agree with that sentiment.'
