Chrissy Metz is happier than ever!
The 36-year-old actress chatted with ET's Leanne Aguilera at NBC's summer Television Critics Association press tour about hoping to sing with Mandy Moore on This Is Us, as well as gushed about her "wonderful" boyfriend, Josh Stancil.
Metz and Stancil, who is a camera man, met on the set of This Is Us. The actress told ET that he's still working on the NBC drama and is "pretty wonderful."
"We see each other whenever I’m working," Metz shared. "He’s still texting me like, 'I hope you have a great day. I’ll see you soon.' He’s a little gem… It’s pretty wonderful."
The Emmy-nominated actress not only has a great offscreen relationship with Stancil, but her onscreen romance with Chris Sullivan's Toby Damon is nearly perfect. So what's in store for Kate and Toby in season two?
"They moved back to L.A. and moved in together and now she’s pursuing music," Metz revealed. "It’s one of those things where, you know, when you’re moving in together, and she’s starting a new career. It’s a lot of dynamics. A lot of things are going on so we’re going to see the ups and downs."
Earlier in the day, Metz's co-star, Mandy Moore, revealed that their characters might be having more singing opportunities in the near future.
"Yeah, I believe that they are," Metz revealed. "I believe that they are. Nothing is solidified, nothing confirmed, but I believe that they are."
The actress expressed her excitement over the possibility of being able to sing on the show, adding, "Come on! I can’t even imagine. Is it going to be original? Is it going to be a cover? Like, what’s gonna happen? I’m excited about it."
As far as what Metz hopes to be able to do on the series, she'd like to have a duet with her onscreen mom. "Honestly, just to sing with Mandy," said Metz. "Her voice is, like, so pure and just to sing with her would be wonderful."
