Mandy Moore first won millions of hearts for her singing skills, but now the acting side of her has been winning millions of hearts around the world thanks to This is Us. Her skills and looks are so amazing that some people forget or don’t have the idea that she’s only 35 years old.
It’s not just the fans who have noticed her talent. Moore has even won Screen Actors Guild awards for her acting, and this year, she also got her first Emmy nomination for her character Rebecca. This is Us is famous for going back in time, and Moore is doing the same outside the show. She has started her music career again.
Rose to prominence
Moore first became famous 20 years ago with her debut single “Candy” and album So Real, that too when she was 15 years old. Her fame launched at about the same time as the craze for boys bands like NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys was soo high. Her song “I want to Be With You” became her biggest hit to this date.
She made her movie debut in 2011 opposite Anne Hathway in the movie The Princess Diaries. The next year she was part of Nicholas Sparks’ romantic film A Walk to Remember.
Although her music career started to decline, her acting career was achieving new heights with her earning strong critics reviews for her movie Saved. She always gave out her voice for Disney’s Tangled character Rapunzel.
As with time, Moore started to struggle to get movies and had to appear in few TV pilots that didn’t get her much success either. She was thinking of giving up when she got the script of This is Us. And now as they say rest is history, since then she has been riding high as Rebecca.
This is Us
Moore has been winning heart all over the internet because of her portrayal of the aging Rebecca. Users on the internet have been so impressed with her acting skill that they completely forget that she is just 35 in real life.
Back at singing
After rediscovering her acting career, Moore has now been working to revive her singing career. From the past 10 years, she hasn’t released a single album, one reason for that was her struggling marriage with her former husband, Ryan Adams, who she claims psychologically abusing her.
Present-day, she has married to Taylor Goldsmith of the band Dawes, who has been helping her in reviving her music career. She has also released two new songs I’d Rather Lose and When I Wasn’t watching. She is all set to release a new album, and she will start a music tour in 2020. Listeners will find that she had evolved considerably from her bubblegum voice 20 years ago. Now, she has a more adult contemporary voice.
Moore, in an interview, said on revving her singing career that she is getting back to music. It’s time. She has missed music a lot over the years. She further added she isn’t scared and now no more excuses.
