This Is Us is bringing back a fourth season recurring character in season five, per The Wrap. Austin Abrams was most recently seen on Dash & Lily (Netflix). During season four of the drama, Abrams played teen Kate’s boyfriend, Marc.
During his time on the series, Marc was verbally abusive to Kate (Hannah Zeile). In a previous interview, Zeile said the following about Kate’s troubles with Marc on the NBC series:
“I definitely think that when you’re being verbally abused and put down and not supported properly, like in the episode when Marc calls her a ‘fat face,’ I think a lot of the time people think that it’s because of their own doing, you know? They think, ‘Maybe if I was thinner and I was in better shape or I was prettier, he wouldn’t treat me like this.’ But it’s not true, it’s really their own issue. And I think that insecurity… Kate always had self-doubt and always had insecurity, and I think that Marc definitely fostered them.”
This Is Us returns to NBC with new episodes in January.
