'This Is Us' star Faithe Herman reveals the advice her TV parents gave her on set.

For any actor, working opposite a Golden Globe and Emmy award-winner (Brown) may seem like an intimidating task, but newcomer Faithe is up for the challenge. And she definitely holds her own in a scene! 

She revealed to Distractify that during filming she'll ask her TV parents for a bit of acting advice. 

"Sometimes I’ll be worried if I mess up on a line or anything," Faithe told us. "But Mr. Sterling and Ms. Susan [Kelechi Watson] (Beth Pearson) would be like, ‘It’s okay to mess up because that’s how you learn and get through.'"

She added: "It makes me feel much better."

While the pint-size actor hopes to see her character "grow more" in future episodes of This Is Us, she's not about to give away any spoilers of what's to come for any member of the Pearson family. "It's actually easy," she told Distractify about not accidentally revealing This Is Us plot points. 

Faithe continued: "It wasn’t really hard for me. ... I’m good at keeping secrets and stuff."

Since being cast on the popular NBC drama, Faithe has already experienced her first taste of fame, including being recognized on the street by fans. "Sometimes when I’m out with my mom or my dad or my sisters, sometimes people say, ‘Hey you look like the girl from This Is Us," she told us. "It’s really nice to see that people watch me on the show and that they love the show and that it makes them cry and happy at the same time. It’s nice meeting everyone."

Well, with a huge network TV show and superhero film (Shazam!) already under her belt, we expect to see Faithe continuing to dominate the entertainment industry. 

Catch new episodes of This Is Us on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
