LYRIC ROSS BIOGRAPHY: EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW ON ‘THIS IS US’

Ross told uInterview that her favorite moment on set was when fellow cast mates surprised her with a birthday celebration during filming.

“I was working on my birthday last year and I had to do a scene where I was crying. To cry on my birthday, that’s not really what people want to do, but I had to get through it and during one of the takes, I heard all of these footsteps coming into the house that we were filming in and it was this big old happy birthday cake and everybody started singing happy birthday to me. That has to be one of my favorite moments,” Ross said with a smile.
