The Hollywood Reporter made a complete report on the Women in Entertainement‘s summit with new details about Lauren’s talk, especially about her current projects (#wemissher):
The actress said that because it remains challenging to find worthwhile roles for women of her own age, she hopes connecting with the incoming generation of creators will keep her in tune with the evolving landscape as she looks for a career second act similar to “Gilmore Girls” creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and her current triumphs with The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
“There aren’t more 50-year-old women on television than there were when I was growing up,” she said. “I understand much better where an Amy Sherman-Palladino is, and look how long it even took her to find her second big shot. She wasn’t not trying to get stories told during that time between the two shows…I think the best I can do from where I sit is to connect with younger people. That’s kind of what I’m trying to do.”
Graham’s also increasingly pursuing writing opportunities after recently crafting a novel and a memoir — she’s currently writing a screenplay adaptation for Warner Bros. and has TV pilots in the works — but that’s neither a means to create material for herself to act in nor a move away from performing. “It makes me really upset when people are like, ‘Oh you’re transitioning.’ I’m like, ‘No, I’m not. Why would I be transitioning?’ Because I can do these two things. They are two sides of the same coin.”
