E! News aired this video about “A-listers who got their big break on Gilmore Girls” last night as part as their Nostalgia Week. Old interviews and behind the seen footage with the main cast (and Lauren) are included.
Patterson’s book series, which is comprised of seven books, centers on Rafe Khatchadorian’s tumultuous days as a student at Hills Village Middle School where he must use all of his wits to battle bullies, hormones and a tyrannical principal.
Lauren will play Rafe’s mother Jules. The movie, directed by Steve Carr, will start production later in the month in Atlanta and is set to arrive in theaters on October 7, 2016.
In a new interview with Brodie Lancaster for rookiemag.com, Lauren reminisces about the Gilmore Girls days and talks about the lasting legacy of the show:
BRODIE LANCASTER: What sold you on the role of Lorelai Gilmore?
LAUREN GRAHAM: It was many things. I was coming up in my career, and I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. I had started in comedy and theater, and I loved Saturday Night Live. I loved things with a sense of humor, but I was looking for something that had more depth. The only things that were out there [at that time] were medical shows and firemen shows. The only other kind of hybrid that had comedy and drama was Ally McBeal.
In life, nothing’s all funny or all dramatic—it’s both. I thought [Gilmore Girls] didn’t sound like anything else. I had never read anything like it. That dialogue and intelligence really jumped out at me. I felt like, “Ooh!” [It was] like when you see a great outfit in a store, and you’re like, “I’ve got to have it!”
At the time, I was 30, 31. All the advice [I was being given] was, “Don’t play a mom. That’s not a smart thing.” The network that the show was on [the WB] was just starting out, and TV was so different then. But, I didn’t care. It felt like what I had been looking for.
As actors we always say that once the person in a scene gets what they want, the scene is over. It’s resolved. But life is never resolved—you’re always in the process. I’m just trying to enjoy this place where I am. Things maybe haven’t happened for me in the traditional order, but I believe that if you continue to go for what you want and work on yourself, anything is possible.
