Cute Alert: An Update on Lauren and Mae’s Friendship

If you’re wondering if Lauren and Mae are still BFF in 2018, the answer is YES (if you had any doubts 😉). Mae, who is currently on a promo tour for her new NBC show Good Girls, answered the question a couple of times during the last days and it’s super cute.

First, during an interview for the Build Series, when an audience’s member directly asked her the question:

Then, she mentionned her “best friend in the world” while talking to Seth Meyers about the making of her Hamilton Challenge with Lauren and seeing Hamilton for the first time:

Here’s Lauren and Mae’s Hamilton Challenge in cas you had missed it:

She also talked about their friendship with The Lily:

TL: What’s it like playing a TV mom? Does previously being a child actor help you in your relationship with your TV kid?
MW: Playing a TV mom is very amazing, strange and sentimentally wonderful. I’m so used to sitting in the passenger seat of a car looking up at a TV mom, and now I’m sitting in that seat with this wonderful child [Izzy Stannard]. … So I do definitely feel like I have a leg up as far as knowing what it feels like to be in that place. I’ve had such amazing TV parents, including Lauren Graham [from “Parenthood”]. She’s someone I take a lot from. She’s always been such a mother figure to me. I take all of her advice blindly and I tell her everything. She’s also my best friend and our relationship has really flowered. I have the same kind of connection with Izzy, so I’m excited for him to be in my life.

TL: Can you tell us more about your friendship with Lauren Graham? Does she normally send Spanx to your hotel room, like we saw in one of your Instagram posts?
MW: It’s true, she did send Spanx to my hotel room once. Not only that, she sent me a dress because I’m completely inept at being able to dress myself in the mornings, frankly. Lauren is literally someone whom I’ve had write break-up texts for me. She is an all-purpose, amazing resource that is this magical treat. She’s always there for me and it’s so hard to be away from her, but the fact that I get to have her in my life forever is something I’ll be thankful for the rest of my life.

Lauren to Lend Her Voice to PBS’ THE GREAT AMERICAN READ

PBS revealed last week that Lauren will be among key authors, celebrities and notable figures in the entertainment, sports, news and literary worlds who will lend their voices and passion to THE GREAT AMERICAN READ, an eight-part television competition that celebrates books!

THE GREAT AMERICAN READ, a new eight-part television competition and nationwide campaign created in partnership with the production company Nutopia, explores the power of books and the joy of reading through the lens of America’s 100 best-loved novels, as voted on by the public.

THE GREAT AMERICAN READ launches with a two-hour special event on Tuesday, May 22, 2018, at 8 p.m. on PBS stations. Over the course of 15 weeks in the summer, viewers can read and vote on favorite works of fiction; the series then returns in the fall with additional episodes exploring the nominated books through themes including “Heroes,” “Villains & Monsters,” “Who Am I?,” “What We Do for Love,” “Other Worlds,” and will conclude with an exciting finale and countdown to “America’s Best-Loved Book.” The full list of 100 titles, chosen from a demographically representative national survey conducted by YouGov, will be made available to the public prior to the launch episode in May.

Lauren to appear on “The Marvelous Mrs Maisel”?

In a interview with The Telegraph to talk about the (well-deserved) Golden Globes wins for The Marvelous Mrs Maisel (streaming on Amazon Prime), Amy Sherman-Palladino revealed it’s likely that Lauren will appear on the show!

Here’s what she has to say about it:

There has, they say, been “literally no discussion” about doing a series based around Rory’s pregnancy, which is where the last episode ended. It is likely, however, that a Gilmore Girls star will appear in a future episode of Mrs Maisel.

“I’m talking to Lauren [Graham]. We’re crafting her character… She wants something very specific,” says Sherman-Palladino. It’s news that hadn’t even reached Brosnahan, who happens to be a big Gilmore Girls fan and whose response – “Stop it. What? Amy has not said this to me! That’s amazing!” – likely sums up that of all other fans out there. Roll on season two.

Lauren has already talked about a possible appearance on Amy and Daniel Palladino’s new show during an interview with The Los Angeles Times in May 2017. To watch what she had to say at the time just click “Play”, the video will magically start at the right time 😉

The Marvelous Mrs Maisel is available on Amazon Prime and the pilot is streaming for free on Youtube.


Following a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, in which Amy said again how much she’d like to have Lauren on the show, Lauren gave an answer about a possible appearance on “The Marvelous Mrs Maisel” via Twitter:
