Video: ‘Gilmore Girls’ Star Lauren Graham Revisits Her ‘Scariest’ Scene – Yahoo! TV

In Yahoo TV’s “My Scene to Remember” Emmy series, which spotlights performances and other contributions that they feel deserve recognition, Lauren revisited the scariest thing she had to do on “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life”: the pretzel scene 😢.

“It was the scariest thing I had to do,” she says, referring to the scene in “Fall” in which Lorelai makes a call to her mother, Emily (Kelly Bishop), while on her Wild trek in California. “It was one of the last things we did. It meant a lot to me personally, because it is a memory that Lorelai has of her father — who, in real life, had passed, and in the show, his absence was a very big presence.”

Interview: Lauren On Closure, Why ‘Gilmore Girls’ Got The Perfect Ending, and How She’s Writing The Next Chapter Of Her Life – Indiewire.com

In a new and lengthy interview with Indiewire.com, Lauren talked about the perfect experience of the “Gilmore Girls” return, the famous pretzel scene and what’s next for her:

Graham isn’t making any definitive declarations, but it couldn’t be clearer that she’s satisfied with this as a stopping point, and that she’s looking toward other challenges from here. And she doesn’t mean another TV show. “I kind of got what I wanted out of this,” she explained, “out of being an actor, and now I’m actually just as interested in helping somebody else have that, whether through directing or producing.”

More than anything, however, it’s writing that seems to be Graham’s main passion these days. “It takes longer but it gives me a satisfaction that is still very new and refreshing. What’s satisfying to me has changed, so now I like to be part of the creative process, not just get a script and go do it.” She and her “Parenthood” co-star Mae Whitman are currently adapting Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan’s book “The Royal We,” and Graham’s first novel “Someday, Someday, Maybe” became a bestseller when it was published in 2013.

“I look at the success of ‘A Year in the Life’ and what it did for Netflix, and what I write as a screenwriter is in that same vein of happy romantic comedies. I’m really devoted to that genre as something we need — hopeful, smart stories of having some love — and the idea that it’s just for girls is ridiculous. Nobody really makes romantic comedies anymore, and I don’t get why. I just don’t like watching zombies kill each other. I see how much the new ‘Gilmore Girls’ has meant to the people who loved it, and I feel even more strongly that I want to be a part of things like that.”

“Curb Your Enthusiasm”: Lauren Teases her Role – TVLine.com

While talking Gilmore Girls and Linda from HR with Michael Ausiello for TVLine’s about-to-launch podcast, Lauren revealed some details about her recurring role in the upcoming season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm“:

“It was fantastic,” Graham shares, adding that she worked with series creator and star Larry David “almost exclusively” during her multi-episode arc. “There really is no greater joy than actually making Larry David laugh. And he really laughs hard.”

On Curb, which is slated to return this fall after a six-year-hiatus, the Bad Santa actress plays “someone who has very colorful language,” Graham teases. It was her first gig after wrapping Netflix’s Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life and, as she explains, “It was the perfect answer to ‘What do I do now?!’ because this character is completely not me at all. I speak in a way that I don’t speak ever.” (Given the legendary veil of secrecy that surrounds the HBO comedy, Graham is reticent to divulge much more than that.)
