On Thursday, December 1, Lauren Graham was interviewed by TVLine’s journalist Michael Ausiello at 92nd St. Y in New York. The main topic of the conversation was her memoir “Talking As Fast As I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls (And Everything in Between)”, but of course the Gilmore Girls revival was discussed, as well as her time doing Parenthood.
Lauren shared her thoughts on coming back to do Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life, claiming it was one of the best experiences of her life and confessing she was so overwhelmed on the first day back on the set that she would have to hold onto Alexis Bledel to guide her. She also mentioned that she cried when reading the script for Fall because it reminded her of Edward Herrmann (who past away in 2014) because he would have loved to come back to the show.
She also compared the experience of doing Gilmore Girls, where all the scenes are strictly choreographed and the lines can’t be changed, to Parenthood, where she had more freedom to change some lines if she didn’t get them right. Lauren said she enjoyed and learned from both experiences.
You can see more highlights of the interview here. Everybody in the audience would get a signed copy of the book on their way in and it’s also been distributed in subways in New York by the organization Books On The Subway.
Lauren Graham’s last engagement in New York was this Friday at Barnes & Noble on Union Square, where she talked again about the book and took pictures with the fans.
