‘Gilmore Girls’ Creator Amy Sherman-Palladino Says Meeting Lauren Graham Changed Her Life
One of the reasons Gilmore Girls is so beloved is its on-screen relationships. But its off-screen relationships are pretty special, too, as evidenced by creator Amy Sherman-Palladino’s recent comments about her friendship with star Lauren Graham.
“Literally my life changed when she walked in the door because there was no Gilmore Girls ’til Lauren Graham existed, and you know that is a bond,” Sherman-Palladino recently gushed to Entertainment Tonight about the actress, who starred as Lorelai Gilmore.
Sherman-Palladino and Graham were on hand at the 2019 Producers Guild Awards, where Graham had just presented her friend with an award. “I don’t know what my life would be without you,” she added.
“Same,” Graham echoed back to Sherman-Palladino. “How many people can you say that about? That’s so bizarre. I’m just glad we continued to be friends and lucky to have each other.”
The women first worked together on the hit CW drama from 2000 until 2007, picking back up where they left off when the four-part Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life revival came to Netflix in November 2016. While Sherman-Palladino is currently tied up working on her latest hit show, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, the possibility of more Gilmore episodes isn’t totally off the table.
“We carved out a little niche for ourselves with Amazon [which airs Maisel], saying that if we ever want to do [more Gilmore Girls], if the girls and us get together and we have a concept that works, then we have the freedom to do it,” she said in an interview with RadioTimes in 2017. “But it’s definitely possible.”
Where she leads, we will follow.
