This Gilmore Girls Actor Played Two Different Characters and You Probably Had No Clue
Have you watched Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life yet? Or are you waiting for the perfect moment to indulge? Whether you’ve already binge-watched the entire six hours and are ready to enjoy it all over again or still have the pleasure awaiting you, there’s one very cool deet you’ll definitely want to watch out for: One Gilmore Girls actor actually played two different characters.
Did you notice? Or can you guess who it was? Not a main character, but still a beloved addition to the gang, we’re talking about actress Rose Abdoo who took on the role of Gypsy the mechanic…
AND Berta the maid…
This is both a very cool bit of trivia as well as an impressive professional deed, though Rose’s resumé is already pretty plump, with past parts on Pretty Little Liars, Veep, Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy, Parenthood, Shameless and many, many more.
Rose read it for fun in a table read because they hadn't cast it yet, and she was so hilarious they had to double her up! https://t.co/tnfAhHOZIp

Lorelai herself (or rather, actress Lauren Graham) confirmed the dual casting and explained the decision in a tweet saying, “Rose read it for fun in a table read because they hadn’t cast it yet, and she was so hilarious they had to double her up!” We can totally see that.
Now we have to go watch it again and see Rose in all of her glory.
