The family drama series, which ran from 2000 to 2007 starred Lauren Graham as Lorelei Gilmore, a single mother who’s raising her teenage daughter Rory, played by Alexis Bledel. Their relationship is unconventional, but their banters and exchanges, despite the show being a drama series, makes it more pleasant and light-hearted to watch. The series takes place in Stars Hollow, a picturesque but fictional suburban town, with a lot of interesting characters and townsfolk as well.
Aside from the two lead stars, in attendance during the festival were Amy Sherman-Palladino, the series creator, Kelly Bishop, who played Emily Gilmore, the grandmother, Scott Patterson, who played Luke, a neighbor who has always been in love with Lorelei, Keiki Agena, who played Lane, Rory’s best friend, Jared Padelecki, who played Dean, Rory’s very first boyfriend.
The cast paid tribute to Edward Herrman, who played Richard Gilmore, who died last year, as TV Line reported.
“Ed was the first one to say he was going to be at this panel, that’s how f — ed up it is that he’s gone. I just miss him, and I’m so grateful I got to work with him and hear him say my words and see him yell at me at dailies because I was making him do too many takes …” Sherman-Palladino said.
The actors also shared their experiences on the show and talked about how they got involved in it. They also shared what would’ve been the fate of the characters today, and everyone in the audience believes that Rory would have really ended with Jess, played by Milo Ventimiglia, who was also in the event.
Sherman-Palldino, meanwhile, confirmed that there will be no “Gilmore Girls” movie in the works at the moment.
“There’s no way I’m going to top this experience, this cast, these leading ladies here. … And that’s OK. Some people get lucky and some people don’t. And, God, I got so lucky,” she said.
