The Gilmore Girls

Lauren Graham Was Advised to Pass on 'Gilmore Girls' Role

Lauren Graham compares finding the perfect role to falling in love.

What she didn’t realize when she first secured the role of Lorelai Gilmore in “Gilmore Girls,” though, was how rare a connection like that was.

“Back then I probably thought, ‘Oh, I’ll probably have two or three of these that I feel this way about,'” she said in a conversation with Constance Zimmer during Variety’s “Actors on Actors” series. “Now I have a different perspective.”

The interview will air in its entirety on Variety’s “Actors on Actors” Season 6, presented by Shutterstock, which premieres June 13 on PBS SoCal.
