The Gilmore Girls revival is officially happening!
Which also means that Emily Gilmore, played by the great Kelly Bishop, is returning into our lives.
In an exclusive interview with TV Line, Bishop spoke about her return to the fictional world of Stars Hollow. "I was 20 pages in [to the table read] and I was like, ‘Ahh… I’m back in Gilmore Land,'" she said. "I’m here. It never went away.'”
She also talked about how filming the show will be different without the late Edward Herrmann, who played the role of her husband, Richard Gilmore.
"It's going to be very hard doing it without him, because he and I were buds on the show. We, obviously, were older [than the rest of the cast]. But we were also New York actors, and we connected very well. We always did our crossword puzzles together in the hair-and-makeup room. That was one of our little routines. There was a comfort level…. [Sighs] It's going to be hard without him."
