But of course, so many people also know and love him as Rory Gilmore's boyfriend, Logan, so *naturally* questions about Gilmore Girls came up.

Someone asked about Logan's famous proposal to Rory at the end of Season 7.

"What did you think/how did you feel about how your character was written out of the show? Do you think Logan would have come back if the show had continued?"

Since GG was one of his first major roles, “there was always a perpetual excitement that will always stay with” him.
