Creator Amy Sherman-Palladino said, “The central relationship in “Gilmore Girls” of course is between Rory and her mother Lorelai (Lauren Graham), who was only 16 when she gave birth to Rory.Because of their closeness in age, their connection has been far closer than the usual mother and daughter.“It was fun to play with Rory and Lorelai, who we always saw as best friends first and mother and daughter second,” said Sherman-Palladino. The show's casting director just dropped a massive bombshell about Rory / Alexis Bledel and her on-screen love interests.We knew Alexis dated Milo Ventimiglia for three year and a half years until 2006 - the chemistry between the two was so palpable it had to be real. The casting director Mara Casey let it slip in a recent interview with Life & Style.“She started her career in journalism at a time when the industry was changing quite a bit.Newspapers were going away and she has kind of been chasing stories and crashing on people’s couches in the process. She’s been traveling a lot.”It remains to be seen if Rory is content with not having a home base or a proper place for her undies, but returning to Stars Hollow certainly makes her reflect on where she wants to go, especially after the death of her grandfather, Richard Gilmore (Edward Herrmann).
They're both in the same place at the same time in this particular story, so it's a mutual relationship that they're carrying on." "It did surprise me," the 35-year-old actress confessed of the couple's infidelities.
I’m interested in her life but I maybe take a little bit more of a step back.
I think we have slight[ly] more separate journeys because she’s older and doesn’t need me in the same way.
At this point, "Gilmore Girls" fans are counting down the days until the beloved series hits Netflix.
Sadly, we still have half the month of September left.
