Gilmore Girls Legacy

Kelly Bishop played Emily Gilmore, the mother of Lorelai Gilmore, portrayed by Lauren Graham, on the WB TV series. Gilmore Girls originally aired from 2000 to 2007, and Netflix released a revival miniseries in 2016.

The series also featured Alexis Bledel as Rory Gilmore, the youngest Gilmore girl, who navigated complex relationships with characters Dean Forester (Jared Padalecki), Jess Mariano (Milo Ventimiglia), and Logan Huntzberger (Matt Czuchry) in the fictional town of Stars Hollow, Connecticut.

Graham and Bishop’s Friendship

Lauren Graham praised her longstanding friendship with Kelly Bishop at a promotional event for her second memoir, “Have I Told You This Already?: Stories I Don’t Want to Forget to Remember,” in May. Graham remarked on the significance of having friends from different age groups, saying, “I have a friend, she’s 80 years old. We go to lunch, we talk about the same thing. There’s no difference.” Bishop will publish her memoir, “The Third Gilmore Girl,” in September.

Additional Cast Members

The show’s cast also included notable actors such as Sean Gunn, Melissa McCarthy, Scott Patterson, Liza Weil, Keiko Agena, Yanic Truesdale, and Edward Herrmann.
