Lauren Graham Hasn’t Seen ‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life’
It is difficult to believe there is a Gilmore Girls lover left on the planet that has not seen A Year in the Life at this point, but there’s at least one. Lauren Graham (aka Lorelai Gilmore herself) has not seen the resurrection show yet, and there is a chance she never will.
In accordance with Entertainment Weekly, Graham opened up about not seeing the show in a 92nd Street Y speak with Michael Ausiello.
“There are lots of celebrities who learn a great deal by seeing themselves. I am not among the individuals, and so I stayed away from it,” Graham described.

But even though she does not feel like she gets much out of seeing her own performances in general, Graham also acknowledged that there is more to it when it comes to Gilmore Girls.
“I was thus on another airplane, it felt like, during the doing of the thing, and I ‘d some of the best moments I Have ever had as an actor so when an individual because encounter,” she said. “I would like to leave it there for now—that was enough. That was more than enough. It was the greatest experience I Have ever had.”
Her Gilmore hangups do not begin with seeing the Netflix resurrection though. Graham said she fought to even read the script for “Autumn,” the closing episode of A Year in the Life.
“I shot a couple scenes without having read the whole thing,” she declared. “I was on this wild high and feeling so grateful and so happy with exactly what the stuff was, I nearly did not need to understand how it finished. I used to be stressed what if I am disappointed and where it had been going. But eventually I needed to take action, ’cause that I wept from page one, and that I sat in the kitchen table and I truly had to film it all the approach to the ending. It was the largest mental encounter.”
