Graham gives her verdict on the revived season in the collection of essays and reflections about the show.
Lauren Graham is to publish a book that recounts her experiences of starring in Gilmore Girls.
The show, which centres around the mother daughter relationship between Graham’s Lorelai Gilmore and Rory Gilmore (played by Alexis Bledel), was recently revived for a eighth season on Netflix.
In her book, Talking As Fast As I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls, Graham offers her thoughts on the original seasons as well as reflections on her career.
While Graham writes that the show gave her “an adrenaline-fueled dialogue high” during Season 1, she admits to struggling with the role by the final seasons.
Speaking about the book to USA Today, she compared filming the seventh season without creator Amy Sherman-Palladino to “when David Lee Roth was replaced as the lead singer of Van Halen.”
However, Graham added that she has found the reboot, which was released on Netflix last week, “incredibly satisfying”.
Elsewhere in the book, the actress discusses facing sexism and ageism in Hollywood, recalling having once been asked to take a “butt audition” for a play.
“I wanted to write about these things, but in a comedic way,” says Graham.
Gilmore Girls premiered in 2000 and came to an end in 2007. The rebooted season, Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life, features four new 90-minute episodes written and directed by Sherman-Palladino and starring most of the original cast.
