Oh you thought I was kidding that I was going to bring back Fan Art Fridays, DIDNT YOU.
It’s ok, I didnt believe me either…
BUT here I am :) It’s happening!
This Fan Art Friday is dedicated to: Lauren Graham.
Now, if you’ve met me before then you probably heard me mention Gilmore Girls, or at the very least I quoted or referenced it (even if you didn’t notice). There’s no easy way to explain exactly how I feel about this show, but let me use the show to help figure it out:
I was the same age/grade as Rory when the show first aired – we grew up together. And now I am the same age as Lorelai’s character when the show first started – and I can honestly say I love it, because I have always loved her character the most.
That being said, I didn’t know too much about the actress who played her (Lauren Graham) other than what I learned surrounding the show. Very recently I downloaded the audiofile for Lauren’s most recent book “Talking As Fast As I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls, and Everything in Between” . All i can say is that I am so glad I bought this book. Lauren is just as vibrant, weird, crazy and inspiring as my favorite character, if not more so because she is incredibly real. She talks to the reader/audience like we’re old friends, and she discusses her experience with Gilmore Girls in such a lovely way that it made me cry – several times.
That show got me through my twenties and the majority of my college and teenage years, and I am forever grateful for the writing and the characters who inspired me and helped me as I grew up.
Thank you Lauren Graham.
To further my point, my amazing team and I recently won first prize in Gilmore Girls Trivia
