Gilmore Girls star David Sutcliffe accidentally revealed a big spoiler about Rory Gilmore’s love life!
The Canadian actor is reprising his role as Rory’s dad, Christopher, in the upcoming Netflix revival, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, a series of four 90-minute movies that will each focus on a different season.
When asked who Rory should end up with in a recent interview with USA Today, Sutcliffe admitted, “I’m not even sure where she’s at, but I’m partial to… Dean.”
He seems to know something about where she’s at, though. “I liked all the young actors that played her boyfriends,” he added. “I know they’re not going to end up together, but Rory and Dean seem like a good couple.”
It’s not all bad news for Team Dean, however!
Jared Padalecki, who played the Stars Hollow favorite, is reprising his role in the series, as are Rory’s other exes, Milo Ventimiglia (Jess) and Matt Czuchry (Logan). When the series ended after seven seasons in 2007, Logan saw his marriage proposal rejected by Rory.
Netflix has yet to reveal an air date for the highly-anticipated reboot, but Sutcliffe assures fans it will be worth the wait.
“The scripts were incredible,” the 47-year-old actor said in the interview. “There was something about coming back seven years later, everyone’s older and a little wiser. And maybe some of the anxiety that exists when you’re trying to put out a weekly show isn’t there anymore.”
“In the beginning, we were all still trying to find our way,” he continued. “This time, there was a lightness on the set, and it made more space for us just to create and it really comes through. I’m looking forward to seeing the finished product, and I’m confident the fans are going love it.”
Czuchry recently told ET that he was also blown away by the new scripts. See what else the hunky actor had to say about the revival in the video below.
