The Gilmores and the Bravermans are colliding!
With the premiere of Netflix's Gilmore Girls revival just a few short weeks away, we're eagerly waiting to reunite with old friends, and welcome some new faces to Stars Hollow. Earlier this year, it was confirmed that Lauren Graham's on-screen daughter from Parenthood, Mae Whitman, will be making a special appearance at some point in the four-part episode event.
To help get you even more excited for this Braverman family reunion, we caught up with Graham to get the exclusive behind-the-scenes scoop on what it was like to have her two on-screen daughters together on the same show.
"It was wonderful!" the brunette beauty gushed to ET at the Television Critics Association summer press tour.
For those of you (like us!) who were hoping that Whitman would have a significant role in the Gilmore Girls revival, Graham was quick to reveal the truth. "Mae is in the show for about 40 seconds," she admitted with a laugh. "And she was extremely ill that day [we were shooting], so she was throwing up in between takes. Am I allowed to say that? Is that a spoiler?"
"No, cause it's behind-the-scenes stuff," Alexis Bledel assured her TV mom. Phew!
Spoilers aside, Graham was candid about the vibe on set during Whitman's short-but-sweet cameo "While it was joyous, it was not anybody's best, easiest workday," she said.
Gilmore Girls fun fact: This wasn't the first time that Graham's two TV daughters met. In 2015, Whitman and Bledel came face-to-face at Gilmore Girls' 15-year reunion celebration at the ATX Television Festival in Austin and they shared the hilarious daughter v. daughter moment.
"AT LONG LAST WE MEET #drawyourswords #breaktheinternet," Whitman captioned the Instagram photo of Graham caught between Amber Braverman (Whitman) and Rory Gilmore (Bledel).
Graham added that it was "great" to be able to welcome Whitman to Stars Hollow since the two have not acted side-by-side since Parenthood's series finale in 2015. "We live in a very small world," the 49-year-old actress said. "I'm so proud to know both of these women, and I love it when worlds collide. It's always funny and fun."
Gilmore Girls' four-part event premieres Friday, Nov. 25 on Netflix.
