, best known for her role as Lorelai Gilmore on Gilmore Girls
, significantly contributed to the show’s success as a versatile actress, evident in her numerous awards and nominations over the past six years. But apart from her depiction of the highly talkative and flashy mother of Rory most people perceive her to be, she was able to positively transform herself as one of creative thinkers of the show.
In an interview with the Columbia Spectator, she expressed her sentiments on her evolution in Gilmore Girls
. She started out as an actress and then eventually evolved as one of the producers of the show. She said, “There are a lot of different ways to be a producer on a TV show, and they gave me that title to acknowledge that my role in the process had increased slightly. We’re now at a point in this show where the actors have been there the longest, and the whole process of how the show happens is of interest to me … you know, on a larger scale, where’s the story going, what’s going to happen, and just sort of just being in on that discussion a little earlier. As an actor, you just get a script, you don’t ever know what’s going to happen to your character, and by the time the script is written, you’re far along, and that’s pretty much what’s going to happen. I feel like this character is so familiar to me, and I have such affection for the whole of the show that I just wanted to know where I was headed this year. So they were nice to include me in that.”
