The Former Costars Speak So Highly Of One Another

Kelly Bishop and Lauren Graham aren’t the most active online, so fans don’t often know about their personal lives. But apparently, the women grew quite close during Gilmore Girls and kept their friendship alive off the set.

“Kelly Bishop is another example of what I’m talking about in that passage, of the gift of having friends who are not your peers,” Lauren once said about her costar, according to Us Weekly. “I have a friend, she’s 80 years old. We go to lunch, we talk about the same thing. There’s no difference.”

Kelly Bishop will release her own memoir, The Third Gilmore Girl, this September. More than likely, she will share her own favorite memories of Lauren Graham in the book.
