The Hollywood Reporter did an article on some of TV’s top actresses such as Caitriona Balfe, Christine Baranski, Kathy Bates, Linda Cardellini, Edie Falco, Vera Farmiga, Sutton Foster, and more. They included Lauren and here is the feature on her:

THR asked: When were you the most panicked as an actress this season and how did you overcome those fears?

Lauren Graham
Parenthood (NBC)
“The first thing that comes to mind is Mae Whitman’s character gave birth, and we had about 20 minutes to do it because of restrictions that had to do with the baby and the abandoned hospital we were shooting in. That was a panicky moment technically. But to me the biggest challenge was restraint, and that’s something I learned over time on Parenthood. Especially after people crying — both the actors in scenes and the audience watching — became a thing. I tried to really ask myself, especially in the last six episodes, was it necessary? And was my emotion, in some way, going to rob the audience? I have a close relationship with my dad, and going through that journey of Zeek being sick with Craig [T. Nelson] was very personally emotional. You have to be disciplined. Those scenes with Craig, I just thought, ‘If someone is ill, you don’t show them how worried you are’ — not even my character, who had her limitations.”

The gallery now has a bunch of snapshots from last night’s Gilmore Girls Reunion event at the ATX Television Festival!

I was especially touched that they left a chair for the late Edward Herrman and how they talked about him during the panel. Plus it is nice to think of Luke & Lorelai happily together as Lauren feels they are.

EW.com did a live blog during the event tonight.

After eight years, the Gilmore Girls are back together! At the ATX Television Festival’s main event Saturday night in Austin, Texas, the cast and producers the beloved The WB mother-daughter dramedy held a Stars Hollow town hall reunion. The line to get inside the State Theater wrapped around the block as eager fans tried to get into the Entertainment Weekly sponsored event, but you can get a front-row-seat covering what happened right here.

Our No. 1 question: At a time when so many favorite shows being revived … could Gilmore Girls ever receive a second life and give fans a more satisfying ending?

7:31 p.m.: Panel was supposed to start at 7 p.m. but things are running late. That’s what happens when you have more than a dozen TV stars walking a red carpet. A few cast members like Jared Padalecki and Milo Ventimiglia venture into the theater. Screams, screams, screams from the crowd….

7:40 p.m.: Lights go down. The Gilmore Girls opening credits plays. The audience sings along.

7:43 p.m.: Arielle Kebbel, who played Dean’s former flame Lindsay Lister, takes the stage to introduce the executive directors of ATX Festival, Caitlin McFarland and Emily Gipson, who teared up ahead of the panel. ”Gilmore Girls have been on our list for four years [to bring the festival],” McFarland said.

7:46 p.m.: EW Morning Live’s Jessica Shaw takes the stage, followed by Amy Sherman-Palladino, Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel and Kelly Bishop.

7:50 p.m.: Sherman-Palladino recounts how she first pitched the show during a meeting with The WB. She met with executives and went through her ideas, which the network wasn’t interested in. “And the last thing I said was, ‘I have an idea about a mother and daughter who are more like friends and they said, ‘I’ll buy that.’” Except that was literally all Sherman-Palladino had. “I was like, ‘I have no idea what that is!’ … She went on a weekend holiday, “and we were staying at an inn and I thought, ‘Maybe [the mother] works at an inn?’” … “And by the time Monday came around, it all came into place,” she said, adding she wrote the pilot’s kitchen scene on the hotel’s stationary.

7:52 p.m.: Graham had heard about the Gilmore Girls script, but she was on another show on NBC. “Finally, they had seen other people, they said, ‘OK we know you’re on this other show, but will you come in and audition?’” she says. “The first time I read it and something really clicked.”

This morning Gilmore Girls show creator Amy Sherman-Palladino spoke at a special coffee session this morning at the ATX Television Festival. Read the rundown from the event from The Hollywood Reporter.

Amy Sherman-Palladino prepared for Saturday night’s big Gilmore Girls reunion panel with an intimate and often humorous coffee session at the ATX Television Festival in Austin with a look back at secrets of the beloved show.

The panel, held in a 75-person ballroom Saturday morning, was standing-room only — with a line of diehard fans that had to be cut off more than two hours before the intimate gathering began.

Gilmore Girls, starring Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel, ran for seven seasons on The WB/CW. The dramedy revolved around a single mother and her daughter and their unique friendship, with the show seeing resurgence of late — thanks to Netflix — where it has been reaching a new fan base. Sherman-Palladino credited the humor of the series for its longevity. “If you put the humor into it, which is how everybody goes through life because otherwise we’d be f— the bats, we’d be jumping off that bridge — I think that humor is what keeps it energetic and hopeful,” she said, referencing Austin’s famed bat bridge. “That’s how we get through life.”

“You expect to be fired before it gets on the air. Gilmore Girls was different for The WB at the time, it wasn’t really in their wheelhouse,” she recalled of the early days at The WB, calling the young network in a “renegade mood” when the show launched — until it was scheduled opposite Friends and Survivor. “Nobody expected us to get watched or viewed. Then they moved us and put on this little show called American Idol. Then you think we’re not going to make it — and then we went off the air and you expect to meet at the actors’ home and play bingo. Then DVDs and Netflix kept it going. I didn’t even know it was going on Netflix!”

Gilmore Girls, which ran on the then-WB Network for seven seasons — six under Sherman-Palladino’s oversight before she exited the beloved series following a contract dispute with studio Warner Bros. TV. Sherman-Palladino, who politely and humorously refused to reveal the final four words she had in mind for the series finale, was candid about the origins of the beloved series. Sherman-Palladino also revealed she’s currently writing a pilot for Amazon and is working on a musical.

“I kinda want to do a show about a mother and daughter — and they’re friends,” she joked of the early pitch for Gilmore Girls, describing the creation of its central town Stars Hollows “candy colored.” “You want that feeling of warmth. If I had to pick the perfect place for me to live, that’s where it would be.”

Sherman-Palladino praised the network for allowing her the creative freedom to create the show — and characters with talent she wanted — with little to no notes and pushback.

Where the Gilmore Girls cast leads, fans will follow—all the way to the ATX Festival, which will hold a reunion panel in conjunction with Entertainment Weekly.

The reunion panel will look much like a Stars Hollow town hall meeting, with a large number of the show’s main cast members as well as executive producers Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino in attendance. The panel will be the closing night event for the festival, reuniting the cast and crew on Saturday, June 6 in the Paramount Theater for those in attendance.

For those who can’t make it, fear not—EW will host a video of the panel. (More details on when are coming.)

As for the panel itself, which will be moderated by EW Morning Live host Jessica Shaw: Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Kelly Bishop, Scott Patterson, Liza Weil, Keiko Agena, Danny Strong, Matt Czuchry, Jackson Douglas, Todd Lowe, Liz Torres, Yanic Truesdale and John Cabrera, Jared Padalecki, and Milo Ventimiglia will all be there. The panel will be held in the Paramount Theater at 7 p.m.

For those at the festival, there will also be a sit-down coffee chat with Amy Sherman-Palladino, moderated by EW’s Danielle Nussbaum, on June 6 at 10 a.m.

To prepare yourselves, EW has suggested 5 episodes to watch before the panel—and in the meantime, Luke himself, Scott Patterson, has rekindled hopes for a Gilmore Girls movie, which will likely either be completely dashed or stoked further by the reunion panel.
