Though you may not have seen much of Gilmore Girls star Lauren Graham since that show's conclusion, you'll be pleased to know that this will soon change.
Graham revealed what's in store for her in the upcoming year in this Exclusive Q&A with EW's Michael Ausiello.
Graham will soon be appearing in a Broadway production of musical Guys and Dolls. Wondering if she can sing?
Asks Ausiello: How's the singing coming? I think the only time I've heard you sing was in an episode of Gilmore Girls.
Responds Graham: "Yes, but Lorelai was drunk! People keep saying that to me and I'm like, "Don't gauge my singing ability by Lorelai singing drunk in the seventh season. That wasn't my Broadway debut." [Laughs] It's hard to talk about. I auditioned. I've been training as a singer for a long time. I did musicals in high school and college. I did summer stock. I got my equity card before any of my other unions - I thought I was on that path. But I stopped for a while. Also, this is not a legit soprano part; I can't sing that music. But this is something I'm enjoying doing. I really connect with this character. I really like her. I feel comfortable in this medium. I feel happy to be here. It's been a challenge, but I'm really enjoying it."
And...for those of us who won't be able to catch Graham on Broadway, she's also landed the lead in a new ABC series from Mitch Hurwitz (Arrested Development) and Alex Herschlag (Will & Grace). Graham will be playing a self-help guru who is deeply flawed. Graham describes the show as a dark comedy. Graham hopes to film the pilot while working on Guys and Dolls (to which she is committed through October).
So...excited to see Graham doing things again?
(and while Ausiello teases a Gilmore movie, don't get too excited, because it ain't happening)
