Sutton Foster Gushes Over Being On The Set Of ‘Gilmore Girls’: ‘Just Surreal’
With older sitcom shows getting a new life on Netflix, it’s no surprise fan-favorite Gilmore Girls got the nod. Younger actress Sutton Foster, for one, had complex feelings with being on the set.

Foster previously starred on Gilmore Girls’ creator Amy Sherman-Palladino series Bunheads, and joined the cast of Gilmore Girls for a new and mysterious role.
“[Being on the Gilmore Girls set] was just surreal, and I was really nervous. When it was over I just burst into tears… I was totally satisfied with the experience… Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino, who I worked with on Bunheads, they wrote a really special part for me. It was awesome. I walked away from the entire experience thinking that I wouldn’t change a thing.”
Lauren Graham, who plays Lorelei Gilmore, tweeted, “It was a nerd-fest for us both, and her scenes are bonkers fantastic” in response to Foster.
