Kelly Bishop
Reveals The
Simple Key To
Gilmore Girls'
Thanks to streaming platforms like Netflix, new life has been breathed into "Gilmore Girls," but what has made the show stand the test of time and be loved by the next generation? Kelly Bishop, the actress who portrayed Rory's stern, yet loving, grandmother Emily Gilmore, believes the answer is pretty straightforward.
In a 2016 appearance on "TODAY," Bishop shared her thoughts on why "Gilmore Girls" is still popular so many years after its finale. "There's a basic sweetness to the show. There's a goodness," she said.
A big draw for "Gilmore Girls" is that it's female-centric and features some hard-working heroines. However, Bishop stated that the show’s men must also be applauded. Even though Luke, Jess, and the rest have their share of unfavorable moments, she believes that none of them have poor intentions concerning the ladies of Stars Hollow.
