My daughter and I spent her high school years gobbling up GILMORE GIRLS on DVD. So it's fairly surreal for her to see Rory Gilmore (Alexis Bledel) walking around the USC campus in a graduation gown this week!
USC stands in for Yale on the series. (In LEGALLY BLONDE, USC was Harvard, so it's an equal opportunity Ivy League "location.") The show was also on campus one day last fall. Lauren Graham (Lorelai) and David Sutcliffe (Christopher) were very kind to the college kids watching them film and even took the time to pose for photos at the end of a very long shooting day. The show's crew also went out of their way to explain things and answer questions for the interested students.
Based on a look at Gilmore Girls Spoilers, the episode filming this week will be airing on May 8th.
