When we were casting the part of Richard on Gilmore Girls, we all sat around saying, ‘If we could only get Ed Herrmann.’ So we sent the script to his agent who said Ed will come in and meet, but he won’t read. We said fine — great. Set it up. The agent said, ‘But I need you to understand — he will not read.’ We said we get it — no reading. The agent said, ‘He’s Ed Herrmann. He’s worked with Woody Allen! He was in Reds! He will not, under any circumstances, read!’ We were like ‘Hey, if he’ll even sit down and talk to us, we’d be honored.’ So Ed came in. He sat down and said, ‘I like it. It’s funny. Should I read?’ We sat there in stunned silence as Ed opened the script and proceeded to read. And just like that, Richard Gilmore was sitting in front of us. And that’s when I knew this show was charmed… To our patriarch, I thank you. I miss you. And I could never repay you.

“The greatest joy for me, however, is the impact the show has had on a whole generation of young people who learned that, though growing up is tough at the best of times, it can be done with humour, honesty, and love.” - Edward Hermann (July 21, 1943 - December 31, 2014)

Ed Herrmann’s combination of pure charisma plus his distinctive voice lit up any room he entered. He had a gentlemanly manner, a wicked sense of humor, and a sharp wit. He was well-read, interesting, and just plain fun to be around. He had deep respect and love for the craft of acting and led by example. You wanted to be better prepared, or just plain better, because he always was. He brought such humor and humanity to all his work, but I know the character of Richard Gilmore had a special place in his heart. He loved our show and was touched by the enthusiasm of its fans.

Lauren Graham’s tribute to Edward Herrmann

So sad to hear about the passing of Edward Herrmann, our favorite Gilmore patriarch. A talented and brilliant actor, an incredible loss.

So, my incredible best friend completely overwhelmed me on Christmas Day (which also happens to be my birthday) with a gift of books.
But not just any books.
This collection of books happen to be the books that Rory Gilmore and Jess Mariano shared and/or discussed on Gilmore Girls.
I had absolutely no idea what she was up to, that she’d been collecting these for over six months, and this is pretty much the most thoughtful present I’ve ever received.
I have an absolutely amazing best friend. :)
