Michael York: An Update

Share

Michael York played the brilliant Asher Fleming in 4 episodes of Gilmore Girls. Though Michael York was only in a handful of episodes, he was a ‘part’ of a good many more episodes thanks to his relationship with Paris Geller (Liza Weil) and the fallout of that, and his subsequent death.

On Gilmore Girls, Asher Fleming is a Yale professor and author with a penchant for dating his students. Paris Geller was only one in a long line of students whom he dated, but one that he perhaps took more seriously – introducing her to his family and taking her with him during the summer.

Here’s a video about Paris’ romance with Asher:

Michael York makes four appearances on Gilmore Girls in Season 4, but it’s not until the third episode of Season 5, ‘Written in the Stars‘, that we find out that Asher died from a heart attack and that Paris is in mourning.

Michael York has had a long and illustrious career as an actor, probably best known as Basil Exposition in the Austin Powers films. Michael York has four upcoming movies including Mika i Alfred, Quantum Quest: A Cassini Space Odyssey, The Mill and the Cross, and Quantum Heist.

Here’s another photo of Michael York and his wife Patricia McCallum at a recent (January 9, 2009) event to celebrate the Golden Globe nominated Best Foreign Language Film (France) I’ve Loved You So Long:

    Just thought I’d point out that Asher Fleming was in season four, not three. Paris was still in high school in season three. And Written In The Stars was in the fifth season. I’m sure it was just a typo or a slight case of mentalpause, cause any rabid GG fan knows their episodes and seasons. Lol! Nice to hear he’s keeping busy though. My teenaged daughter just watched Michael York in the original Romeo And Juliet movie from 1968. My how time flies!
