As filming has gotten under way for the Gilmore Girls revival, Gilmore Girls: Seasons, we can’t help but feel a missing presence. As names are released for casting updates, we are always missing one. A big one. Edward Herrmann, who passed away last year. As Kelly Bishop noted in her interview, “we so miss him,” and yes, it’s going to be “hard without him,” as much for the actors on set as for us fans for whom Richard Gilmore was a beloved character. In memoriam of Edward Herrmann, I put together a list of all the ways we will miss Richard Gilmore. #BowtiesForever
For all the bowties
For sharing your adventurous past
For being up for a prank
For your sage advice on drinking wine
And help in choosing a new doctor
For all the small ways you noticed Rory
And went over the top as well
For golfing. And Fez.
For Love, back in bloom
And choosing Rory for your best man
For being the man she could always rely on
For this, in every way.
For the love that always triumphs
And finally, for a promise well meant.
We miss you Richard. Rest in peace, Edward. #BowtiesForever
