Yanic Truesdale Has Read the Four Final Words

Share

Yanic Truesdale, who plays Michel, has been a great friend to us Gilmore Girls fans, posting photos of himself with Melissa McCarthy, with David Sutcliffe, with Lauren Graham and with Jared Padalecki. We are truly thankful for these photos which show the long-lasting friendships that formed on the show and the love that has blossomed back on set. Yanic recently gave an interview with US Magazine to talk about what it’s been like to be back in Stars Hollow. 

Hanging out with the queen of comedy @melissamccarthy for The Boss premiere. Go see it guys, its hillarious!!

Yanic mentions in the interview how pivotal the ATX Festival was in demonstrating that Gilmore Girls not only had a core group of fans from the beginning, but a whole new generation of fans thanks to its distribution on Netflix. 

“I think it reinforces how strong the show still is and how much the audience is still very much growing, and new generations are discovering the show. I think whatever was in the works then, I’m sure it kind of solidified the process.”

Now that the reunion is firmly under way, and Yanic has been back on set filming, he has some wonderful insights into what it’s been like to return to Gilmore Girls:

“There is a surreal element to it because it’s a place where we haven’t been in a long time, and even though it has been a while, the show has never really left us. There is not a day that I walk on the street anywhere in the world [where] I don’t have people coming up to me and talking about Michel and the show and this and that.

It’s like meeting a former best friend that moved away, and that you finally meet after six or seven years, and you’re catching up, and you’re kind of all nervous, but it feels comfortable, but you’re kind of getting used to each other, and you have changed and they have changed,” he continues. “After the first day of shooting, I just looked at Lauren, and I looked at Amy, and I said, ‘It feels like we never stopped.'”

We are so glad to have you back, Yanic! And, those four words? We are SO excited to find out what they are!

“I know them because I read the script!” cast member Yanic Truesdale (Michel) tells Us. “I always felt it was intriguing, like everyone else. I was like, ‘How does she know the last four words?’ But when I read it, I was like, ‘Oh, OK. That makes sense.’ I can see now why she knew that that would be said.”

    It is great that those last four words will now be known but at the same time it also says this is going to end once again. Part of me hoped for more after these 4 mini movie episodes. No Gilmore fan ever wants to see this show end but at least it will end the way Amy wants it.

    Oh, I agree. So sad that this show will end. But the entire series holds up to replays very, very well. Hoping the reunion shows may also be offered on DVD for repeat viewing. Does Netflix do that? Don’t have Netflex, but I’ll buy it for this series.

    Those will be the saddest 4 words in the world because we have to go through the grief of knowing it’s time to say goodbye again to Stars Hollow and all it’s wacky, funny, lovely inhabitants. I’ve missed them all these years, can’t wait to see them again. I am so grateful for Amy and Dan finally being able to end the Gilmore saga the way it should have been, but I am not looking forward to those last four words, whatever they are. Thanks everyone, for giving us back our Gilmore girls. We’ve missed you more than you could ever know.

    “She’s my best friend.” That’s my best guess.

    I bet that the last four words will be “I love you mom”.

    My money is still on a wedding.

    Lorelai is preparing to walk Rory down the aisle. The music starts, and Rory asks her mom “Are you ready?” And Lorelai whispers “Yes.”

    I think I read that the four words are spoken by Lorelai and Rory at different times. Could easily be wrong, though.

    My guess on the last four words? “Happy?” “I am, kid.”

    I’m scared the last four words will be “Good bye Stars Hallow” spoken by Lorelai.

    I think they may both get married (If Lorelai isn’t already). A very final way to end “Gilmore Girls” would be for them not to be named Gilmore anymore.

    Lorelai Danes does, though, doesn’t it? Maybe that’s the wedding we’ll see. Or Rory will become Rory Gilmore-Mariano or Rory Gilmore-Huntsberger. (What a mouthful that last one is. Haha.) Or, she could keep her name, and so could Lorelai. They are modern, independent women.
