Gilmore Girls hit the air back in 2000 and fans are still talking about the popular show today! Although we fell in love with Lorelai and Rory on the show, there are many things that happened behind the scenes that the cast tirelessly tried to keep a secret. Now, those secrets have come to light, and if you consider yourself a super-fan of this iconic show then you HAVE to see what made the list!
1The Dialogue Was Extremely Fast-Paced
One of the most distinct traits of Gilmore Girls was the unusually quick dialogue - it only takes a single episode of GG to realize how fast-paced the characters spoke. While average TV episode scripts are 45–50 pages, GG scripts were often 75–80 pages. This was because as opposed to normal shows where one page of screenplay is equivalent to one minute of screen time, a page of GG scripts was only equal to about 20 or 25 seconds.
2Alexis Bledel Hates Coffee
Okay, we all know that Rory was a bit of a coffee addict on the show. However, Alexis Bledel actually hates coffee in real life and filled her cup up with coke throughout the show. Gasp – say it ain’t so! Would you be able to rewatch the series knowing that Rory isn’t actually drinking her one caffeinated vice? Yeah, this tidbit will definitely take some getting used to.
