Melissa McCarthy

Lauren Graham’s Reddit AMA – Highlights Pt. 2

Highlights Pt. 2:

Q: Was Melissa McCarthy hilarious to work with in Gilmore Girls? I love that many of the cast of that show went on to have such great acting careers!

A: Truly hilarious and kind on set, and then I’d go see her in Groundlings and be blown away by the characters she created.

Q: Who out of the cast on parenthood is the most similar to their character ?

A: Hard to say. Dax is an extremely funny guy who is also a super dedicated family man – like Crosby. And Peter is obviously perfect, just like Adam. 🙂

Q: Did you have a good relationship with Alexis, do you still see her? You guys made such a great mother/daughter combination.

A: Love her, we’ll always have a special bond. Saw her in NY not too long ago. I had a nice lunch with TV mom Kelly and Amy S.P. as well. We went to Joe Allen, one of my faves.

Q: Top 3 things you love to do when you’re in NYC!

A: I love to walk, anywhere really, but especially over the Brooklyn Bridge, shop with my sister, eat at Momofuku.

Q: Who would you say had the biggest influence on you growing up/who influenced your decision to pursue acting?

A: Thank you so much. My dad was always supportive of whatever I showed an interest in – from horseback riding to acting. And I had some great teachers along the way too.
