In Talking as Fast as I Can, Lauren Graham hits pause for a moment and looks back on her life, sharing laugh-out-loud stories about growing up, starting out as an actress, and years later, sitting in her trailer on theParenthood set and asking herself, ´Did you, um, make it?´ She opens up about the challenges of being single in Hollywood (´Strangers were worried about me; that´s how long I was single!´), the time she was asked to audition her butt for a role, and her experience being a judge on Project Runway (´It´s like I had a fashion-induced blackout.´)
In ´What It Was Like, Part One´, for the first time Graham settles in for an epic Gilmore Girls marathon and reflects on being cast as the fast-talking Lorelai Gilmore. The essay ´What It Was Like, Part Two´ reveals how it felt to pick up the role again nine years later, and what doing so meant to her.
Some more things you will learn about Lauren: She once tried to go vegan just to bond with Ellen DeGeneres, she´s aware that meeting guys at awards shows has its pitfalls (´If you´re meeting someone for the first time after three hours of hair, makeup, and styling, you´ve already set the bar too high.´), and she´s a card-carrying REI shopper (´My bungee cords now earn points!´).
Complete with photos and excerpts from the diary Graham kept during the filming of the recent Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, this book is like a cozy night in, catching up with your best friend, laughing and swapping stories, and - of course - talking as fast as you can.
