Alexis gave a short but sweet tribute to Edward Herrmann on TVLine last month, after the beloved actor passed away on December 31st, 2014 from a long battle with brain cancer. Bledel and Herrmann worked together for years and became family on Gilmore Girls, and Alexis spoke about how her TV grandpa truly was the head of their makeshift family.
Alexis Bledel’s short statement:
“Ed Herrmann was a wonderful actor and a kind man. He was endlessly knowledgeable about theater, TV and film, and would generously share his wisdom or tell stories from a long and rewarding career. I am grateful to him for that, and will miss him tremendously. He loved acting and was the head of our Gilmore family with his strong presence and great sense of humor. May he rest in peace.”
Harry Potter star Emma Watson will be in another bookish heroine role.
Emma’s Quote About Playing Belle:
“I will be playing Belle in Disney’s new live-action Beauty and the Beast!” the actress posted on her Facebook page. “My six year old self is on the ceiling – heart bursting. Time to start some singing lessons.”
Movie Director: Bill Condon, who directed The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.
