Bledel, 33, played Graham’s daughter Rory Gilmore on the beloved series Gilmore Girls, which had a massive cast reunion on Saturday, June 6. She and her former TV mom joined fellow Gilmore Girls alums, including creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, Kelly Bishop, Milo Ventimiglia, Scott Patterson, and more, to chat about the beloved series and rumors of a possible reboot.

The Parenthood actress has previously admitted to not watching Gilmore Girls, according to her costar and pal Sarah Ramos, who told the Gilmore Guys podcast that Whitman doesn’t want to see Graham parent another kid on TV. 

“I get so protective when Lauren Graham has any other TV kids,” Whitman told Us Weekly at the festival. “I see Alexis Bledel and my heart goes into a seizure.”
