2014 has been a pretty tough year for Hollywood, losing some truly amazing people, sadly on the last of 2014 the year got even sadder. Tony and Emmy winning actor Edward Herrmann, best known (and beloved) for playing Richard Gilmore on Gilmore Girls has passed away at the age of 71 after a battle with brain cancer.
I would love to write more about this amazingly talented man, but I’m far too busy crying at my desk.
And not too long ago, when I heard about the Amy Sherman-Palladino, Lauren Graham & Alexis Bledel would be meeting up at the ATX Festival for a reunion, I could not have yelled any louder on here about my desire for a Gilmore Girls movie that would finally give us fans the closure we all wanted (needed) – but now? I take it back. Because frankly I don’t want to see a world where Richard Gilmore doesn’t exist.
Richard Herrmann was an incredibly talented man and I am sure he will be missed by many.
