Lauren Graham: Dad’s 70th Birthday Party
We all know actress Lauren Graham for her roles on beloved TV shows like Gilmore Girls and Parenthood. However, Lauren joined Kelly & Michael for a chat about a very different sort of project: her debut novel, Someday, Someday, Maybe. First, Lauren discussed her dad’s 70th birthday party.
When Kelly asked if the party for Lauren’s dad was a surprise, she joked, “no, he knew he was turning 70.” Recently, the father and daughter spent some time together on opening day at Yankees Stadium. It was lots of fun, even though it was pretty cold.
Lauren Graham: Parenthood Renewed
It was recently announced that Lauren’s NBC series Parenthood has been renewed for another season. Kelly and Mark both love Parenthood and believe it’s so well-acted that the scenes feel like real discussions between family members. Lauren agrees that the relationships between the cast members give the show its unique “texture.”
Lauren Graham: Boyfriend Peter Krause
Speaking of relationships, Lauren found her boyfriend, Peter Krause, on set. In fact, Peter is her TV brother. “It’s so wrong!” she admitted. “It’s creepy, but it works for us.” The couple have been together for almost four years.
In reality, though, Lauren and Peter did not meet on the set of Parenthood; they had known each other for many years prior. Kelly (who also found love with a co-star) pointed out how convenient it is for actors to date each other while filming a TV show.
They’re so busy that if they didn’t, they’d probably never meet anyone else!
Lauren Graham: Someday, Someday, Maybe Review
Lauren’s debut novel, Someday, Someday, Maybe, is the witty story of a struggling actress in New York City. While it’s not a memoir, Lauren did admit, “there’s a lot of me in it.” Someday, Someday, Maybe is about following a dream, as well as “the tiny triumphs along the way and the many, many failures.”
Although Someday, Someday, Maybe is Lauren’s first novel, she has written before – she was an English major at Barnard College. First, the writing process was easy, but as soon as she had a deadline, things became a lot harder. However, all the work definitely paid off. Lauren recently received a great review from The Washington Post.
Already, Lauren is working on a follow-up, and she’s excited to experience the entire process all over again. In the meantime, be sure to read the very funny Someday, Someday, Maybe.
