‘Gilmore’s’ Patty Malcolm on Facebook
Hi all. Just wanted to take a minute to tell you that Patty Malcolm, who was Lauren Graham’s stand-in for most of Gilmore Girls, finally has a Facebook Page up.
Those who’ve read The Gilmore Girls Companion already will know that not only was Patty’s role in the show very involved, but also that her story is one of the more intriguing ones from behind the scenes.
It’s not often that you have the opportunity to see an actor at the start of their career; it’s rarer still that you see them making the jump from stand-in to being a more traditional actor. I believe this Facebook page offers us a window into both. (There was a great deal that was going on in Patty’s career at the time that I was finishing up the book; I remember actually having to rewrite the end because of a career decision that she made.)
For those who are interested in how Hollywood really works and how exactly an actor makes it in “the business,” I would suggest “Liking” Patty’s page and following her progress; I can’t think of a better way to really understand how it all comes together.
