If you’ve been putting your bunheads together, trying to figure out who Stacey Oristano will play in the upcoming Gilmore Girls revival A Year in the Life, the actress herself recently contributed a small clue.
“I’m not in Stars Hollow,” Oristano told TV Insider, adding that her scenes take place “outside” of the town limits. “I cause trouble in other places.”
In March, Oristano — who played neurotic shopkeeper Truly in Amy Sherman-Palladino’s ABC Family dramedy Bunheads — was added to the cast of AS-P’s Gilmore revival in a top-secret role.
Series creator AS-P and exec producer Daniel Palladino wrote and directed all of the revival’s four 90-minute episodes/mini-movies, which will debut on the streaming video service later this year. As TVLine exclusively revealed, each chapter will represent a different season over the course of one calendar year (as such, the episodes will be titled “Winter,” Spring,” Summer” and “Fall”).
Oristano says she is such a huge Gilmore fan, she was “shaking” at the table read. “That’s Lorelai and Rory right besides me!,” she tells the site. “I was freaking out a little bit.”
