40 Gilmore Girls Facts That’ll Make You Say “Oy With the Poodles Already!”
Luke was supposed to be a woman.
We’re not pulling some epic Gilmore Girls joke on you. This is a legitimate fact. In an interview with EW, creator Amy Sherman-Palladino revealed that Luke Danes wasn’t supposed to exist in the way we know him at all. The character was actually originally a woman named Daisy. What’s more, the character was just supposed to have a minor role on the series. So, what accounted for the change? Amy explained, “[The network] came to me and said ‘we need another guy,’ so I literally just took a character and changed the name, [I] didn’t even change any of the dialogue because I’m that lazy.” When she saw Lauren Graham and Scott Patterson, aka Lorelai and Luke, had chemistry, that impacted the direction of the script.
