Doctor Who’s Alex Kingston Joins Gilmore Girls Revival

The Gilmore Girls’ Netflix revival just got even better, with Doctor Who actress, Alex Kingston, signing up to join the show.


Alex, known to Doctor Who fans as River Song in the series, confirmed her part in the upcoming revival at Florida SuperCon, revealing that she’ll appear in more than one of the four new episodes.

Digital Spy reports that she told a panel: “I play a very eccentric character in a couple of those episodes.

“It was so funny for them to sort of reboot it again. Alexis… she’s all grown up. She’s got a baby. I remember when she was so young.”

Alex is being pretty tight-lipped on exactly what we can expect when the residents of Stars Hollow return, keeping coy about what happened during filming.

She added: “It was great. We actually didn’t film [my scenes] on the Warner Bros lot. We were on location, which was nice. But that’s all I’m going to say.”

We NEED some more detail about this, please!

The highly-anticipated Gilmore Girls return comes after Netflix made all series of the original version available to stream again and again - because, let’s face it, there’s no limit to the amount of times we could watch this classic show.
