Doctor Who star Alex Kingston has revealed that she is playing a “very eccentric character” in the upcoming revival of The Gilmore Girls.
The American comedy-drama television series originally ran for seven seasons from October 2000 to May 2007 and will return on Netflix later this year.
Alex Kingston announced her role at a Miami fan convention over the weekend: “I also got to play a role in the reboot of the Gilmore Girls. I play a very eccentric character in a couple of those episodes.”
She added: “It was so funny for them to sort of reboot it again. Alexis… she’s all grown up. That’s amazing. I remember when she was so young. This time, though, they didn’t shoot the show at Warner Bros lot. We were on location, which was nice.”
Titled Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, the limited series consists of four brand new 90-minute episodes and will be released on 22 November.
