Two “Gilmore Girls” stars shared their love for each other in a recent Instagram post.
Yanic Truesdale, who plays the somewhat bitter Michel Gerard, snapped a photo with Melissa McCarthy after the two ran into each other by chance while vacationing in Greece, according to Mashable.
"I love when this happens! By coincidence, we both booked a vacation at the same time in Greece! #magicaltiming #bestvacation,” Truesdale wrote on Instagram.
Truesdale also referenced Lauren Graham, who plays Lorelai Gilmore on the show, when he tweeted a photo of himself reading her latest book.
Utah has a pretty strong love for “Gilmore Girls.” Back in January, data from highspeedinternet.com found that the drama was the most-streamed Netflix show in the state. Tennessee was the only other state to match Utah’s enthusiasm for the show.
Similarly, data from Estately, a blog dedicated to homebuying information, found that “Gilmore Girls” was also Utah’s most-searched TV show on Google.
Utah also embraced the show’s marketing campaign when “Gilmore Girls” returned with a Netflix-exclusive miniseries.
As the Deseret News reported, two Salt Lake City coffee shops transformed into Luke’s Diner, a popular location seen on the show. Both Higher Ground Coffee on 2005 E. 3300 South and Mestizo Coffee House at 631 W. North Temple temporarily became the famed coffee shop, which was a marketing gimmick put on by the show to promote its new season.
Netflix encouraged 200 coffee shops to switch over to the Luke’s design. Coffee shops handed out cups with the Luke’s Diner logo, too.
Adriana Martinez, supervisor and assistant manager of Mestizo in Utah, told the Deseret News that she knew her customers would embrace the show, so she accepted the offer.
“‘Gilmore Girls’ — it’s been around for 15 years,” she said in a phone interview. “It’s been a part of … pop culture and people really love it and hold it to heart.”
