The cast of the show weighs in on who fan-favorite characters would be voting for
Oy with the election already!
With Nov. 8 fast approaching and the promise of the never-ending election finally coming to an end, there is only one crucial lingering question left to be answered: who would the residents of Stars Hallow vote for?
Fear not, the cast of the show is here to help!
Gathering in Washington Depot, Connecticut for the first ever Gilmore Girls festival, fan-favorite cast members talked to Time about who their characters would be voting for.
“I think Lane would vote for Hillary Clinton,” says Keiko Agena, who plays Rory’s best friend, Lane Kim. “Lane and Lorelai and Rory would have debate watching parties for sure. You know Lorelai would set up some kind of drinking game or something for the debates because it’s too much entertainment.”
“But ultimately, they’re going to all vote for Hillary Clinton,” Keiko adds.
Another character firmly on Clinton’s side is the gender-stereotype breaking Gypsy, who works as the town mechanic and would be all about a female president.
“She’d be with her all the way,” says Rose Abdoo, the actress who plays Gypsy. “She has a pin that says ‘I Believe She Will Win.’ That’s Gypsy.”
As for the town’s do-it-all jester, Sean Gunn isn’t convinced fan-favorite Kirk would make a good choice on election day.
“I would not rely on Kirk to make a good decision for who to vote for,” Gunn admits of his beloved character. “Whichever of the two candidates you think might make a terrible, terrible president is probably the one that Kirk would vote for.”
And some characters may not even vote for the major party candidates — at least that’s what Jackson Douglas thinks.
“Who’s got the least amount of votes? Who’s got the longest shot? I’m gonna vote for that guy,” Douglas says of his character Jackson’s train of thought leading into the election, even implying that Jackson would throw a dart to decide who to vote for.
Either way, one thing is clear: all of the opinionated residents of the New England town would definitely be making their voices heard on Election Day.
