Lauren Graham & Kelly Bishop Remember Their 'Gilmore Girls' Co-Star Edward Herrmann After His Tragic Death

Kelly Bishop, who played Emily Gilmore on the Gilmore Girls opposite the late Edward Herrmann, has released a statement following his death.

“We, the Gilmore Girls family, are so terribly sad and somewhat stunned. We only learned about his illness a week or so ago. I got a call from [Edward’s wife] Star Monday night asking if I wanted to come to the hospital to say good-bye,” the 70-year-old actress said (via TV Line). “I went yesterday and was able to give Ed love from Lauren [Graham], Alexis [Bledel] and Amy [Sherman-Palladino]…I have so many fond memories of our time together on Gilmore Girls and since, mainly via email. I think everyone who knew or worked with Ed found him to be absolutely delightful… Everything looks a little dim, as if the lights went down.”

Lauren, who played his daughter on the hit show, posted on Twitter, “My friend Ed Herrmann was the kindest, classiest, most talented man. It was an honor and a joy to know him, a devastating blow to lose him.”
