Chad Michael Murray Was Recast on 'Gilmore Girls' Revival
Chad Michael Murray is not reprising his role as Tristan in the Netflix series Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, which just debuted for streaming.
The 35-year-old actor was asked to appear in an episode of the revival series, but he reportedly declined the invitation, according to TV Line.
Chad appeared on the first two seasons of Gilmore Girls as Tristan, one of Rory’s classmates at Chilton who had a crush on her. She was in love with Dean (Jared Padalecki) at the time, but Paris (Liza Weil) set her eyes on Tristan.
Tristan does make an appearance in the “Spring” episode of A Year in the Life for a fun moment with Paris.
