We’ve always known River Song’s life was bigger on the inside, but we had no idea her world would also include Stars Hollow, Connecticut. (Because why would you go to Connecticut when you have a TARDIS? All of time and space and you end up in Fictional New England? Don’t worry, it’s cool I can say that I’m from there.) Well, apparently the Doctor Who star is making a quick pit stop at Luke’s Diner for a pot or two of coffee, as Alex Kingston herself has confirmed she will appear on the Netflix reboot of Gilmore Girls.
According to the video—that came to us by way of BuzzFeed‘s Jarett Wieselman—Kingston explains that she, “also got to play a role in the reboot of Gilmore Girls … I know they’ve released the information, but I don’t know how much we’re allowed to talk about. I play a sort of very eccentric character in a couple of those episodes.”
Now, if there’s one thing Kingston does well, it’s eccentricity. We adore her ability to really sink her teeth into the slightly off-kilter types. Our hearts are already buzzing with anticipation at the mere idea of Kingston’s attitude and sass absolutely owning Amy Sherman-Palladino’s bouncy, snarky, zippy dialogue. I MEAN AS IF WE WEREN’T ALREADY OUT OF OUR MINDS ABOUT THIS.
