Eric Henry It's so not fair to compare this Gilmore Girls new comer to his AYITL character Nat Compton. Eric is delightful in real life and you'll see him during the cast panel and elsewhere that weekend because he'll surely share his musical or theatrical talents with us too, if we're lucky.

Liz Torres To know her is to love her, she is a colorful and kind woman whom we're all grateful for. Miss Patty was a hoot, but Liz is larger than life. She will sing, she will dance, but no matter what she will always be the illustrious Liz Torres. This year she'll certainly make you smile as part of the cast panel and as she joins the local dance company!

Rini Bell Lulu may be Kirk's affable leading lady on Gilmore Girls, but in real life she's just as lively and kind hearted. At the festival, we're sure she'll have lots to share Kirk and Lulu's on screen relationship (and Petal, of course), but she'll also be sharing her soap making hobby to benefit the Cerebral Palsy Foundation.
