 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. you'll get to know him better during the cast panel and he'll share his musical talents with us too (alone and with an accompaniment of Brad Ellis).

 George Bell  This multi-talented member of the Gilmore Girls crew, served not only as a dialogue coach, but also played a few roles on the show as well. George will no doubt bring a fresh perspective to the crew panel this year! We are so glad he's coming back to join us in Kent this fall!

 Tanc Sade  Finn. Life and Death Bridgade. Logan's pal. He probably doesn't need much of an introduction. We're so glad to welcome him to Kent. Whether you're team Logan or team anyone else, you can't argue that Finn isn't everything that's right about some of your favorite moments from Rory's college years.

 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 in a meet & Greet you don’t want to miss. ALongside Aris she’ll do some improv and with Eric by her side she’ll do just a bit of Karaoke. In Mrs. Gleason fashion, you’ll see her a little bit everywhere.

 JOHN CABRERA  JOHn, who doesn’t really play bass when he’s not on Gilmore Girls, has a lot to say about fandoms (totally relatable) and their influence on his creative path. He’ll be back at the festival this year, of course sharing more about his time with HEP ALIEN, but also in a one on one Q&A talking about his journey from in front of the camera (as an actor) to behind the camera (as a creator) and how his own interest in a show’s fandom brought about the shift.

 Valerie Campbell  Costumer on Gilmore Girls and countless other projects, Valerie has more than one talent to share with us. Not only does she know every detail of just about every item and accessory on set, she is an incredible, insanely wonderful ice cream maker who's going to host an ice cream social while we pick her brain on all things GG and get to hear about her new pictorial Ice Cream Cookbook!

 BRAD ELLIS  We still aren’t sure how we scored this incredibly talented Piano PLayer at the festival. Sitting behind the keyboard on Gilmore Girls, Bunheads, The Marvelous Miss MAisel (and every season of GLEE), Brad is more than a musical genius, he’s also incredibly likable and we can’t wait to introduce you!

 Biff Yeager  Biff, who you know as Tom the contractor, will be in Kent to share his children's book, join the cast panel and to judge the pitch contest.

 Star Herrmann (for Edward)  Gilmore Girls wouldn’t have been the same with Richard and the festival wouldn’t have the same feel without Star sharing his love for this show & His fans. We’re so glad the Herrmann’s will join us again, for the memorial 5K for brain cancer, the costume contest (Ed loved Halloween) & for the premiere of his daughter’s film about his passing.

Often working in theatre these days, this year he can tell you about the play he directed with Vanessa Marano or the one Aris was a part of…or any of the worthwhile projects he’s supported!
