How Connie Britton and Lauren Graham ended up roommates


Before they played two of our favorite TV moms, Connie Britton and Lauren Graham were trying to make it in the entertainment business together.

“We were in the same acting class [in New York City],” Connie Britton told the audience during her panel at New York Magazine’s Vulture Festival on Saturday, “We were in class together, became friends and then we both decided to make the big move and give Los Angles a shot.”

The “Nashville” actress explained that their friend was going through a divorce, so they moved into her empty home.

“Thankfully there were a couple of bedrooms with a couple of beds in them!” she said, adding that living with the “Gilmore Girls” actress was really fun.

“Those are actually really fond memories,” Britton said, “You know, it’s that time when everything’s a possibility and we were just trying to live our dream.”

Britton also roomed with U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand when they were in college together at Dartmouth. They traveled abroad and lived together for a summer in China.

“That was a very interesting experience because I was just a freshman, so going to China … was a very big culture shock and a really amazing learning experience,” she said.
