I was talking to my grandmother about the troubles with GG getting an 8th season, most of it having to do with Alexis not wanting to be an actress anymore and Lauren stating she wouldn't do the show without Alexis. Then she brought up if Rory was played by a different actress and somehow Lauren agreed to that as long as there were many scenes with Rory and the actress looked alot like Alexis, would I watch it? I thought it would be an interesting topic to bring up here.

No way!
People already freaked out about Mia being played by a different actress, can you even imagine if Rory was played by someone else?

I definately wouldn't watch if Rory was played by someone other then Alexis, I concidered not watching if Alexis left actually so if they brought in another Actresses I DEFINATELY wouldn't watch! I hate recasting more then just taking out a character especially when its a big character like Rory! When there was all this talk going around about an "option 2" if Alexis didn't sign, I was soooooooo relieved that they didn't suggest bringing in another actresses. I absoltuley adore Lauren for sticking by Alexis and not continuing without her!

Rory's far from my favorite character on the show, but I wouldn't watch if someone else played the character.  I hate it when tv shows do that...

im not really sure. i guess sience we got used to seeing lauren and alexis, that it would be hard to see someone else, and i would not watch if they got someone different to do the 8th season....but if someone else played rory in the first episode ever i think that i would maybe love the show this much, because if she could not keep up with lauren(fast talk) then why watch??...

Absolutely NOT! I don't know how shows get away with doing that... I mean.. what if one day I just went away and said.. well shes my new replacement... call her Ashley. My family wouldn't accept that... and doing that with an actress is the same thing... unacceptable.

I wouldn't watch it if another actress played Rory..  there's chemistry there with her and the cast, and I absolutely hate when characters change actors/actresses.  I know it's something that can't be helped, but it just bugs me.

No, It wouldn't be gilmore girls.
If they had changed her after like one season then yeah, maybe people would accept it. But 7 years of the same actress then suddenly a different one would not work. Alexis is Rory.

Yeah, it is so strange when shows do that. It would definently not be the same. I might watch it in the beginning but it would be too weird....

here are my thoughts on this....

Alexis was made for this part! She has really progressed as an actress through GG. Alexis plays the Rory that we all have loved through these [almost] 7 years of GG. We have grown to love her more and more...and without her on GG wouldn't make it right, expecially if someone else played her part. We are used to Alexis and nobody can play Rory like her. Alexis is the only person right for the part! It's wierd to think that she was sick when she auditioned too, but she seemed to be so perfect for the part. My point is that nobody can ever replace Alexis in this part and I personally would not watch it if someone did.
