Exclusive Interview: David Sutcliffe

Well you guys (and gals) are too smart! DAVID SUTCLIFFE, best known as Christopher on the GILMORE GIRLS is theTVaddict’s next Exclusive Iinterview. I’ll be talking to him this week, and I’d love to get YOUR questions. Please post below anything you think I should be asking! Please note: Angry comments to David for ‘sleeping with Lorelai’ probably won’t be accepted, for that I’ll have to talk to Amy Sherman-Palladino 🙂

In case you’re still trying to decipher my really difficult ‘clues’. David’s connection to the ‘TV White House’ is Teri Polo – they starred together in a really cute ABC sitcom a few years back called I’M WITH HER.

For all the latest TV news and reviews

  • kari

    ok so the obvious question is

    whats going on between him and lorelai

  • Julia

    Is he going to be in the credits? Does it look like he’ll be around all season, or just half?

  • Claire

    Does he want to see a real Chris/Rory story arc?

  • jenny

    ask if hes ever had feelings for lauren graham or if they ever had a thing

  • Lee

    The only thing anyone really cares about is the sleeping with Lorelai thing – so, why bother with an interview at this point in time since he won’t be able to answer anything that fans really care about? The new showrunner likely doesn’t even have the direction for next year completely mapped out. If it is not considered an angry comment, can you ask how he believes his actions will be perceived in that he slept with a friend who must be clearly upset about her engagement ending fight with the one man she says she has ever loved. For me, that is so difficult to comprehend. It seems like a huge problematic issue for their relationship as friend/mother of his daughter.

  • Marie

    Not angry. Just curious. Can Christopher please drop off the face of the earth?

  • Cathy S.

    Does David understand that many fans are simply tired of Christopher coming back to ruin everything between Lorelai and Luke yet again? His character might be more welcome had his appearances involved his daughter, somehow.

  • Jenny

    haha Ouch, you GG fans are vicious!

  • This may sound like an “I hate Chris” rant at first, but I promise that it is not.

    David, your character seemed to change and mature as season six progressed, I’m sure you know that for a large portion of the shows run, Chris seemed to either be loved or hated (usually it was the latter) but he was finally being the friend and father he needed to be and I think fans appreciated that. I for one, never wanted Lorelai and Chris to become romantically involved, but I did like the friendship aspect, and I was extremely happy to see it, especially in the sidekick episode, because there didn’t seem to be any ulterior motives for Chris. I was originally going to ask if you were upset that your character is right back into that season two storyline (you know the Sherry Vs. Lorelai one), but i’m not sure that you see what has been done to your character as a bad thing and i’m not convinced that Lorelai and Chris actually had sex. So my real question is how do you feel about the whole situation?

    And just because I’m sure you are getting as tired as I am of the Lorelai and Chris questions, boxers or briefs? What is your favorite band of all time?

  • Amrie

    What I’d be interested to know is how the writers brought up the final episode with him. Did they give any backstory, reasoning behind why Lorelai showed up? Was there more to it that they were told, as opposed to what we viewers saw?

  • Sandy

    Can you ask David how he sees his character’s growth from when we first met him in season 1? Does he think Sherry will ever try to reassert herself into Christopher and Gigi’s life? Does he think Christopher might be walking his first daughter down the aisle anytime soon? Will *he* ever get a chance to confront the Huntzbergers over their views of and treatment of Rory?

  • Nancy

    Christopher has always been brought into storylines to seemingly complicate Lorelai’s (love) life, which has cast him into the “villian” role on Gilmore Girls, since it seems the majority of fans support a Luke/Lorelai relationship. I’m curious to know what he thinks about playing the villian. Also, since this is presumably the final season of Gilmore Girls, what does he want to have happen to his character (develop a relationship with Rory? Get the girl (Lorelai) he’s been pining for for 22 years? Have a working friendship with Lorelai?, etc.) before the show wraps, and how does he want his character remembered.

    Finally, I would appreciate any insight he has regarding working with any of the Gilmore Girls (Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, or Kelly Bishop).

  • If he’s not booked to appear in every GG episode next season, what is David planning on doing with the rest of his year?

  • Lilah

    David has done a credible job of playing a frivolous, unsympathetic character on Gilmore Girls. How does he handle the unpopularity of his character, has he had any verbal attacks in public by fans who have trouble keeping attached to reality, and does he intend to acquire more substantive roles on future shows? He has played the lightweight for several different networks; is he Canada’s answer to Gig Young?

  • J. Stone

    “Not angry. Just curious. Can Christopher please drop off the face of the earth? ”

    I completely agree.

  • Angela

    What storylines would you like to see developed for Christopher in the seventh season? Are there any regrets that you have about Christopher’s development as a character?

  • Babette

    Can’t you find another gig before September? Please?

  • melanie

    I know he doesn’t know the direction the new showrunner will take, but was the original reason he was asked to return for season 7 because ASP was finally going to put to rest any romantic future with Lorelai? Will Chris repair his relationship with Rory? When Luke and Lorelai are reunited, was part of the game plan that Chris and Luke could forge a friendship for the sake of the girls? Is his contract for 13 episodes only or is it open-ended and he’ll be around for the entire season? How does he feel that many fans don’t want to see him return to GG?

    From the upfronts in May, it looked like the cast of GG is close. Is that true? Can he give any anecdotes about some of the other people on the show?

  • j-dog

    Dear Marie and J.Stone,
    Show some consideration please and act like an adult. There is no reason for such disgusting statements on your part.

  • Elizabeth

    Since I have Christopher issues, but not David issues, I was wondering what other upcoming projects we can look forward to?

  • Elissa


    I know it looks this way bades on the previous comments above but I am not alone when I say I Love christopher. Luke he’s cool but he and lorelai are better as friends who flirt b/c that’s what they do. my question is do you think It’ll ever be truly the same gilmore girls without Dan and Amy. Because to me it seems impossible.

  • Debbie

    Has David had any meetings or conversations with the new GG showrunner Dave Rosenthal? Obviously Amy Sherman-Palladino had plans for his character but based on the overwhelmingly negative response of the fans and critics to the Christopher character in the season finale, perhaps the new showrunner will rethink the Christopher story line. I believe that many of the fans would enjoy watching the Christopher character struggle to develop a real relationship with Rory.

    Perhaps I speak only for myself, but I will not watch Gilmore Girls if there is any, I mean any attempt to rekindle a romantic relationship between Lorelai and Christopher. For me, Christopher with Lorelai is the death of the Gilmore Girls that I loved.

  • Lola

    I think that David is a great actor, I just don’t like his character. He does a great job of portraying the ‘villan’. I would like to know what he thinks of this ‘Chris/Luke/Lorelai’ love-triange scenario.

  • Kait

    I’m curious to know how DS feels about Christopher’s relationship with Rory on the show. Does he feel that his very strained relationship with his daughter can be salvaged and that Christopher can find a comfortable place in both Rory and Lorelai’s lives without having to be WITH Lorelai.

  • emmphx

    What other plans does David have? Was he slated to appear in the never-came-to-life Palladino “Nick and Nora” Redux sitcom?

    PS Elissa: I happen to live in Jenna Jameson’s neighborhood. She’s a very nice woman doing a heck of a job with the assets she has, taking advantage of a moral weakness in the male of the species. That you would find degradation of women and taking advantage of the moral weakness of men something admirable, well that’s sad.

    PPS Elissa: Spell check is your friend…maybe you should ask your mommy or daddy how to use it. Unless your Daddy is like the “Christopher” character on GG — i.e. a deadbeat — then I hope your Mom has a “Luke” in her life!

    I’d like to know if he thinks Lorelai would really be happy if she were to marry Christopher. (Ugh – just typing that made me throw up a little in my mouth.)

    PS Elissa – JJ’s have a response to each and every item on your list and then some … but I’ll refrain from going there, because if I did, my post would be excessively long. But regarding #13, I’ll just say this: And Lorelai’s response was an emphatic “NO!” … TWICE! Thank God.

    Elissa, I see you skipped over No. 295. The Moment when Lorelai woke up and realized she made the biggest mistake of her life.

  • Catie

    Does DS really think that anything can come from a lorelai and Chris reationship at this point?

    and the big question:
    Who does he honestly think is best for Lorelai: Chris or Luke?

    also, is his contract AT LEAST 13 eps, or UP TO 13 eps?

    and lastly, does he know any of the plan for next year?

    Has David and the rest of the cast met with the new showrunner and execs? is there a chance that the original plans for the show (plotlines, contracts, etc) will change with the move to the new network? and um.. red vines or twizzlers?

  • Sheila

    Do you think its ok for fathers to treat their child the way Chris treated Rory by only seeing her when he had a chance to get into bed with Lorelai?
    What do you think of DR?
    Elissa thats not what this is for so leave your comments out of this.

  • David do you think Chris has a romantic future with Lorelai and if so how long.

    I know it’s an imposable question to answer as the new show runner is probably only just now working out how he wants the season to start, let alone end.

  • Kristin

    What qualities does he find appealing about the character of Christopher? I can’t think of any myself, but, hey, maybe I’m missing something.

    Does he truly think that Lorelai deserves to be in a relationship with someone who doesn’t show his elder daughter love? (I don’t think we’ve ever heard Christopher tell Rory that he loves her.)

    P.S. #294 on that list posted above is absolutely HILARIOUS. I don’t think I’ve ever had that look on my face after waking up next to the man I love. That look had nothing “loving” about it; Lorelai obviously was not thrilled with where she was and why she was there. I think Lorelai and Christopher fans are grasping at straws. Lorelai said it herself, she never loved Christopher. That fact and her look says it all.

    What is your favorite memory of being on the Gilmore Girls set?

  • Camilla

    David, I’m one of the actual fans of Chris’ character and always has been. While I do like Luke and Lorelai together, something about Christopher and Lorelai’s relationship have always got to me. Their strong connection and love that shows through the screen. It may only be first love, it may not be. My main question is this: Do you think that what Lorelai and Chris share is true love or just first love that you’re bound to move on from?

  • Zut

    I’m not afraid to admit this, but i don’t like the character of Christopher at all. Davd, i respect you for being able to lay such a horrible guy (in my eyes) and i think you are a fantastic actor. My question is, since it seems that Christopher is coming back next season, “Is you character always going to be used as a plot device between Luke and Lorelai, is he actually going to have a relationship with his daughter, or do you not know at this point in time?”

  • babygirrr

    David, I am also a huge fan of yours. I also have a love for the Chris/Lor relationship.. I happen to think it is more real of how a relationship works when their is a child involved. You never close that door. I just wanted to say I am very glad you are back and would love to see you more! Do you know what is in store for your character this season?

  • mozz

    David, you and Matt Czuchry are the reasons that I even started watching Gilmore Girls and am now catching up on DVD. I love your portrayal of Christopher and always look forward to seeing him in episodes. I have a few questions: 1) Which episode of Gilmore Girls that you’ve starred in has been your favorite, and why? 2) Who is your dream co-star, and what kind of film/show do you envision the two of you in? 3) How do you prepare for a role? How have you prepared for playing Christopher?

    Thanks. I’m very much looking forward to seeing you on TV again this fall!

  • Kay

    I seriously do want to know what DS thinks about Christopher’s “endearing qualities.” It would be nice to hear it from the actor’s mouth, because I find nothing endearing about Christopher. Maybe he can show me a new perspective.

    To the “tv addict” – For you to delete my question only shows that you are being a little biased. There was a list posted above that doesn’t have a question attached to it – therefore, should it really be considered for the interview? Especially considering it is full of skewed information. (Such as “waking up next to the man she loves,” because the last episode proved that Lorelai wasn’t in love with Christopher). The fact that you allowed that to be considered but you deleted a legitimate question like mine doesn’t speak too highly of your so-called “unbiased” opinion. Just so you know.

  • Before you answer my big question, do you know the process of how United 93 was made? (IE: All the method acting that went into it, all of the effort the director put into it trying to please the world)? If not please read about it. It’s something I can respect, especially as a theater junkie, a stage manager, an actor and as an American. Anyway, what is your opinion on the movie? (Please do not say it is too soon.)

    Hi David,

    I am a huge fan of Chris. I feel you play him with wonderful depth and strength of character. I feel that over the past 6 seasons both the writting and your performance have shown Chris to be Lorelai’s intellectual equal, the person who best understands who she is, and the person who can banter with her and appreciate and get her references. He is a guy who is never cold or distant with her; he is warm and loving. He is also a guy with a fun side, who is forever the gentleman, and also is charming and respectful of everyone. Yet, he also understands his own shortcomings and has regret for his actions regrading his absence and such over the years in Rory and Lorelai’s lives. Chris has been shown to be a deep and compelling character with complexities. You have brought this character to life. You have portrayed him with a brilliant vibrancy and texture. As well, as being a fan of Chris, as is already evident, I’m a total fan of the Chris and Lorelai romance and totally absorbing love story! You and Lauren have the most phenomenal chemistry ever on TV! Chris and Lor are perfect for one another. I feel they have a connection that is rare and profound. They make each other whole. I feel being with Chris is where Lorelai’s life needs to be headed in order for the show to end on a poignant and touching note.

    I would like to know, do you feel that Chris is the man to whom Lorelai is best suited? In your portrayal of him, has it been your intent to show Chris as Lorelai’s soulmate?

    Thanks again for your super work as Chris! And Happy Birthday for the 8th of June!
