Eventually, Lauren Graham and Peter Krause decided to act on their feelings and took things to the next step. “Once we got together, there was no game play,” Graham said (via Good Housekeeping), adding that they were pretty upfront about their feelings. “It was like, You like me, and I like you. It gave me an understanding of life: This is how things happen, and it’s completely random,” she said.
The transition was seamless, with Graham adding that the simple things about their relationship gave her the most joy. “I didn’t imagine the simple routines and jokes over them would be so fulfilling,” she expressed. Their shared acting profession also helped immensely, as they constantly found themselves on the same page. “At our age we’d probably been through ‘showmances’ that went south and made work an uncomfortable place to be,” Graham wrote in her memoir, “Talking As Fast As I Can” (via the Daily Mail). “Ultimately our mutual wariness gave way.”
