Saskatoon-born David Sutcliffe has returned to Stars Hollow as the Gilmore Girls revival premieres on Netflix.
“I’m consistently reminded how fortunate I was to be able to work on a show of that high quality,” Sutcliffe told CBC Radio’s Saskatoon Morning.

Sutcliffe played Christopher Hayden, Rory’s absentee father, who Sutcliffe says was a character some fans loved to hate.
“But I think essentially he was a good guy and a well-meaning guy who was just a bit overwhelmed by the situation.”
Seven years after the show’s original run ended, Sutcliffe says the Netflix reboot gives Gilmore Girls a chance to be more relaxed and provides the writers more creative freedom since they don’t have to work around commercial breaks.
As the character usually did, Christopher’s appearance will be a bit contentious, Sutcliffe hinted.
He said he’s just glad to be working on such a good show once again.
“If you had told me when I got started in this business that I was going to end up being a part of something that had this kind of impact, I would have been really, really happy about it.”
Sutcliffe also starred opposite Teri Polo in the comedy series, I’m With Her, as well as guesting on such shows as Friends, Will and Grace, Private Practice, The Division, Drop Dead Diva, and Lie to Me.
He played Aidan Black in CBC’s Cracked, a police and medical drama.
Sutcliffe also starred in several made for television movies, including: Murder in the Hamptons, On Strike for Christmas, Before You Say I Do, and The Wish List.
