Cornwall Ontario – The Cornwall & Area Pop Event presents Special Guest Yanic Truesdale. He is best known for his memorable role as the sarcastic and high-brow French concierge ‘Michel Gerard’, the character audiences loved to hate by fanatic fans of the cult-classic, feel good family series Gilmore Girls. See Yanic Truesdale on Netflix when the series is rebooted with four highly anticipated episodes: “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” on November 25th 2016.
