Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life was filled with cameos from Sutton Foster to Mae Whitman and everyone in between—but there was one cameo you probably missed: Rose Abdoo. Yes, she was back as Stars Hollow mechanic Gypsy, but the actress pulled double duty in the Gilmore Girls revival by playing Emily's (Kelly Bishop) maid, Berta.

"Rose read it for fun in a table read because they hadn't cast it yet," series star Lauren Graham confirmed on Twitter, "and she was so hilarious they had to double her up!"

TVLine first pointed out Abdoo's dual roles.

Abdoo's Berta is the first maid to stick it out with Emily Gilmore…pretty much ever. She was with her through the whole year and Emily eventually welcomed Berta's entire family into both her homes in Hartford and Nantucket. Emily even cared for her.

Abdoo's other TV credits include The Comeback, Parenthood, Veep, Scandal and Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino's Bunheads. Over Gilmore Girls' original run Abdoo appeared in 23 episodes as Gypsy.

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life brought back all your favorite faces including Graham, Bishop, Alexis Bledel, Jared Padalecki, Matt Czcuchry, Milo Ventimiglia, Scott Patterson, Keiko Agena, Melissa McCarthy, Yanic Truesdale, Liza Weil, Danny Strong and many more. Newcomers besides Foster and Whitman included Christian Borle, Alex Kingston, Jason Ritter and Peter Krause.

All four episodes of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life are now streaming on Netflix.
