Paris Asher
Asher Flemming
(portrayed by Michael York), was a Yale professor and author, who developed a romantic relationship with Paris Geller. The two met through Richard Gilmore, because Asher and Richard went to school together which means they are the same age. Despite the massive age difference, Paris and Asher had a serious relationship throughout Paris and Rory's freshman year of Yale. He died of a heart attack two weeks before Rory and Paris' sophomore year of Yale begins. (5.03) He was teaching a Shakespeare class in Oxford when he had the heart attack. He left Paris an eighteenth-century printing press, which she briefly stored in the common room she shared with Rory.
