Where you lead, I will follow … ”. If you read this phrase singing it and with its song in your head, surely you are a fan of Gilmore Girls. The series —which in the early 2000s and for seven seasons made many women envy the mother-daughter relationship between Lorelai and Rory— is about to turn twenty years since its premiere (yes, seriously, two decades).
We got nostalgic, and while a couple of years ago we got to see the revival of this series (and we caught up with what was going on in the lives of the Gilmore girls and the inhabitants of Stars Hollow), we also wanted to know what has happened in the real life of each of them in these twenty years. Except for one, the entire original cast mentioned in this list participated in the miniseries. As a final bonus, you can see the reunions that the actors have had in recent years.
1. Lauren Graham (Lorelai Gilmore)
Lauren Graham played the talkative young mother of this duo. After the end of Gilmore Girls, she participated in some movies and other television series such as Parenthood. Currently, we can see her in the role of Joan in Zoe’s Extraordinary Playlist. She has also provided her voice for the film Burger Rain and the animated series Vampirina. Soon, she will star in the series inspired by the movie The Champions. Additionally, Lauren is a successful writer with three published books.
2. Alexis Bledel (Rory Gilmore)
At 19 years of age, Alexis made her television debut playing the other half of this duo: the innocent, smart and dedicated student Rory Gilmore. She is also well known in her role as Lena in the two installments of Inseparable Friends and has confirmed her participation in the third film of the saga. In addition, we have seen her in other programs such as Mad Men and in The Handmaid’s Tale, a role for which she won her first Emmy in 2017.
3. Keiko Agena (Lane Kim)
Lane is Rory’s best friend and the relationship with her strict mother was the complete opposite of what the protagonists lived. Regardless, we saw her form her rock band, fall in love, and get married on the show. After leaving Stars Hollow, we got to see Agena on shows like Thirteen Reasons Why, Dirty John, and Better Call Saul. Currently, the actress plays Dr. Edrisa Tanaka in the series Prodigal Son.
4. Scott Patterson (Luke Danes)
The owner of the cafe that the girls always went to – and eventually Lorelai’s soul mate – was played by Scott Patterson, and he apparently enjoyed his role so much that he founded his own coffee company called Scotty P’s Big Mug Coffee. . As for his acting career, we could see him in three of Saw’s installments as Detective Strahm and in television series such as The Event and Aliens in America. Currently, he has three other projects on the horizon and also has his rock and blues band called Smith Radio.
5. Yanic Truesdale (Michel Gerard)
The sarcastic janitor at the Dragonfly hostel was played by Canadian actor Yanic Truesdale. After the series ended, in 2011, he returned to his native Montreal and owns a spinning gym. In Canada, he continues to act mainly in series and films for television.
