Birth Name
Kimberly Alexis Bledel

5' 7" (1.70 m)

Houston, Texas native Alexis Bledel made her television debut in "Gilmore Girls" (2000), after spending years in front of the camera as a model. Bledel's parents encouraged her to try community theater in Houston when she was 8 years old, hoping it would help their daughter overcome her shyness. She went on to perform in productions of Our Town, The Wizard of Oz and Aladdin, and later was scouted in a local mall to model. She began her modeling career while still in high school, traveling all over to locations like Tokyo, Milan, New York and Los Angeles. After graduating, she enrolled at NYU as a film major. In the Spring of 2000, Bledel landed a manager through her modeling agency and headed to Los Angeles for her first pilot season, where she quickly landed the coveted role of Rory on "Gilmore Girls" (2000). When she's not working, Bledel enjoys writing, reading, shooting photography, going to the movies and spending time with her family.

I like her. She's pretty. I was kind of surprised to see her in Bride and Prejudice as Darcy's younger sister, but when she and Aishwarya were talking to each other in that last scene, I noticed that they look pretty similar.

Anyway, I think she has talent. I like her. But the thing is, I read in a magazine interview that she doesn't take her acting very seriously as she's really more of a model. I didn't like that. The interview lady was like "How seriously do you take your job." and Alexis was like "Not very." I just don't like that about her.

I can't stand Gilmore Girls. It was pretty cool when she got her throat bit out in Sin City though.
