Gilmore Girls cast then and now: Age, relationship statuses, net worth, latest updates

Gilmore Girls is an American comedy-drama television series starring Alexis Bledel and Lauren Graham. The series created shockwaves worldwide, with critics praising it for its witty dialogue, cross-generational appeal, and compelling mix of humour and drama. The show ran for seven seasons, and during this time, millions of people fell in love with the story and the Gilmore Girls cast. When the final episode aired in 2007, many fans were sad to see their favourite characters go.

The Gilmore Girls series had two protagonists, Lorelai Gilmore and her daughter Rory. Lorelai got pregnant with her daughter at sixteen by her childhood boyfriend and became alienated from the family. She moved with her daughter to a close-knit town where they lived until Rory was sixteen. The show focuses on the girls’ ambitions in life.

While the story and the show's writing were great, the actors gave the show the wow factor. They brought such life to their characters that most of them are still known by their character’s names over ten years since the show ended. As a result, its status as a 2000s American cult classic was well earned.

What is the cast up to now?

In 2016, the original ensemble (those who were available) and some additional cast came together to film a miniseries released on Netflix. Gilmore Girls: a year in the life cast consisted of the original cast of Gilmore Girls except for Edward Herrmann.

The Gilmore Girls cast is one of the most well put ensembles that have graced screens, and their chemistry on screen was visible. They were fan favourites while on the show, and when it ended, their fans have kept up with them. So, as the show that premiered in 2000 rings in twenty-one years, let's find out what happened to the cast of Gilmore Girls.

Alexis made her mark in the entertainment industry with the role of Rory Gilmore, who was one of the main characters of the show. Since the show ended in 2007, she has played several significant roles. She played Emily Malek in The Handmaid’s Tale and even won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series for her performance.

How old was Alexis Bledel when she played Rory? When the series began, Alexis was 19 years old and played the sixteen-year-old Rory.

Does Rory tell Logan she is pregnant? No, she did not. The original finale in 2007 ended when Rory turned down Logan’s proposal. In the 2016 revival, they got back together when Rory cheated on her boyfriend with Logan. She got pregnant, and the show left its viewers on a cliffhanger, with Rory only informing her mother that she was pregnant.
