Since 2017, she has appeared in the Hulu drama series The Handmaid's Tale.
Before her work in that film, Bledel was an uncredited extra in the 1998 comedy-drama Rushmore.
In 2005, she co-starred in the drama The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, opposite Amber Tamblyn, America Ferrera, and Blake Lively, and based on Ann Brashares' novel of the same name.
Fans everywhere cheered for Dean to win in the end, but he seemed to be the one who got away, at least in the series.
The chemistry between Rory and Dean was undeniable on-screen, so it’s not surprising to hear that these two were canoodling in real life, too.
Of her parents' upbringing in Latin America, Bledel has stated "It's the only culture my mom knows from life, and my father as well, and they made the decision to raise their children within the context they had been raised in".
She played Rory Gilmore, the daughter of Lorelai Gilmore (Graham), a single mother.
There had already been two Deans cast before we found him,” she says.
“But there is something about Jared.” Alexis also had chemistry with resident bad boy Jess, played by Milo Ventimiglia.
The two publicly dated for three and a half years before calling it quits in 2006.
With all the romancing on set, casting director Mara Casey said, “We did have a joke about casting all of Alexis’ [real-life] boyfriends… And she also dated a young New York actor named Chris Heuisler, who played a guest role.” We can’t wait to see who Rory is dating in the return!
It turns out that Alexis Bledel, who played Rory Gilmore in the original series and reprises her role in the new Netflix episodes, was secretly dating co-star Jared Padalecki.
