Ahead of the anticipated “Gilmore Girls” reunion at the 2015 ATX Television Festival, we’re looking back to see where your favorite Stars Hollow resident are now and what they’ve been up to since the beloved seven-season series created by Amy Sherman-Palladino ended in 2007.
Lauren Graham (Lorelai Gilmore)
Since the dramedy concluded, Graham went on to take on the role of another cherished TV mom: Sarah Braverman in the NBC series “Parenthood.” The long-running drama aired its final season in January 2015.
Graham is back on TV after recently snagging a guest role on CBS’ “The Odd Couple” reboot, portraying Oscar’s (Matthew Perry) ex-wife Gaby.
Alexis Bledel (Rory Gilmore)
Since snagging a job as a journalist on Barack Obama’s presidential campaign trail, Bledel has been busy building friendships on “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” and ruining marriages as a mistress on “Mad Men.”
Scott Patterson (Luke Danes)
Everyone’s favorite baseball cap-sporting cook has had a booming career since “Gilmore Girls.” He’s appeared in the 2008 film “Aliens in America,” starred in the short-lived NBC series “The Event” and in Lifetime’s 2015 drama “Kidnapping: The Hannah Anderson Story.”
But Patterson is also interested in a career outside of acting, which is why he’s taken up painting and photography.
“Summer of 2006 I really needed to have some sort of creative outlet other than acting so I started painting again,” he told Us Weekly. “I converted my garage into an art studio and just painted all summer. And then I took up photography.”
Melissa McCarthy (Sookie St. James)
McCarthy went from Lorelai's trusty sidekick to her own leading lady since “Gilmore Girls” ended. The actress was nominated for a Golden Globe for her side-splitting role in “Bridesmaids,” earned an Emmy for her CBS sitcom “Mike & Molly” and has wooed critics with her upcoming film “Spy,” which she is current promoting.
Jared Padalecki (Dean Forester)
Padalecki transitioned from bagging groceries at Doose’s Market to bagging bad guys in the successful CW series “Supernatural” as Sam Winchester, which recently ended it’s 10th season.
Milo Ventimiglia (Jess Mariano)
Ventimiglia has evolved from Stars Hollow’s bad boy to a powerful, super-human in “Heroes.” But currently Rory’s former flame stars in the hit ABC series “The Whispers.” Fans can also see the shaggy-haired hottie in the Fox drama, “Gotham,” as Jason Lennon/The Ogre.
Matt Czuchry (Logan Huntzberger)
After having his proposal denied by Rory in the final season of “Gilmore Girls,” the actor went on to pursue even more drama, starring in the critically acclaimed CBS series “The Good Wife” as Cary Agos.
Keiko Agena (Lane Kim)
The music-loving character put her beloved records away to pursure a new passion: acting. Agena has made appearances in ABC Family series "Twisted," and on both "Shameless" and "Scandal."
Liza Weil (Paris Geller)
Weil went from playing the quick-tongued and seriously smart Paris Geller to portraying the complicated character Bonnie Winterbottom in the Shonda Rhimes series “How to Get Away With Murder.” She also appeared in the ABC drama “Scandal.”
Danny Strong (Doyle McMaster)
Strong has put his journalistic skills to the test -- and it looks like they’re paying off! The actor, who took on Paris’ boyfriend in “Gilmore Girls,” is a writer and director for the breakout Fox TV series “Empire.” He’s also appeared in “Justified,” “Girls,” “Mad Men” and “The Butler.”
Stay tuned for more updates on your favorite “Gilmore Stars”! The cast will reunite during Season 4 of the ATX Television Festival in Austin on Saturday, June 6, and the International Business Times will be there to get all the scoop on your Stars Hollow favorites.
