“Supernatural” star Jared Padalecki had fans shouting from the top of their lungs when he arrived at the 2015 ATX Television Festival during the weekend in celebration of the “Gilmore Girls” 15th anniversary reunion. But before the 32-year-old Texas native partook in the quick-tongued panel, led by the show’s fearless creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, Padalecki hit the red carpet to talk to reporters about where he saw his sweet and shy character now.
Padalecki portrayed Dean Forester on the hit WB series, which ended in 2007. Dean was Rory’s (Alexis Bledel) “perfect first boyfriend” and reoccurring love throughout the series. However, their tumultuous relationship came to a final conclusion after the Doose’s Market employee decided he could never truly fit into Rory’s tailored and overpolished life.
So, what happened to Dean? Well, the tall and hunky actor revealed to reporters he pictured Dean taking over Taylor Doose’s (Michael Winters) business and turning the beloved supermarket into Dean’s Market. How sweet is that?
But it wasn’t Padalecki’s heartwarming answer that had us falling in love with him even more. (Can you say Team Dean?) While talking to a journalist on the red carpet outside Austin's Paramount Theatre, Padalecki’s interview was disrupted when a car blasting some seriously loud music pulled up to check out what all the fuss was about. The actor didn’t let the raging tunes interfere with the interview. Instead, he embraced the music -- with a dance! Although we only managed to capture a small portion of his solid dance moves, we thought this magic moment on the "Gilmore Girls" red carpet was worth sharing with the world.
