Alexis Bledel #2 - Can you imagine? Rory Gilmore in a Handmaid's Tale!

Alexis Bledel
a p p r e c i a t i o n t h r e a d
#2




B i o g r a p h y

Kimberly Alexis Bledel was born in Houston, Texas, to Nanette (Dozier) and Martin Bledel. Her parents are both Spanish-speakers (her mother was born in Arizona and raised in Mexico, and her father was born in Argentina), and Alexis's ancestry includes Danish, German, English, Scottish, Irish, and French.

Alexis 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.

Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel aren’t so sure we’ll see any more Gilmore Girls in the future.

The on-screen mother-daughter duo was asked about the possibility considering the success of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, and it sounds like it’s very dependent on what the story would be.

“If it all existed in a vacuum, I would play that character until my dying day… Now it’s become what could we do with this story that is satisfying, that is worth continuing,” Lauren told TVLine.com. “I don’t know if there is a need to do more. I wouldn’t want it to feel like we overstayed our welcome.”

Alexis told the site that it comes down to “what story we’re telling… I’m just interested in telling a story that is dynamic and that I can hook into.”

Hey already a review of the show!
For those interested!

'The Handmaid's Tale' Review | Hollywood Reporter

I haven't read the details, I just searched for the word Bledel haha but very kind words about her!

Quote:
As great as Moss is, evoking pity and empathy and inspiration, she's surrounded by an ensemble of peers. Bledel's occasionally affectless line deliveries are used to deceptive effect, masking what becomes her best and most moving performance to date.
Makes me even more excited!

Another nice little blurb about Alexis in a review.

Quote:
Perhaps the most unexpectedly terrific performance arrives thanks to Alexis Bledel, who plays Ofglen, a wary companion to Offred. Still best known for playing Rory on Gilmore Girls, Bledel has never been better. Many of The Handmaid’s Tale’s darkest moments are reserved for her, and she plays them with a raw immediacy that suggests the worst horrors of dystopian regimes rarely involve death.
