Alexis Bledel Thread #22~Will we ever get to hear her hablar espaņol?


Beautiful banner by Gwen at Alexis Bledel Fan.com

Title: Alexis' first language is Spanish. She learned English in school.

"'She's Gonna Break Soon' has Alexis from the Gilmore Girls acting in it. We met her through a mutual friend at the house we were recording "anthem" at.

What did Amy Sherman-Palladino see in Alexis?

"She's got this angel face. She's just so beautiful. And despite how beautiful she is, Alexis is truly an amazing kid. She's just a good soul. She's got a good heart, and she just doesn't know how good or smart she is.

"She's just a kid. She's so real. There's nothing false that comes out of her. And she is innocent. I was looking for innocence, and that's something that's really hard to find in kids who work. When kids work, they're not so innocent anymore.

"She just is Rory. You'll be talking to her one minute having an adult conversation and someone will bring in an ice cream, and she's like 14 years old. `ICE CREAM!' She's a very special kid."

Yet another great start, Alexis! Surely we should try to add more reasons to love Alexis and Rory... I feel as if 13 and 9 don't reflect how awesome we think she is.

Hi! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

More reasons why we love Rory:
'Cause apparently, she's the biggest virgin in the world. (TBO)

I'm wondering: why is Alexis' mother tongue Spanish? Are her parents Spanish?

Oh, and maybe you want to use the infinitive for the title 'Will we ever get to hear her hablar espaņol'. I mean you would use infinitive if the sentence was fully Spanish 'Vamos a oirla hablar espaņol?' Sorry for geeking around [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img] (Spanish is my mother tongue too)

LOL, I was waiting for someone to correct my grammar. I took 4 years of French and I can barely write in that, Spanish is even more foreign to me.

Updated the Reasons lists, keep em coming!

Does anyone else think Alexis looks like Kate Bosworth in that picture with the dark hair and red top? Just me? [img]smilies/look.gif[/img]

lol, Alexis, same with me and French! It is really mean, while French and Spanish words are really similar, the grammar is partly really different. I have lots of problems when choosing verbs in French...

I don't know who Kate Bosworth is, but Alexis doesn't look like herself in that pic.

In the pics section, row 1, number 2, where is that picture from?

About the Spanish, they had a good chance, there. When Lorelai was writing down what Spanish phrases they needed to know for their trip, they should have had Rory say them in Spanish. Although, the reasoning behind that is probably pretty good, because it'd be weird to all of a sudden have Rory speak perfect Spanish. And I don't think Lauren knows how to, so they'd have to have Rory do it and Lorelai not. Okay, so it was a good idea not to do it.

Early modeling pics, this shot is from the same shoot. I'm not sure which, but I think it was for a teen magazine.

That would have been a good situation for her to speak Spanish in, Sami.
