Lauren Graham: Then

Lauren Graham played the fast-talking, coffee loving Lorelai Gilmore. Mum to Rory Gilmore, Lorelai's storylines revolved around her childhood sweetheart Christopher, Luke from the diner and her relationship with her daughter Rory. She also has a fairly dysfunctional relationship with her mother, Emily, to put it mildly.

Lauren Graham: Now

Gilmore Girls was Lauren Graham's big break and it landed her a few film roles; Bad Santa, The Pacifier, Because I Said So, and Evan Almighty. She also starred on Broadway in the revival of Guys and Dolls.
In 2009 Lauren replaced Maura Tierney in the television series Parenthood as single mother Sarah Braverman. The show ran for six seasons and ended in January 2015.
If that wasn't enough, she's also been on the New York Times best seller list. Graham's debut novel, Someday, Someday, Maybe: A Novel was based on her experiences in the New York acting scene in the mid-1990s. Her second book, Talking as Fast as I Can: from Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls (and Everything in Between) is coming out on 29 November 2016.
Interestingly, Lauren was roommates with Nashville's Connie Britton, and dated Matthew Perry in 2002. Nowadays she's happily loved up with her Parenthood costar Peter Krause.

Alexis Bledel: Then

Alexis Bledel played the uber smart Rory Gilmore, the daughter of Lorelai. As well as being very studious, Rory had her pick of the fellas. Whether you were rooting for her childhood sweetheart Dean, bad boy Jess or her college boyfriend Logan, she definitely had her fair share of boy drama.

Alexis Bledel: Now

Gilmore Girls was Alexis Bledel's first big role. In 2005 she starred in very different roles, as a traitorous hooker in the comic book adaptation, Sin City and in the heartwarming drama The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, opposite Amber Tamblyn, America Ferrera, and Blake Lively. The girls are still friends to this day, and made a sequel.
In 2009, Alexis guest-starred in the hit medical drama ER in the two-hour series finale as Dr. Julia Wise, a new intern to the hospital. You might also recognise her from three episodes of Mad Men.
Back in 2013 she signed up for Friends & Family, an adaptation of our beloved Gavin & Stacey TV show. Alexis was supposed to play Stacey but the show got cancelled before going to air.
Romantically, Alexis dated her Gilmore Girls co-star Milo Ventimiglia from 2002 to 2006. Then in 2012, she started dating her Mad Men co-star Vincent Kartheiser. The pair are now married and have a baby boy.
Prepare to be shocked with this news - Alexis hates coffee, so every time you saw her sipping on a cup of joe, it was actually Coke.

Liza Weil: Then

Liza Weil played the seriously uptight Paris Geller. At first she was Rory's school arch nemesis, and then she somehow turned in to her best friend, and they even lived together during college. You shouldn't love Paris, but you do.

Liza Weil: Now

Liza Weil was originally considered for the role of Rory Gilmore before Alexis Bledel won the role; the character of Paris Geller was created especially for Liza.
After Gilmore Girls Liza Weil starred as White House aide Amanda Tanner in the first season of Scandal. She obviously impressed the creator of the show, Shonda Rimes, because she was chosen to play attorney Bonnie Winterbottom in How to Get Away with Murder.
Liza has a daughter with fellow actor Paul Adelstein to whom she was married to. Liza filed for divorce in March 2016.

Matt Czuchry: Now

After Gilmore Girls Matt Czuchry went on to star in Friday Night Lights as a religious teenager, and then landed another huge TV role. Yep, from 2009 to 2016, he played the role of young, ambitious Harvard-educated lawyer Cary Agos on The Good Wife.
If you're keen to know about his personal life, you've got to dig. Years ago he dated actress Kate Bosworth but Matt keeps his personal life very personal, though it would appear that he's single right now.

Scott Patterson: Then

Scott Patterson played Luke, the owner of the local diner. Stars Hollow was a small town, and everyone headed to Luke's for breakfast, lunch and dinner. He must have made a killing. Lorelai and Luke had insane chemistry and their relationship definitely had obstacles.

Scott Patterson: Now

As well as starring on Gilmore Girls for seven years, Scott also had a profound effect on Grace in the "Das Boob" episode of Will & Grace.
He has also starred as Agent Strahm in two of the Saw franchise movies.
Before his stint on the telly, Scott Patterson played professional in minor league baseball.
Sadly, in real life Scott and Lauren Graham weren't exactly BFFs. "It's fine," she told TV Guide of her relationship with him. "I think these characters have great chemistry and that does mirror our chemistry as people. We're not intimates." In fact, when asked if she and Patterson are "best friends," Graham gave a very simple "No."

Sean Gunn: Then

Sean Gunn played the ever so annoying Kirk. He was the source of amusement for the residents of Stars Hollow and often wound people up.

Vanessa Marano: Then

Vanessa Marano played Luke's long lost daughter April Nardini. Her school science project consisted of a paternity test which resulted in Luke finding out that he had a daughter. Unfortunately this is the reason why his relationship with Lorelai broke down, and resulted in April being the most hated kid on telly.

Vanessa Marano: Now

April, is that you? The girl's all grown up and she looks... fabulous.
Vanessa Marano was already a huge fan of Gilmore Girls when she joined the cast at 13 years old, and since then her career has gone from strength-to-strength.
She has starred on Ghost Whisperer, Grey's Anatomy and The Young and the Restless. In recent years she has starred as Bay Kennish on Switched at Birth. She will be returning to Stars Hollow for the revival and revealed to Teen Vogue some juicy details. She said April is "still quirky and weird, which I think is great. She’s an adult now. I’ve graduated college when we see her. So she’s kind of figuring out who she is as an adult. I think she went to MIT, and is still the super weird mathematician scientist who lacks a little bit in social skills. But that’s what we love about her!."

Krysten Ritter: Then

She even paid for Rory's studies. Thanks to Friday Night Dinners, Emily Gilmore and Lorelai try and build bridges - but not without a few put-downs.

Kelly Bishop will always be known for the scathing role of Emily Gilmore, and for playing Baby's mum in Dirty Dancing.

Keiko Agena: Then

Keiko Agena played Lane Kim, a Korean-American teenager who was the best friend of Rory Gilmore. With a strict mum, Lane felt trapped when she discovered that she wanted to play the drums in a rock band. It's lucky that she did, because she ended up meeting her future husband and having twins.
BTW, true fans of the show were disappointed in the storyline - they wanted her to be a rockstar, not a stay-at-home mum.

The affair did not last.

David Sutcliffe: Then

David Sutcliffe played Christopher, Lorelai's childhood sweetheart and the father of their daughter, Rory. On paper he was the perfect man for Lorelai, but she couldn't deny her feelings for Luke. Also, Christopher was an unreliable asshat.

He played war veteran and SSR agent Jack Thompson in the Marvel series Agent Carter, and has also had starring roles in the films Freaky Friday alongside Lindsay Lohan, A Cinderella Story alongside Hillary Duff, and House of Wax with Paris Hilton.
He co-wrote a romance novel with actress Heather Graham. Random, huh? He's reportedly working on a new novel as we speak.

He has dated lots of his co-stars since, but has recently settled down with his co-star on Chosen. Chad and Sarah Roemer are engaged, and have one child.

Adam Brody played the ever so sweet Dave Rygalski. He played in a band and fell for Lane - though he had to sweet talk her mum first. He ended up pretending that he played in a church band to get brownie points. It worked.

tiny.gif

Adam Brody: Now

We'll always have a soft spot for Adam Brody. He left Gilmore Girls because he got a better offer - playing Seth Cohen on The O,C. This led to a love affair that would last for approximately five years, and resulted in him being described as TV's sexiest geek.
He has appeared in many films, including Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Jennifer's Body, In the Land of Women, Cop Out, and Scream 4.
In 2011 he appeared in The Oranges alongside Leighton Meester, who is now his wife and the mother of their daughter Arlo. Before Leighton, he was famously involved with Rachel Bilson, his co-star on The O.C.

Yanic Truesdale: Then

Yanic Truesdale played Lorelai's right-hand man at the Inn, grumpy French concierge Michel Gerard. He worked with Lorelai and Sookie at the inn, and his words were sharp as a knife. The show hinted that Michel was gay, but never confirmed it. We did know that he was constantly on a diet - remember when he drank full-fat milk instead of skinny milk? It was like the end of the world.

Melissa McCarthy: Now

Where do we start? Melissa McCarthy is without a doubt the most successful of the Gilmore Girls cast. She dominates the big roles in Hollywood, she took on the remake of Ghostbusters, she created a fashion line catering for plus size women, and she founded her own production company.
Immediately after Gilmore Girls Melissa starred as Dena on the TV sitcom Samantha Who? and took the lead in another, Mike and Molly. for six seasons But it was 2011's hit comedy Bridesmaids that catapulted her to A-list territory. Since then, she starred in the action comedy film Spy, The Boss and Ghostbusters.

Milo Ventimiglia: Then

Milo Ventimiglia played the brooding bad boy Jess Mariano who fell for Rory Gilmore. Jess was sent to Stars Hollow by his mum, who thought time with his uncle, Luke, would straighten him out. Did it work? After some time, definitely.

tiny.gif

Milo Ventimiglia: Now

Oh man, there was supposed to be a Gilmore Girls spin-off all about Jess, but it never aired. Milo signed on for the show - titled Windward Circle - and it was supposed to focus on the relationship between Jess and his estranged father (played by Rob Estes).
Not to worry, we've had plenty of Milo Ventimiglia air-time. He's been on Heroes, and in mid-2007 he starred as the love interest of singer Fergie in the music video for Big Girls Don't Cry.
We've already told you that he dated his Gilmore Girls co-star Alexis Bledel for a few years - hopefully it wasn't awkward when they had to film scenes together for the new Gilmore Girls series.
Ventimiglia also dated his Heroes co-star Hayden Panettiere from December 2007 to February 2009. It would appear that he's single right now.Credit Getty Images
