Lauren Graham and the Cast of 'Gilmore Girls' Then and Now - Meet Them All

For seven seasons, the Gilmore family made their viewers laugh and cry while living their lives in the small town of Stars Hollow.

"Gilmore Girls" became a fan favorite after showcasing the ups and downs of the Gilmore girls, specifically the mother-daughter-duo, Rory and Lorelai.

For seven seasons, the comedy-drama aired its interesting storyline with multi-generation references and loveable characters, including the supporting cast that helped make the series a success. 

The fame of the show paved the way for a Netflix revival a few years back to pick up from where the story ended. Here's a look at the lives of the "Gilmore Girls" cast today.

LAUREN GRAHAM

After getting pregnant at 16, Lorelai raised her daughter single-handedly and dealt with the everyday struggles of keeping up with her generation, although she was classified under a "cool mom."

The coffee-loving, junk food snacking, quick-talking mom of the year had several more roles, including another television mom show, "Parenthood" alongside Peter Krause from 2010 to 2015.

ALEXIS BLEDEL

"Gilmore Girls" became Alexis Bledel's television debut, projecting a quiet yet smart attitude. Just like her on-screen mom, Rory is caffeine-addicted and quick with her witty replies.
