Lauren Graham Says She’ll “Always Have a Special Bond” With Gilmore Girls Daughter Alexis Bledel, Calls Boyfriend Peter Krause “Perfect”

Alexis Bledel and Lauren Graham in "Gilmore Girls"
Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel played the inseparable mother-daughter duo of Lorelai and Rory Gilmore on Gilmore Girls.

Where Lauren Graham leads, devoted fans will follow, and over the past two decades, the seasoned actress has made a name for herself on two hit TV shows — the now-ended Gilmore Girls and the currently-running Parenthood

In addition to her renowned acting career, Graham, 47, released her debut novel, Someday Someday, Maybe in May 2013. To celebrate the book’s paperback release, she hosted a reddit chat with fans where, naturally, her beloved roles came up. 

When asked how Lorelai Gilmore’s portrayer felt about her on-screen daughter Alexis Bledel, she replied, “Love her, we’ll always have a special bond. Saw her in NY not too long ago. I had a nice lunch with TV mom Kelly [Bishop] and [show creator] Amy [Sherman-Palladino] as well.”

She also revealed that she consumes as much coffee as the Stars Hollow resident — “I drink it all day” — and called love interest and costar Scott Gordon-Patterson (who played diner owner Luke Danes) “an excellent kisser.”

Lauren Graham and the cast of NBC’s Parenthood are currently filming their fifth season.

However, when the inevitable topic of a Gilmore Girls movie came up, she didn’t give fans much hope. 

“I honestly don’t know,” she wrote. “I appreciate how many have asked. That character was so special – I wonder what happens to her too! Yes, IF a movie version could be as good as we’d all want it to be, I’d love to play that character again.”

These days her acting focus lies with her role as the emotionally fragile Sarah Braverman on NBC’s Parenthood. She has been dating costar Peter Krause, who plays her brother Adam Braverman on the show, for more than four years. 

After one fan asked which Parenthood stars were most like their characters, she couldn’t help but brag on her beau, writing, “Hard to say. Dax [Shepard] is an extremely funny guy who is also a super dedicated family man – like Crosby. And Peter is obviously perfect, just like Adam. :)”
