Bringing the beloved character of the caffeine-obsessed bookworm Rory Gilmore to life in the cult dramedy “Gilmore Girls,” Alexis Bledel captured the hearts of legions of viewers in the early aughts. Over the years, her quick-witted, fast-talking iconic role has only gained more popularity as the show reached global audiences when it landed on Netflix. That eventually led to the 2016 four-part revival, “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.” The reboot further cemented Amy Sherman-Palladino‘s brainchild as a quintessential nostalgia watch. The “Remember Sunday” actor has since moved on to appear in several movies and shows, including her Emmy-winning portrayal of Emily Malek in the highly acclaimed drama “The Handmaid’s Tale,” a role she sadly won’t be reprising for the upcoming season. Though the 40-year-old has been in the public eye for more than two decades, she values her privacy when it comes to her personal and romantic lives. Case in point: Bledel kept it under wraps when she and her then-spouse, Vincent Kartheiser, secretly welcomed their son in 2015. And now, the couple have quietly split after eight years of marriage, it was just revealed in August.
