Alexis BledelAKA Kimberly Alexis Bledel

Born: 16-Sep-1981
Birthplace: Houston, TX

Gender: Female
Race or Ethnicity: Hispanic
Sexual orientation: Straight
Occupation: Actor

Nationality: United States
Executive summary: Rory on Gilmore Girls

Alexis Bledel was painfully shy as a child, and her parents enrolled her in acting classes, gently nudging her toward performing in local stage productions, hoping to bring her out of her shell. She began working as a model in her teens, and attended a private school, where she was often absent, modelling at photo shoots instead. She once got in trouble for forging her mother's signature, in a note to get out of gym class. After high school, she enrolled at New York University, expecting to major in film studies, but her education was interrupted when she flew to Los Angeles to audition for the role of Lauren Graham's daughter on Gilmore Girls.

Despite her success with that show, Bledel has stuck to small roles in films: in the Indian spin on Jane Austen, Bride & Prejudice, Bledel played the young innocent girl seduced, and in Sin City she played one of the armed prostitutes of Old Town. She has also had some more prominent roles in smaller films, including Tuck Everlasting and The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants.
