Date of Birth : Sep 16th 1981
American actress and former fashion model. She is known for her role in the television series Gilmore Girls and for the films Tuck Everlasting, Sin City, and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. She goes by her first name of “Kimberly” with family and friends, but is known professionally as Alexis Bledel.
Bledel made her debut on TV on The WB series Gilmore Girls in 2000. She played Lorelai Leigh “Rory” Gilmore, the daughter of single mother Lorelai Victoria Gilmore. Initially, Rory was a high school student living with her mother, but she has since moved on to college at Yale University, where she, among other things, has worked as the editor of the Yale Daily News. Bledel has said that she feels she can relate in some ways to Rory, both when it comes to some personal traits and her relationship to her own parents. She also sees the family structure and mother-daughter relationship on the show as something to which many people can relate.
Bledel appeared as the main character in the video for Less Than Jake’s “She’s Gonna Break Soon”, lead single from their 2003 album Anthem. The single charted at number 39 on the UK charts. The role of Becky, a prostitute, in the movie Sin City was a shift from Bledel’s previous TV and film characters. “She’s a very professional prostitute. She carries a gun and she kicks ass,” said Bledel of Becky. Despite her tough and precocious exterior, Becky gives the impression of being the young and insecure one among the women of Old Town, because of her young appearance and her close relationship to her mother, from whom she keeps her profession a secret.
