Gilmore Girls- Where Are They Now?
Gilmore Girls ended in 2007 after 7 seasons, leaving many fans sad and upset. But they weren't sad for long, as most of their favorite characters from the show have gone on to do other projects. So... where are they now?
Lauren Graham, who played mom, Lorelai, on Gilmore Girls, is now on the hit NBC series, Parenthood.

On Parenthood, she plays mom, Sarah, who has 2 teenagers, Amber and Drew. Between Gilmore Girls and Parenthood, she's also been in several movies, including Evan Almighty and It's Kind of a Funny Story.
