-->''"The success of the show is overwhelming. It's like being Alice at the Mad Hatter's tea party because you never know what's going to happen next."''

Alexis Bledel is an American actress and model of Mexican and Argentinian descent. Alexis engaged in community theater when she was 8 years old, at the behest of her mother Nanette as a way to get over her [[ShrinkingViolet natural shyness]]. She first started modeling at the tender age of 14 after being scouted in a local mall. At 18 she was asked if she'd like to audition for some acting parts and landed the role of Lorelai Leigh "Rory" Gilmore in the show ''GilmoreGirls'' in her very first audition, probably had something to do with her big blue sparkling eyes. Her portrayal of the character earned her several honors from teen-centric media. After the end of Gilmore Girls, she has concentrated on her film work and restarted her modeling career.

----
!!Her works that have pages on this very wiki include:
* ''GilmoreGirls''
* ''Film/TheSisterhoodOfTheTravelingPants''
* ''Film/TuckEverlasting''
* ''SinCity''
* ''{{ER}}'' (as one of the incoming interns in that show's GrandFinale)
* ''MadMen'' In the season five episode "Lady Lazarus", she plays an unhappy housewife Pete Campbell has a one night stand with.

----
!!This actress/model provides examples of:
* DawsonCasting:
** Mostly [[AvertedTrope averted]] as she is a year or two older than the characters she plays.
** Played straight in the forthcoming movie ''Violet and Daisy'' as she was 28 playing 16.
* LatinoIsBrown: Averted completely. You'd never guess that she was half Mexican, half Argentinian just by looking at her.
* RavenHairIvorySkin: Her characters often have this effect on people.
* TheDanza: In the web comedy 'Girl Walks Into a Bar', she portrays a character called Kim. Her full name is [[FullNameUltimatum Kimberly Alexis Bledel]], and Kim is what her friends and family call her.
* WhatBeautifulEyes: In ''Sin City'', her eyes are one of the few things in colour because the director liked them so much.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: "Before I got ''Gilmore Girls'', I was modeling. I went in for a call and was told, "Sweetie, you need to lose two inches off those hips". I was 14. So I just replied, 'I have more jobs than I can do. I'm in high school. I can't go to all the trouble of losing the two inches, so I'll pass.' Someone might tell you to lose weight, but you can say no."
