Bledel made her television debut opposite Lauren Graham in The WB comedy-drama Gilmore Girls, which ran for seven seasons from October 5, 2000 to May 15, 2007.
She played Rory Gilmore, the daughter of Lorelai Gilmore (Graham), a single mother.
The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and was released in the United States on April 15, 2011.
It was confirmed in early-March 2013 that Bledel would co-star opposite Jason Ritter in the Fox pilot Friends & Family, an adaptation of the British sitcom Gavin & Stacey as Stacey with Ritter as Gavin.
After being scouted by a modeling agent she did some modeling (while juggling her high school studies) in New York, Milan, and Tokyo.
Soon after finishing high school, she signed up at New York University as a film major.
Initially, Rory was a high school student at an exclusive private academy, living with her mother in a small town in Connecticut, but later moved on to college at Yale University, where she, among other things, worked as the editor of the Yale Daily News.
Bledel made her feature film debut opposite Jonathan Jackson in the fantasy romantic drama Tuck Everlasting (2002), based on Natalie Babbitt's novel of the same name (1975).
She played Lena Kaligaris, an aspiring artist on a journey with her three best friends, linked over the summer by a pair of "magical" jeans.
