Watch part of the “Gilmore Girls” Reunion Panel

The Gilmore Girls reunion panel, presented by the ATX Festival and Entertainment Weekly, offered plenty of amazing moments from our favorites from Stars Hollow. Edward Hermann was honored, Rory’s best boyfriend was decided, and so much more was discussed.

For those who couldn’t make it to watch the reunion in person, fear not: an edited portion of the panel is streaming at Hosted by EW Morning Live host Jessica Shaw, the reunion featured creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, stars Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Kelly Bishop, and many more from the show’s ensemble cast.

The panel also included discussions about how Gilmore Girls would fare in today’s TV landscape and if we’ll ever see a Gilmore Girls movie. Sherman-Palladino also spoke earlier in the day about her upcoming non-Gilmore Girls projects.

Nylon + Entertainment Weekly Scans

I’ve finally added scans of the interview Alexis did for Nylon’s TV Issue that came out in September. I also added scans of Entertainment Weekly in which Alexis was reunited with her Sisterhood co-stars Amber Tamblyn, America Ferrera and Blake Lively. Be sure to check both out as both shoots are beautiful. Also check out the video below which contains an interview Alexis did during her Nylon shoot! I’d like to thank my friend Claudia for the EW scans!

Alexis talks turning to the dark side for “Violet & Daisy”

Alexis Bledel first shot to fame as one of the two “Gilmore Girls.” Now she’s doing a radically different kind of shooting

In “Gilmore Girls,”the drama that premiered to critical acclaim on the WB in October 2000 and ran for seven seasons, Bledel won accolades for her portrayal of Lorelai Leigh ‘Rory’ Gilmore, the only daughter of a single mother who dreams of going to an Ivy League college to become a foreign correspondent.

On the big screen, Bledel has appeared in “Tuck Everlasting” (2002), Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s “Sin City” (2005), “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” (2005) and its sequel (2008), and “Post Grad” (2009). She also played the recurring role of Beth Dawes during the fifth season of AMC’s “Mad Men” and played Lady Jaye in the popular Funny or Die short, “The Ballad of G.I. Joe” (2009).

Alexis Bledel’s latest project is “Violet & Daisy,” which follows a pair of young female assassins as they descend into a strange and surreal world following their supposedly last “job.” Written and directed by “Precious” screenwriter Geoffrey Fletcher, “Violet & Daisy” pairs Bledel up with Saoirse Ronan, who’s no stranger to playing a trained killer after her recent turn in Joe Wright’s “Hanna” (2011).

We spoke with Alexis Bledel about “Violet & Daisy” and her upcoming return to television in this fall’s Fox comedy, “Us & Them.”

BRYAN ENK: A good trailer is hard to do these days, but I really like the trailer for “Violet & Daisy.” It starts as this kind of fast-paced thriller with James Gandolfini and Danny Trejo shows up and then about halfway through it shifts into something a lot more surreal and sinister. Would you say that’s something that translates to the feature film itself – does it reinvent itself as it goes along, or how would you describe the film and what makes it unique?

ALEXIS BLEDEL: Yes, the trailer is definitely a good indication of what the film is. The film starts and ends in starkly different places, blending different genres along the way. The story takes place in a very unique universe that Geoffrey created and we all dove into it head-first!

Q & A With Alexis on “Mad Men”

Alexis Bledel, who plays Beth Dawes on AMC’s Mad Men, speaks with about her character’s sex scene with Pete Campbell and what excited her about this role.

Q: Who was your favorite character before joining the cast?

A: They’re all written so well… Peggy is an incredible character, and I remember thinking that when I first watched the show. She’s a great and rare television character. It’s been fun watching her go from Don’s secretary to coming into her own in that time period.

Q: What drew you to the part of Beth?

A: I instantly wanted to know more about her because she’s quite mysterious and she’s conflicted… I felt for her right away. She is stuck in a bad marriage that is really taking a toll on her psyche I think, so I just wanted to explore what that meant for her.
