Gilmore Girls Addendum

Keiko Agena, who plays Lane, Rory's best bud, is 31 years old, which means that during the first season, when she was playing a high-school sophomore, she was 26. Now, that older actors play high school kids is no shock, but I had no idea that she wasn't at least pretty close to her character's age--as Alexis Bledel is (she was 19 during that first season, also playing a high-school sophomore). It's not just that she looks younger, but she does an admirable job of acting young, something many a twenty-something playing a teen is unable to do.

Until Whenever

I've seen her perform on stage. She's a fine performer and the stage work carries over into TV.

Oh, and the age thing. Must be the Asian blood. We never get carded in metro cities.
