Alexis Bledel's New Role Is No Rory Gilmore

Most recently, Alexis returned to her "Gilmore Girls" roots, reprising her role as Rory Gilmore for the four-part Netflix reboot. Bledel plays Olfglen, one of the women who is forcibly impregnated by society's patriarchal upper class. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism regime that treats women as property of the state.

Fun! For clarification, it's set in the futuristic - but also kinda medieval - world where women's rights are a thing of the past and women are forced into sexual and reproductive servitude for rich families. Before that, she starred in Fox comedy Us & Them, opposite Jason Ritter.

Moss and Bledel worked together on "Mad Men", which is where Bledel met her now-husband Vincent Kartheiser.

"This was a happy coincidence". Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Moss stated, "We really wanted to find somebody that could be strong and magnetic, with a certain weight to them. Obviously it doesn't hurt that she's a friend of mine".

The Handmaid's Tale is helmed by Bruce Miller, who created, wrote, and executive produces the series. Margaret Atwood served as a consulting producer, and Reed Morano directs the first three episodes. It debuts on Hulu on Wednesday, April 26. She is repped by CAA, Industry Entertainment and Jackoway Tyerman.
