‘Gilmore Girls’: 3 Ways Lorelai Gilmore and Anna Nardini Were the Same Character

Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) and Anna Nardini (Sherilyn Fenn) did not go ahead. Gilmore’s daughters. But, in many ways, they were very similar. So together, of course, they were largely of the same character.

Who is Anna Nardini?

Anna used to have Luke Danes (Scott Patterson). They had a daughter, April Nardini (Vanessa Marano), whom Luke discovered only about 12 years later.

April came to Luke’s Diner to get a DNA sample from him. She revealed the identity of her biological father at her school’s science fair. Luke only looked to learn that he was indeed April’s father.

Luke did not tell Lorelai about April. Meanwhile, Lorelai went ahead with planning their wedding. That’s until she found out about April and Luke suggested they put their nuptials off.
