Lauren Graham is celebrating on-screen daughter Alexis Bledel’s 35th birthday with some laughs and sass.
Graham honored her Gilmore Girls costar’s day of birth on Friday with a picture from the early days of Stars Hollow, where the mother-daughter duo are slyly smiling to the camera. “Happy Birthday, @AlexisBledel!” said Graham in the post. “Here we are back in the aughts looking sassy.” All proof that Lorelai and Rory are still gabbing their way through life.
Bledel is now two years older than Graham was when Gilmore Girls first aired in 2000. The duo started their unshakable bond during the original run of the WB series, which ended in 2007. The upcoming Netflix revival, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, will mark the return to Stars Hollow for the pair.
Series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, who will help unveil an exclusive first look at the reboot at EW’s PopFest, left the show during its final season, but has returned with co-writer Daniel Palladino for the upcoming revival episodes.
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life will begin streaming on Netflix on Nov. 25.
