Since the turn of the century, millions of faithful viewers have known her has Lorelai Gilmore, but well before that, Lauren Graham had carved out a niche as one of Hollywood's go-to "hey, I know her from somewhere" actresses. Even if you've never watched a single episode of "Gilmore Girls," chances are you've seen Graham in one of her appearances on "Caroline in the City," "Law & Order," "NewsRadio," or "Seinfeld" -- or on the big screen, in movies such as "Bad Santa," "Sweet November," or, um, "The Pacifier."
Now that "Gilmore Girls" appears to be nearing the end of its first-run life, Graham is increasing her film activity; in 2007, she'll appear in at least two high-profile movies, including the Diane Keaton-led romantic comedy "Because I Said So" and "Evan Almighty," in which she'll play the wife of Steve Carrell's modern-day Noah. Things are definitely looking up for the actress who starred in not one, not two, but three failed pilots in 1996 -- even if "Gilmore Girls" goes the way of the dodo soon, expect to see a lot more of Lauren Graham at a theater near you.

Trivia, facts, and notes about Lauren Graham.
On her pre-"Gilmore Girls" career:
"I kept playing the bland friend, and my line was like 'Let's go get a sandwich!'"
On the lessons of fame:
"These days I'm extra nice in stores. It never fails that, whenever I look as bad as I can possibly look or I am sort of cranky because the store is out of something, that is precisely the time when someone one will recognize me and say: 'I really like your show!'"
