Lauren Graham graduated in 1984 from Langley High School. She has a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from Barnard College and a Master of Fine Arts from Southern Methodist University. She started her acting career with appearances in commercials and small roles in television series. She started earning significant money as an actress back in the ’90s, from appearances in television series like “Townies”, “3rd Rock from the Sun”, “Good Company”, and “Caroline in the City”. She became known after being cast in “Gilmore Girls”, a television series where Lauren played the role of Lorelei Gilmore. After seven seasons, the series was cancelled and media have speculated that the main reason for this decision was the cast’s too high salaries.

In 2000, she started playing Lorelei Gilmore in the television series “Gilmore Girls”, for which she was nominated at the Golden Globe Awards in 2001. Between 2009 and 2014, Lauren was a leading actress in “Parenthood”, where she was the single mother Sarah Braverman.

She is also a co-executive producer for the television movie “Kate on Later”, made in 2015 for NBC together with Ellen DeGeneres.

Lauren Graham adds money to her net worth by acting on Broadway. She made her debut in 2009, as Adelaide in “Guys and Dolls”, a role she played 113 times in five months.

In 2013, the actress had her first book published. The novel, called “Someday, Someday, Maybe”, became a bestseller and it will be adapted in order to become a television series aired by CW and produced by Ellen DeGeneres‘ A Very Good Production and Warner Bros TV.

The actress won three Choice TV Parental Units from Teen Choice Awards, in 2005 and 2006 for her role in “Gilmore Girls” and in 2010 for her performance in “Parenthood”.

In her personal life, Lauren Graham had a relationship with actor Matthew Perry and, from 2010 she has been in a relationship with Peter Krause, the actor who plays her brother in “Parenthood”.

#Quote
1 It can't be Christmas every day!
2 Nobody ever seems to want my advice about serious stuff. People will be like: 'Who made that sweater?' Or 'How did you get your hair so straight?' They don't to come to me for the relationship advice or deep stuff. In fact, my little sister actually hides from me.
3 My character has louder taste in clothes, I think. Personally, all I ever want to be wearing are jeans. - on Lorelai Gilmore
4 These days I have to be 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 will recognize me and say: 'I really like your show.'
5 [on her career prior to Gilmore Girls (2000)]: "I kept playing the bland friend, and my line was like 'Let's go get a sandwich!'".
6 Belly buttons are cool.
7 Perspective is the most important thing to have in life.
