Lorelai: I can't believe you're going to a therapist. You know, they're totally going to ask you about me.
Rory: What?
Lorelai: They always want to ask about your mother. It's okay. Say whatever you want. But make sure you start with "my mother's very hot".
Rory: Yes, that won't seem at all disturbing to the doctor.

different character...same actor
24 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was just watching an old episode of Gilmore Girls entitled, Here Comes the Son, where Jess goes to California to stay with his dad. Sherilyn Fenn plays Sasha, his dads girlfriend, and has a daughter named Lily. In the current season, she plays Anna Nardini, the mother of Luke's daughter, April??? Now that all of these TV shows are releasing past seasons on DVD, they should be careful about recasting actors as different characters...its very confusing!! Also, it reminds people that it is just a television show. I enjoy getting sucked in to the show and feeling like I am watching real peoples lives unfold. Just as a side note... I am glad Jess is gone! Rory is too good for him!
