40 Gilmore Girls Facts That’ll Make You Say “Oy With the Poodles Already!”

Lane is based off a real person.

Gilmore Girls Lane

The CW


Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino didn’t have to look very far for inspiration for the character of Lane Kim (Keiko Agena). She apparently drew inspiration from her real-life best friend Helen Pai. This tidbit gets even better when we tell you that Helen was actually a co-producer and script coordinator on The CW series. It has been said that Lane is not a clone of Helen but a “loose interpretation.” Nevertheless, it’s a cool fact. Helen is a Korean-American who has also worked on Grimm and Bunheads. There’s no word on whether she was in a rock band called Hep Alien. But, “Hep Alien” is an anagram of “Helen Pai.” Whoa.
