LAUREN GRAHAM (Principal Claire Fletcher) has been nominated for a Golden Globe® Award for Best Actress in a Drama Series and two Screen Actors Guild nominations for Female Actor in a Drama Series for her sarcastic, yet sensitive, portrayal of Lorelai Gilmore in the WB's critical-acclaimed series "Gilmore Girls.” The role also earned Graham a Best Actress nod from Viewers for Quality Television, as well as an award as Best Actress in a Drama from the Family Friendly Forum.

She recently starred opposite Billy Bob Thornton in the critically acclaimed "Bad Santa,” which co-starred Bernie Mac and John Ritter and was directed by Terry Zwigoff. This past summer, Graham appeared on stage at The Williamstown Theatre Festival starring in the comedy "Once in a Lifetime.”

Shortly after arriving in Los Angeles, Graham quickly landed a recurring role as Richard's (Malcolm Gets) relentlessly sunny girlfriend, Shelly, in the first season of "Caroline in the City.” Recurring roles followed as Graham played an efficiency expert hoping to downsize the staff of "NewsRadio,” and a Los Angeles studio executive who pursued Benjamin Bratt when his marriage was on the rocks on "Law & Order.” In addition, Graham guest-starred on "Seinfeld” and "3rd Rock from the Sun.”

She was a regular on the comedy series "Conrad Bloom” and "Townies” and then starred as a high school administrator dealing with her disruptive niece on "M.Y.O.B.” prior to landing the role of Lorelai on "Gilmore Girls.”

Showing her versatility in both comedic and dramatic roles, Graham appeared on the big screen opposite Keanu Reeves in the Warner Bros. feature film "Sweet November.” She starred in the independent film "Dill Scallion” on VH-1, which was a mockumentary on the world of country music in which Graham had very big hair. Graham's first feature film was the thriller "Nightwatch,” starring Patricia Arquette and Ewan McGregor. She also played Renee Zellweger's best friend and confidante in the Meryl Streep drama "One True Thing.” Next, Graham will appear in "Mogul” with Jeff Bridges.

Growing up an avid equestrian in Northern Virginia, she attended Barnard College in New York, where she majored in English. She then earned an M.F.A. in acting from Southern Methodist University. Graham currently lives in Los Angeles, California.
