For me, there’s always been two delectable reasons why “Gilmore Girls” was an instant TV Classic. Don’t get me wrong, Lauren Graham was impeccable throughout but it’s the twin charmers of KEIKO AGENA and Alexis Bledel that kept me hooked in its 7 year run. As Lane Kim and Rory Gilmore respectively, their witty quips and retorts were priceless as were their boundless adorable factor..:) I’m positive that fans have KEIKO in their hearts for giving Asians a strong presence on television in immortalizing one of the most endearing, recognizable characters ever seen. She certainly banished racial stereotypes in a hurry…kudos! It’s great that after “Gilmore Girls” ended, she returned to grace us with her radiant self in episodes of hit shows “Castle” and “House”. If you think that supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley will be the only eye candy in “Transformers 3”, look closely as KEIKO is slated to feature in this massive blow-em up third installment. Let’s hope she’s allowed to inject her sagacious charisma into the blockbuster..:) Meanwhile keep up-to-date with this sweetie at the KEIKO AGENA OFFICIAL SITE.
On her profession, this irrepressible Japanese-American actress doesn’t perceive being Asian as a hindrance to a successful career, choosing instead to focus on how to better opportunities for herself and her contemporaries. Up till now I’m still in awe of how KEIKO (as LANE KIM) conjures those clever repartee sometimes at break-neck speed; Gilmore-isms that became such a consuming passion for couch potatoes. While she’s active on the theater scene as well as pursuing her artistic endeavors, we all secretly hope she top-lines her very own TV Series. I’m ecstatic that she replies to postings by fans on FACEBOOK whenever she can…what a darling so huge props to her!
