How could we forget the time Lane Kim surprised fans of Gilmore Girls with her pregnancy bomb? Apparently, actress Keigo Agena was pretty shocked about that aspect too.
Speaking to US Magazine, Agena said she found that particular storyline to be unexpected.
Everything was really quick. She’s fighting with Zack and then, all of a sudden, she’s engaged to Zack and in an instant, she gets pregnant after having sex for the first time during their honeymoon.
In her opinion, this made things a little hard for Lane, and Agena felt it would have been great if the character was able to delve more into her music.
Lane found out about her pregnancy in the seventh season of the show, so she ended up staying behind when her fellow bandmate Zack (played by Todd Lowe) went on tour.
During the show's 2016 revival, Zack and Lane stayed together, but Agena did not believe their future was certain. The actress said she learned from her character and the surprising arc her story took was part of the reason she enjoyed playing that role.
She explained that it was a good thing her character kept her on her toes. As an actor, "it’s almost a little dangerous to invest in an idea," she said, adding that there would be difficulties if one automatically assumed where a character's story would go.
