Lane Kim (Keiko Agena)

Rory’s best friend is loosely based on writer, director and producer Helen Pai, a friend since childhood of Amy Sherman-Palladino and a co-producer of Gilmore Girls. Like Lane, Helen is a Korean-American who was raised in a Seventh Day Adventist family.

Lane Kim’s eclectic collecting and obsessive knowledge of popular music seems to be inspired by Daniel Palladino, who has been collecting rock and pop since early childhood, and now has a music collection numbering in the thousands.
