Actress Lauren Graham has made a name for herself as a lovable TV mom who’s just trying to get her life together and make her way through a tough dating landscape while raising a quirky and independent daughter.

You know, from Parenthood?

Or were you thinking Gilmore Girls?

It’s true: Her characters of Lorelei Gilmore and Sarah Braverman (from Gilmore and Parenthood, respectively) share more than a few characteristics, but her onscreen daughters really couldn’t be further apart. Rory Gilmore (Alexis Bledel) was the quiet, book-smart favorite of Stars Hollow, while Amber Holt (Mae Whitman) took a more rebellious path through her teenage years before winning over the hearts (and ears!) of viewers in Parenthood.

Pay attention, NBC and CW execs: If you’re looking for a way to boost your ratings with a nostalgic reboot, Rory and Amber Bravermore could be your golden ticket.
