Time for more father-daughter bonding! Vanessa Marano, who played Luke Danes’ (Scott Patterson) daughter, April Nardini, on Gilmore Girls, is returning for Netflix’s revival, Variety reports.
Marano joined the series in season 6, with Luke surprised to learn that he has a middle school-aged child. April’s presence, along with that of her mom, Anna Nardini (Sherilyn Fenn), complicated the diner owner’s relationship with Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham), leading to their breakup in season 6.
Marano also starred on ABC Family’s Switched at Birth and had a recurring role on Showtime’s Dexter.
