Scott Patterson's character "Luke Danes" was not only a staple in Gilmore Girls but also a fan-favourite. His personality and love for both "Lorelai" (Lauren Graham) and "Rory" (Alexis Bledel) was something fans were rooting for the whole series through.

Scott Patterson hasn't been doing too many other films or series since portraying the legendary "Luke", however he is still active in the entertainment industry and very involved with Gilmore Girls fans and events today.
