I doubt I would have recognised her if I hadn't seen her name. Vanessa Marano played April Nardini, Luke Danes' daughter on the last seasons of Gilmore Girls and by the looks of it she is pretty much all grown up. Vanessa stars in 'Switched At Birth' which has had a really positive response to it's first episodes. She also turned up in season 2 of Parenthood - reuniting with Lauren Graham for a couple of episodes.
I have to confess that I absolutely detested her character in G.G. which unfortunately doesn't make me want to rush to see her new show.
