Sookie St. James is on the show Gilmore Girls. She is played by Melissa McCarthy and has bright red hair. She works at the Independence Inn. She is Lorelai’s best friend. She is also a genius chef, if sometimes a little bit klutzy and forgetful. She eventually has a relationship with Jackson Belleville. Her personality is quite zany, but she is always the supportive friend.
We never really find out how she really got to Stars Hollow. There are a few references to her life before, but like most supporting characters we rarely if ever learn her back story. She is there for comic relief. She also is really thoughtful and ends up giving Lorelai a lot of great advice and causes her to think between all of her funny one liners. Everyone should have a friend like Sookie St. James. She is humorous as well as dependable. She really prides herself on working hard too and really tries to make every single meal the best that she possibly can.
