Sacre Blair! (to quote a CW tagline)
The soap about overprivileged Manhattan teens enters its fourth season with a two-episode trip to Paris, where fans mobbed stars Leighton Meester (Blair) and Blake Lively (Serena), who’s now promoting her Green Lantern movie.
Producer Stephanie Savage says, “We all felt a trip to Paris was the ultimate expression of the Gossip Girl universe. We’ve been imagining this space for a long time, with Blair’s father living in Paris.”
Her co-creator and executive producer Josh Schwartz says the Paris trip “sets in motion the entire season,” and there was one spoiler alert evident: Co-star Ed Westwick, whose Chuck Bass was shot in last season’s cliffhanger, appeared on the panel, so–surprise!–he’s not dead.
How does he react to all the attention back in New York, where the show’s filming is regularly covered by the tabloid newspapers? “It’s a little strange, actually. Some people are still surprised that I’m English, after three seasons,” Westwick says. “It never ceases to surprise me and amaze me.”
