Congratulations to Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds who married this weekend.
Lively and Reynolds starred in The Green Lantern together but before that, Lively was playing Serena van der Woodsen on Gossip Girl.
Serena has become a well loved and much fawned over (thanks to her amazing fashion) character but the part wasn’t one that was just offered to Lively. Like everyone else, Lively had to audition for it. Check out part of her audition.
I have also come across other Gossip Girl actors auditioning for their parts …
Chace Crawford – Nate Archibald audition (listen out for Leighton Meester (Blair Waldorf), off camera, reading lines with Crawford)
Ed Westwick’s Chuck Bass audition shows he didn’t have to ever grow into the character, he had nailed Chuck Bass from word go!
After five years, Gossip Girl is coming to an end this year. Fans aren’t happy about this, but its time is definitely up. That said, this final season looks set to be as scandalous, glamorous, and gossipy as ever! Below is a teaser trailer
The sixth, and final, season of Gossip Girl premieres in the US on Monday 8 October.
