Spotted in 2023: The Scoop on the Gossip Girl Cast—Where Are They Now?

Hey, Upper East Siders. It may have been a while since you’ve heard from the Gossip Girl cast that doesn’t mean the drama is over. It’s time to take a peek behind the designer curtains and diamond-studded doors to see where our favorite Upper East Siders have landed in the grand game of life. So grab your lattes and buckle up, because here’s the juice on the “Gossip Girl” cast and their current whereabouts.

The Gossip Girl Cast

Blake Lively (Serena van der Woodsen) :The golden girl and the queen bee of the Upper East Side, has left her mark in the industry. Dazzling in movies such as “The Age of Adeline”(2015), “The Shallows” (2016) and her upcoming movie “It Ends With Us” (TBD), Lively has proven her talents lie beyond the bounds of the Upper East Side. In 2012, she married Ryan Reynolds and became what has become social media’s favorite couple and has 3 children (who inspired Taylor Swift’s “Folklore”), and has become a Met Gala Icon. Safe to say Blake Lively has not slowed down as an icon since Gossip Girl.

Leighton Meester (Blair Waldorf): The HBIC herself traded her headbands for a crown of versatility. Leighton Meester’s talent isn’t confined to just one realm. She’s ventured into acting, music, and everything in between. You can see her on “How I Met Your Father”, “River Wild” and on stage as Curly’s wife in “Of Mice and Men”.She has been married to Adam Brody since 2014 (who you may now from Gilmore Girls and The O.C) and is expecting a second child! Seems our Queen B can conquer any domain she sets her sights on.

Penn Badgley (Dan Humphrey): Lonely Boy no more, Penn Badgley’s transformation into the mysterious Joe Goldberg on Netflix’ “You” has kept fans hooked. Who knew the boy next door had such a dark side? Penn’s keeping us guessing, reminding us that everyone has secrets they’d rather keep off the pages of my blog. Mr Gossip Girl himself has been married to Domino Kirke since 2014 and have welcomed their first child together.

Ed Westwick (Chuck Bass): From bowties to brooding, Ed Westwick’s charm remains unmatched. Chuck Bass might be in the past, but the actor’s journey is far from over. With roles that showcase his range and a heart for making a difference such as “White Gold” Me You Madness”, our favorite bad boy proves he’s got more than just one trick up his tailored sleeve.

Chace Crawford (Nate Archibald): Chace Crawford’s dashing good looks and that signature grin have carried him beyond the confines of our beloved Gossip Girl universe. Television, film, and even a taste of the superhero life—Nate Archibald is still turning heads and stealing hearts.

Taylor Momsen (Jenny Humphrey): The once-innocent Jenny has transformed into a rock ‘n’ roll rebel. Taylor Momsen’s voice now echoes on stages, rather than in hallways. She’s strumming to her own beat, proving that sometimes a change in tune is just what the doctor ordered.

Jessica Szohr (Vanessa Abrams): Our bohemian babe has kept busy since her days mingling with Manhattan’s elite. Jessica Szohr’s journey through various roles in TV and film shows that she’s got range. Seems like Vanessa’s knack for the unexpected rubbed off on her.

Connor Paolo (Eric van der Woodsen): Serena’s little brother has come a long way from his days on the steps of the Met. Connor Paolo continues to make waves in the acting world, reminding us that even the quietest characters have stories worth telling.

There you have it. The “Gossip Girl” cast has woven their stories beyond the confines of the Upper East Side, proving that life after high school can be just as intriguing. As their tales continue to unfold, one thing remains clear: whether ruling the silver screen or carving their path off-camera, these stars are far from fading. And remember, dear readers, you might leave the steps of the Met behind, but you can never truly escape the watchful eye of Gossip Girl. XOXO.
