Ed Westwick teases Chuck and Blair, Gossip Girl storyline
Gossip Girl actor Ed Westwick has become a household name and a hit with the ladies thanks to his performances as Chuck Bass in the hit The CW show. Ed has revealed how Chuck is completely obsessed with Blair and will be trying everything he can think of to find a way to be with her.
Westwick explained, “What can I tell you that's coming up? There's a wedding. I mean, look, with regards to, for my character of Chuck, she's his muse, she's his obsession. It's drawn-out, but it's so, like, heavy. He's so into her. It's such a big deal for him. It's taken on a thing, like she is the air that he breathes, I guess. He wants at any cost to find a way to be with her and that's what he's doing for the rest of the season, is trying, trying and trying. Of course, when something's like that, sometimes you try bad methods, you try bad approaches.”
He added, “That's kind of the flavour of our show anyway, double-crossing and whatnot. I still don't know where it's going to go, he's just on a mission. What's kind of interesting is he's not devious in other ways like he was for the first three or four years and there was a bunch of stuff, like family that he was trying to figure out. It's not really at the forefront of his mind now. It's just how do I get to be with the girl.”
Ed concluded, “But if it was me, I would tell her to go and get lost a million years ago because I don't care, there's other people out there. That's kind of what I want to do: I want to grab Chuck Bass and say, 'There are other people out there, man. It's not cool!'” Gossip Girl Season Five returns to The CW on January 16.
