As we sadly and anxiously approach the sixth and final season of Gossip Girl, we think it’s time to look back at what were the humble beginnings of a show that would inevitably throw its cast into stardom. Chuck Bass, Blair Waldorf, and Serena van der Woodsen were just names on a page until the beautifully distinctive faces of Ed Westwick, Leighton Meester, and Blake Lively were discovered to bring their characters to backstabbing, money spending, passionate loving, and secretly scheming life.
But before the producers struck gold with the cast we now know and love, a grueling process of auditioning actors ensued. If you are wondering what the beginnings were… then you’re in luck! We found some juicy behind-the-scenes footage of the early auditions of Ed Westwick and Blake Lively.
