Yin Chang, who plays Nelly Yuki on Gossip Girl, isn’t saying whether or not she’ll be making an appearance on the series finale (“New York, I Love You XOXO”) happening at 8/7c December 17, 2012 on The CW. “You’re going to have to see,” she said. Obviously she’s keeping mum because the big Gossip Girl reveal is happening during the episode and some people are wondering if it has anything to do with Nelly.
“I’ve been getting a lot of tweets about that,” she said. “I definitely see how the fans would lead to that conclusion, but we shall see. You’ll have to tune in, and we will find out whether it’s Nelly or not.”
Yin described the series being over as “very bittersweet.” She had been on the show for about two seasons — the end of Season 1 and in Season 2 — and then was thrilled and surprised when she got a call to invite her back for Season 6.
“Of course I said yes!” she said. “I got to go back to the show that started my whole career.” She said she’ll always be grateful for the series and the people working on it. “It was literally like a high school and college experience, and now we’re graduating this experience together as a group.”
Being on Gossip Girl has definitely changed Yin’s life. “Before [the show], I was in college and I was seriously so close to just stopping my acting because I thought I might get more into writing or journalism or even fashion. I loved acting, but it was such a tough industry.” After she got the part, “It turned things around truly,” she said.
“I still remember business people walking by outside of my trailer when we were shooting on location, and they were like ‘Nelly Yuki!’ I feel like the fans are super loyal and I love them. They’re the reason the show was able to last six seasons.”
