When Radio Times asked Ed Westwick about the possibility of more Gossip Girl, the 29-year-old actor was against it. Everything’s getting revived these days, he argued, and what’s the rush?
“Nah, that’s not gonna happen,” he told Radio Times.
What if Netflix backed production with a budget worthy of those slick Upper East Siders?
“I’ll do it then,” he replied.
Westwick spoke to Radio Times about his latest BBC show White Gold, but on the subject of TV revivals he felt things were quite overdone.
“I know there’s a bunch of them coming back – I hear they’re doing Will and Grace, they’ve done Gilmore Girls,” he said in the interview. “But it’s such a strange thing to think about. It feels like we only just finished! And I haven’t done enough in between yet to feel like I could comfortably revisit it. And I did so much with that character – it’s played out, man. It’s done.”
Of course, that was before Radio Times‘ Craig McLean had the genius idea of bribing Chuck Bass with dat sweet sweet Netflix money. Stamp a red ‘N’ and a big budget on that project, and he’s in.
“Hundred percent,” Westwick added.
