Leighton Meester has exploded on the pop culture scene with the charge from her fan obsessed television hit, Gossip Girl. Maxim named her one of the Top 100 Most Beautiful Women of 2008, but it is her acting skill grabbing all the notice as she plays Blair Waldorf, the dethroned queen bee of the New York City teen scene.
In this new season watch for Blair to reassert her grip on her social scene supremacy, although Meester was expectedly coy on details. For a star commencing a new season of a show whose cast is set for superstardom, suspense in the future of the Gossip Girl storyline is the show's best weapon.
There is no one on television who wields it better than Gossip Girl.
Meester could not have been more thrilled to return to the part she calls, "the character of a lifetime.'
Leighton Meester: I'm really proud to be a part of that, something that actually shoots there. I think it would take away from the impact of the show if were shot anywhere else. The fact that we do go onto locations across the city is a huge part of it. It's kind of a cycle, because the characters on the show are parts of the city and, in turn, we become part of the city because of the show…mostly, because we get to live there! I think everyone that came from L.A. to do the show, really fell in the love with the city.
