The White Gold alum played the Upper East Sider, who falls in love with Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) on the CW series for six seasons. Seven years after it went off the air in 2012, HBO Max ordered 10 episodes of a reboot, which will follow a new group of New York City teens.

Executive producer Josh Schwartz teased the possibility of the original cast, which also included Penn Badgley, Blake Lively, Chace Crawford, Taylor Momsen, Jessica Szohr, Matthew Settle and Kelly Rutherford, appearing on the show in some capacity in July 2019.

“We’ve reached out to all of them to let them know it was happening,” he told reporters at the Television Critics Association at the time. “We would love for them to be involved if they want to be involved.”
