English actor Ed Westwick has spoken about how his character Chuck, in the hit The CW television series Gossip Girl, has evolved since he first appeared in the show. Ed admitted that, while he is proud of what Chuck has achieved, he does still miss the cocky one liners that he used to get to say in previous seasons of the show.
Westwick explained, “I've enjoyed it so much. In the beginning, he was just this kind of brat, this total brat and I enjoyed it a lot. I had a lot of fun playing with that and then we explored it and realized that there was this heart that had just been beaten down so much. Or a heart that had been ignored that it no longer knew how to beat really.”
He added, “Then this thing with Blair really was the ultimate kind of growth of that. The only thing that came out of everything was this girl embodies everything that I need in order to live. Look, it's been really good. There's things I miss. I miss the cocky one-liners. They're still there, but it's kind of in a different way now. I think in a way, he's probably the most mature out of all of them, especially this season, which isn't fun!”
Ed concluded, “No matter how old you are, people still obsess over one person or are so in love with one person and if it's a soulmate and you feel that kind of connection then that's what's going to happen. Look, he's got his business under control. He's the youngest successful business man ever. Doogie Howser.” Gossip Girl continues on The CW on Monday nights.
