Gossip Girl was one of those shows that captured our hearts and minds, and we just haven’t been the same ever since it ended.
One thing we were glad about, was that the show wrapped up nicely and revealed just who Gossip Girl was!
But it turns out that someone else was originally supposed to be Gossip Girl and it would have made the ending VERY different!
Executive Producer Joshua Safran recently revealed that they had originally wanted and planned for Serena’s brother Eric (played by Connor Paolo) to be Gossip Girl!
"I always thought it was Eric until the end of season two, and I even guided it that way," he told Vulture.
"But when the New York Post revealed it was Eric—and I still don't know how that happened, I think they were just guessing—we realised we couldn't go down that road anymore, so we abandoned him.”
They even considered making Nate Archibald (Chase Crawford) GG!
SPOILER ALERT: If you don’t know who GG really is, do NOT read any further.
"But in the end, it had to be Dan.
“Because Dan's a writer, observer, and could write in different styles.”
Well there you go!
