Ed Westwick Talks Life & Acting After Gossip Girl!


We’ll always have seksi Chuck Bass memz…

Ed Westwick has moved on from his villainous Upper East Side Gossip Girl days, and made a smooth transition into star-crossed murderous Shakespeare!

You heard that right!

From high school cocaine habits to sword fighting — this Brit does it all!

Ed took on the iconic role of Tybalt, Juliet’s cousin and Romeo’s enemy, in the latest adaption of Romeo and Juliet, and he gives a stellar performance!

In a new interview, the 26-year-old star reveals what life’s been like after GG and how he’s excited to take on different characters:

├óΓé¼┼ôAt the moment, you know I did six years on Gossip Girl and it was an amazing experience. It was my first time working on an American TV show. And, right now, I├óΓé¼Γäóm enjoying the idea of exploring film and going from character to character.”

And after acting on the hit CW show for so long, it was a natural transition to move out of his chic NYC digs, for a sunny new home in Los Angeles:

“I decided to leave New York after Gossip Girl, and I had such a specific experience of it for the time we were there. I have a place there and I look forward to going back at some point. I have wonderful friends there, and New York is an amazing place and did so much for me, and it was an incredible experience, but what I’d like to do, is, at some point, is go back and experience it in a different way.”

Did we mention his on-again off-again girlfriend Jessica Szohr resides in EL Lay?! Motivation to stay, perhaps???

We’re sure they’d love to have Mr. Bass him back to cause rich kid mischief in the Big Apple, but we have a feeling he’s going to be on the west coast for a while!
