Emily Alyn Lind Is 'Already In Love' With Her 'Gossip Girl' Character

Emily Alyn Lind is speaking out about the upcoming Gossip Girl reboot!

The 18-year-old actress was one of the first announced for the cast of the series.

In a recent interview, Emily dished what she could on her character and the Gossip Girl universe.

“I met with our casting director and I met with [showrunner] Josh [Safran] and they gave me a rundown of everything that’s going on. The way that they explained everything and the way that they talked about how it’s a family, it’s going to be a good time,” Emily told ET. “It’s like we wouldn’t do this if we weren’t all in love with each other and so happy to go to work. They’ve done this before. The fact that they want to come back means that they were very happy with how the other show was. They’re ready to get back on the wagon and go again. So I’m really excited.”

“The characters are so intriguing. Josh is brilliant. All the creators of that show are involved in our reboot,” she added. “They just have a way with creating characters that you want to watch, that you’re interested in and I’m excited to see what they do with this one.”

As for her own character Audrey, Emily said, “Let me just say I’m already in love with her and I’m really excited for everyone to meet her.”

Emily also spoke on the series tackling topics and conversations that are relevant to today.

She said she’s excited for them to “touch on specific subjects that are really relevant to today’s society” and “how we’re going to make sure that that is a relevant factor of the show.”

“As people that have platforms being on a show, you need to talk about things that people stigmatize or people think shouldn’t be talked about,” Emily continued. “I’m very into confronting situations head-on and saying, ‘Look, this is what we have to do.’”

Eli Brown is opening up about the new Gossip Girl reboot!

It was announced earlier this year that the former Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists actor had joined the new series for HBO Max.

While promoting his new Netflix movie, The F**k-It List, Eli revealed a little bit about his character in Gossip Girl.

“We’ve been asked to keep even the very little information that we have pretty secretive, but I can tell you that my character’s a really good guy,” he told ET. “He comes from a very wealthy family and he’s a humanitarian.”

“First and foremost, I’m excited to shoot something in New York,” Eli added. “That sounds so fun, even though I know that it will be a very different New York because of social distancing and the safety precautions. It’s going to be a very different experience than I thought, but that’ll still be very cool. We’re recreating something that was so adored by so many people. It’s going to be fun.”

Penn Badgley & Chace Crawford Say 'Gossip Girl' Should Get Some Credit For This Social Media Site

Penn Badgley & Chace Crawford Say 'Gossip Girl' Should Get Some Credit For This Social Media Site

Penn Badgley and Chace Crawford had a mini, virtual Gossip Girl reunion!

The two former co-stars chatted about their current shows, and reflected on their time together on the CW series.

Penn and Chace dished on how Gossip Girl should get a little credit for Twitter.

“I remember even meeting a publicist that first season, and she was talking about this thing called Twitter. And as she explained Twitter, I was like, ‘What is this nonsense? I don’t want to have a Twitter account, and you tweet. What is this bird thing?’ That’s something that actually years later, I think we got to give credit to Gossip Girl,” Penn said in their Variety “Actors on Actors” interview.

“It was ahead of its time. It really tapped into something interesting on the cusp of it all changing,” Chace added. “I’m like, ‘Why would I want to put my life out there? I’m trying to crawl into my hermit shell. I’m a Cancer.’ But now we’re all partaking. It’s part of the business. I should follow you.”

The guys also talked about watching the show back. Penn said the last time he watched it, it was “very hard to watch” and “sometimes it’s just uncomfortable.”

Chace added that you would have to “strap me to a gurney and pop my eyes open like Clockwork Orange. But no, it would be interesting to see the first couple maybe.”
