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.’”
