Although there was enough history between Blair and Serena for them to be best friends on the show and sometimes even enemies, IRL the real actors Blake and Leighton didn’t talk that much.

When asked who they thought Gossip Girl was, an audience who attended a test screening all answered Dan Humphrey! A scene where he was shown typing during a voiceover had been a dead giveaway!

There was also supposed to be a spin-off featuring Lily Van der Woodsen and her sister when they were younger.

The network didn’t think that Ed Westwick was a good choice for the character of Chuck and said that he looked more like a serial killer than a male lead!

Fans couldn’t imagine anyone else playing the part! To them, Ed is Chuck!

The network also wanted Ashley Olsen and Rumer Willis to play the roles of Blair and Serena!

If it had gone that way, Gossip Girl could have been a totally different show!
