The CW’s hit television series Gossip Girl will soon be coming to a close after 6 years of catty drama on the Upper-East side. Actress Leighton Meester who plays Blair Walforf has admitted that she is looking forward to getting a break from the show, and expanding her career.
In an interview with E! News, Leighton talked about what the end of the show meant for her.
“It’s bittersweet,” she said. “That the perfect word for it.”
“But at the same time, it’s great to move on and do something different. Playing the same character for six years is great, but it’s exciting to do other things and also just sleeping and spending time with my family.”
Leighton won’t only be working on new acting projects, but also music! “I want to release an album by the end of the year,” she said. “I probably have 20 songs ready but will release an album with 10 or 11.”
Last night, Leighton stepped out in this pretty blue and black printed dress as she attended the premiere of her new movie That’s My Boy. Be sure to check out the trailer right here! The movie also stars Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg!
