Actress Illeana Douglas is to guest-star in The CW drama Gossip Girl. The actress will play the role of Carol, the older sister of Lily (Kelly Rutherford) in an episode scheduled for early April. The character could recur throughout the rest of Gossip Girl’s fourth season.
The character of Carol was previously seen in the Season Two episode Valley Girls; the episode was partially set in the 1980s and was a backdoor pilot for a spin-off series. However, ultimately The CW decided to pass on the spin-off. In the episode the role of Carol was played in the flashback segments by Krysten Ritter.
