Ed Westwick has sparked speculation that he could be about to leave teen-drama Gossip Girl. The British actor plays the womanising millionaire Chuck Bass on The CW series which is currently in its fourth season. However, Westwick reportedly told Tatler that he was ‘ready to do something else’.
“It’s all about the work, you know. The feeling you get when you connect to the work. And that’s what I had with Chuck Bass in the beginning – I was fascinated by him. But now, to be completely honest, I’m ready to do something else. Really ready to do something else.” – Ed Westwick in Tatler
It’s not the first time, recently, that one of the Gossip Girl stars have been the subject of press rumours over their future on the show. Leighton Meester recently spoke about how she would probably quit her role of Blair on the series when her contract ends. Meanwhile Blake Lively was the subject of reports last year claiming she had asked producers to kill off her character of Serena to allow her to concentrate on her movie career.
