Gossip Girl Series Finale: EP Stephanie Savage Answers All Your Burning Questions!
Meester, who despite being heavily wooed by all the major networks has remained off the TV grid since
ended in 2012, will play Deborah, a self-educated and incredibly motivated colonial woman who possesses modern ideals despite being trapped in a regressive time. She has contemporary beliefs of gender and racial equality which everyone scoffs at in 1775.
‘s Julius “Goldy” Sharpe penned the pilot script and will serve as an exec producer alongside Lord and Miller.
Thank God she decided to come out of her shell. Did we know why she went off grid?
She got married and had a child. I think she just wanted a break and to hang with her family.
She probably was holding out for something good, if an actor is in demand for TV that demand is going to be there the following pilot season.
Really happy to see that! I hope it gets series order, but it’s FOX, so I’m already expecting low ratings :\
It’ll be great to have Leighton back on our screens again. :) Plus she’s always shined in comedy – not just drama. I expect this to be great!
UM yes! Really missed seeing Leighton on-screen since gossip girl!
Nice that she is back to screens. nNot sure about the show but will see!
