The guy who will be kissing Ed Westwick on "Gossip Girl" is a mystery no more. Neal Bledsoe has opened up to Entertainment Weekly what prompted him to take the role and how the kiss happened. The actor who was relatively unknown, said it was a "nice kiss" and that it would be foolish if he hadn't taken the role just because he has to kiss a guy.
As previously reported, Westwick's Chuck Bass is doing Blair a favor by seducing the gay NYU alumni who has the power to select a freshman to give the important speech. Turns out the kiss is not going as simple as it should be. "I will tell you this: I have a very unexpected and darker motivation about it," Bledsoe told EW.
How exactly the kiss shooting went on, Bledsoe admitted it was not awkward at all because they were both "professionals about it" and have rehearsed it. He confessed though that the scene took several takes to be perfect.
"Gossip Girl" returns on September 14 but the kiss will not be featured until the October 19 episode.
