If you’ve seen the “Gossip Girl” series, you might not have missed the now cult couple formed by Chuck Bass and Blair Waldorf. And precisely, the interpreter of the dark young man has recently indulged in some secrets about his feelings for his co-star at the time.
Chuck and Blair: the flagship couple of Gossip Girl
We must admit that at the very beginning of the series, no one thought that the two fiery characters would end up together. If their history has seen many ups and downs – as well as a good dose of temporary ruptures -, Blair and Chuck got their happy end to the delight of fans. The game of cat and mouse in which the two protagonists indulged allowed their couple to be one of the most popular of Gossip Girl – and the universe of series in general. For the record, program creator Josh Schwartz (Newport Beach), explained to Vulture a few years ago that the romance between Blair and Chuck was absolutely not planned. The second was only to be an antagonist of the show, most the undeniable alchemy that united him to Leighton Meester led to a whole different story.
Their scenes together would just crackle.
Once this is established, the authors of Gossip Girl never gave up on the idea – despite the series’ many twists and turns – of finishing the two characters together. Fans of Blair and Dan, so have no regrets: the fate of the two protagonists was well and truly mapped out, despite obstacles or other love interests put on their respective paths.
