"According to Vogue.uk, ALEXA CHUNG has joined the cast of Gossip Girl. The British presenter began filming on set in New York yesterday, and will star alongside series regulars Blake Lively and Leighton Meester.
The 28-year-year old was spotted filming scenes for the sixth and final season of the hit US show, sporting full hair and makeup.
It's yet to be confirmed how many episodes Chung will be featuring in, and no character details have been released at present - so it's unclear as to whether she'll be making her acting debut, or appearing in a cameo role as herself."
