Gossip Girl’s Ed Westwick is ready to do something else

It sounds like Ed Westwick is ready for a new role.

The 23-year-old actor, best-known for playing Chuck Bass in Gossip Girl, felt a connection with the role, but is now ready to do something else.

“It’s all about the work, you know; the feeling you get when you connect to the work,” he said.

“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.”

His recently role in movie Chalet Girl gave Ed the chance to play a nice boy.

“It was refreshing to go from playing an a***hole to playing someone who’s a bit more like I am — a nice boy,” he said. “He has a heart, he has a soul, and he’s still figuring out his place in the world.”
