“Look, for everything they have going for them, the money and the wit and everything, they’re still kind of an underdog couple because they’re still battling an uphill struggle: the external influences of everyone else in their world trying to get something from them or trying to get them. It’s tragic in that way. It’s kind of funny because I’m going to do Romeo and Juliet, the film, and in a way it kind of resembles that. That’s a romance tragedy and, in a way, Chuck and Blair are a romance tragedy. So much has happened that if they can’t get it together then that’s the tragedy because they do love each other and there’s been so much external influence. It’s everything else going on around you when you know it should just be you two.”
— Ed Westwick answers the question, “Why do you think fans are so invested in Chuck and Blair? What is it about them that has turned “Chair” into this iconic TV couple?”
GG: If you had your choice, how would you want Gossip Girl to conclude?
Ed Westwick: Ah man that’s the billion dollar question, isn’t it?We have had so many cliffhangers at the end of seasons with like, ‘Will Chuck and Blair get together, won’t they?’ and obviously they haven’t.
I mean I’m sure they’re going to give it the fairy tale ending the series deserves.
Hopefully, Blair and Chuck will end up together. I would like it to end that way.
But as to how, I am not sure how I want to see it happen.
“Though Westwick tells us he has “no idea” what the future holds for “Chair,” he, like many fans, personally hopes they find their way back to each other. “Yeah, I like kissing Leighton,” he says. “She’s so great. Leighton is gorgeous. I like working with her. She’s very talented and she’s fantastic to work with. Sure, why not?”
