Michelle Trachtenberg on Next Season’s Gossip Girl


Michelle Trachtenberg, otherwise known as Georgina Sparks, Gossip Girl’s ball-shrinking antihero, has a new show in the works, NBC’s Mercy. Thus, we at Daily Intel HQ have been fretting that, come September, the bitch would not, in fact, be back for a full season. But at last night’s Guess-store party, Trachtenberg put those fears to rest by saying she plans on juggling the two roles — possibly forever. “Georgina’s not going anywhere,” she informed us. “She’s always going to be an element of Gossip Girl,” she said. “She’s never gonna die. There’s nothing you can do to kill her. It’s like one of those horror movies where they’re like, ‘She’s dead,’ and then she wakes back up and is like, ‘No, I’m not.’” So, what’s in store for next season, now that the cast is out of high school?, we asked. “Well, for Georgina, it’s her first time in college,” Trachtenberg said. “So there is definitely going to be a lot of college drama. But probably no freshman fifteen.”
