Snapped on Set: Leighton Meester & Ed Westwick Get Close for ‘Gossip Girl’ (PHOTOS)

Chuck and Blair, what are you two up to?!

Meant-to-be TV couple Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick were seen filming scenes for their hit CW show Gossip Girl on Tuesday afternoon. And of course, these upper east siders were looking dapper in their designer duds.

While these two seem to be filming a happy scene, there is some sad departure news for GG fans.

Connor Paolo, who plays Eric, little bro of Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively), will no longer appear on the show.

Connor is now set to star in the new ABC show Revenge. When asked if he would ever return to this show, he told TVLine:

“I’m done. You should never go back in life. Only forward.”

On the show, Eric went off to college, but Connor mentioned: “I don’t think they knew I was leaving.”

Too bad! How do you feel about this exit? Sound off in the comments!
