Can you believe it's been five years since Gossip Girl went off the air? Although cast members have mulled over possible reunions, nothing could replace the show's original six-season run. If you're feeling nostalgic, it's time to revisit a couple of amazing clips that every Gossip Girl fan needs to see: the audition tapes for the characters of Serena van der Woodsen and Chuck Bass.
One look at these videos and it's clear that Blake Lively and Ed Westwick were destined to play their now-iconic characters. Side note: It's hard to believe that Lively was only 20 years old when the show started, and now she has several movies under her belt and is a mom of two adorable kids. (Oh, and married to Ryan Reynolds to boot.) Watch the clips below to take a walk down memory lane.
