When Gossip Girl invites Michelle Trachtenberg, back to set, you just know things are gonna get spicy. But when it just so happens to be for the show's 100th episode, well, dare we say it might just be a three-alarm fire for you GG fans?
Michelle confirms that her character Georgina Sparks is indeed coming back for Gossip Girl's big milestone early next year, and tells me this of her return:
"It's always amazing coming back to Gossip Girl. We're a family. Even if Georgina always tries to break it up!"
Hmmm....So which Upper East Siders will the Mayor of Crazytown try to sink her claws into this time? Or has she changed her ways? Let's just say that the storyline of the 100th episode is so big, we've been asked by our friends who work on the show not to utter a peep about it. Yep, that big!
Regardless, Michelle can tell you she's thrilled to be asked back for such a pivotal arc.
"I can't say how many episodes [I'm doing]," Michelle tells me, "but there will definitely be a healthy dose of Ms. Sparks, and to be a part of the 100th episode, a big milestone, is very special!"
"Special" may also mean unprecidented, according to executive producer Josh Safran. "Her arc is unlike anything that she has done before on the show," Safran tells TV Line, who first reported the news of Michelle's return. "Of course, she still is Georgina and all that implies, it's just taking that in a new direction."
Michelle tells me, "What we love about Georgina is that she can't help but be evil, even when she pretends to be good."
What are you hoping Georgina will be doing this time around? Any Upper East Siders who have it coming to 'em?
