HBO Max has officially announced the first new member of the Gossip Girl reboot cast. Emily Alyn Lind will star in the forthcoming series, portraying a lead character in the series named Audrey, who “has been in a long term relationship and is beginning to wonder what more could be out there.” Lind has appeared in a slew of other projects, including Netflix’s The Babysitter and its sequel, and as the character Amanda Clarke on Revenge. According to IMDb, her first role was in 2008’s The Secret Life of Bees, where she played a young version of Dakota Fanning’s character Lily.
Previously it was announced that the show is set eight years after the original Gossip Girl took place. The show announced back in November that Kristen Bell would join the Gossip Girl cast once more as its OG narrator. The reboot will feature updates on what Serena, Blair, Nate, Dan, and the whole crew have been up to in the intervening years.
