It’s pretty hard to believe it’s been almost a year and a half since Gossip Girl came to an end – but that doesn’t mean we love the series any less! Here are 5 surprising things you never knew about this hit TV show:

- The CW TV network (which aired Gossip Girl in the US) didn't like Ed Westwick at first. They didn’t want Ed to play Chuck Bass, insisting he looked more like a serial killer than a romantic lead.

- Leighton Meester had to make a big change just to audition for the role of Blair Waldorf. She had to dye her naturally blonde hair brunette merely to audition for the role.

- Gossip Girl could have been on the big screen.  The show was originally pitched as a feature movie with Lindsay Lohan as Blair. When that fell through, its backers, who had the rights to the stories, approached TV producer Josh Schwartz about turning it into a series.

- Penn Badgley was in the dark about Dan Humphrey being Gossip Girl. He had no idea he was Gossip Girl until the night before the scene was shot.

- The voice of Gossip Girl was Kristen Bell. She wished she’d got to play some vicious part and then actually come out as Gossip Girl in the final season of the series.
