“Gossip Girl”‘s Connor Paolo moves to ABC’s “Revenge”
HollywoodNews.com: There’s good news and bad news here.
Connor Paolo, who plays gay teen Eric van der Woodsen on Gossip Girl, is stepping away from the long-running drama on The CW where he was never given the prominence he deserved anyway. The character will go off to college at Sarah Lawrence.
He will be missed.
But here’s the good news for fans of Connor: He has a bigger role in the new ABC drama Revenge.
“Eric’s going to college, and he’s going to stay there,” Paolo said at the TV Critics Association Summer Press Tour this week. “As of now, my schedule is dominated by Revenge, so I don’t know that Eric’s coming back from Sarah Lawrence. We’ll see.”
He thinks his absence makes perfect sense storywise: “Eric’s been trying to get out of the household for quite some time.”
