Lights, Camera, Friction

Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum Michelle Trachtenberg reported for duty on the NYC set of Gossip Girl yesterday where she was spied shooting scenes for the show with GG star Blake Lively. As we all should know by now, Michelle will be playing Georgina Sparks opposite Blake's Serena van der Woodsen as an old friend from Serena's "bag girl" days who comes back to town to stir up some trouble. Here are a few of the first pics snapped of MT and BL in the Meat Packing District of NYC shooting their first scenes together:

Wee!!! I am so excited for this! Both Michelle and Blake look awesome ... they're wearing matching leggings (which, it pains me to admit, are starting to grow on me ... esp these shiny-looking rubber kind -- but I still hate capris, fyi) and killer shoes. I sincerely hope they've both had time to get their nails claws sufficiently sharpened because they both look the part of dueling minxes, I fully expect them to play those parts as well. Thinking back on the show, Gossip Girl really got a bit slow in the last few eps that we've seen ... I'm glad to know that they are amping up the bitchy drama. I'm very excited to see how this Georgina Sparks thing works out on the show ... I have high hopes that things are going to get very interesting very soon. [Source, Source, Source]
