Ed Westwick is Chuck
Ed Westwick stars as Chuck, an overly confident and sexy bad boy, in TV2's new drama "Gossip Girl," from Josh Schwartz ("The O.C."), based on the tremendously popular book series about privileged teenagers who attend an elite private school in New York City.
An emerging young British actor who trained at The National Youth Theatre in London, Westwick was recently seen in two high-profile features.
He played the role of Alex in Alfonso Cuarón's "Children of Men," opposite Clive Owen and Julianne Moore.
Westwick was also seen in the role of Zoran in Anthony Mighella's "Breaking and Entering," opposite Jude Law, Juliette Binoche and Robin Wright Penn.
Westwick stars in the film "100 Feet," a supernatural thriller written and directed by Eric Red.
Starring alongside Famke Janssen and Bobby Cannavale, Westwick plays Joey, a handsome Brooklyn delivery boy who delivers groceries to Janssen's character, who is under house arrest. It is not long before they begin a heated affair.
He can also be seen in "Son of Rambow," an independent film directed by Garth Jennings. Westwick plays Lawrence, a bully and father figure to his devoted younger brother.
"Son of Rambow," which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, caused quite a buzz, selling for the highest amount at the festival.
Additional credits include guest-starring roles in "Afterlife" for ITV1, "Casualty" for the BBC, "Doctors" for the BBC and "Dream Team" for Sky One.
When not filming "Gossip Girl" in New York City, Westwick resides outside London.
