This may come as a shock, but Thursday, April 9 is Leighton Meester‘s 34th birthday! The actress was only 21 when she starred in Gossip Girl, which means it has been more than 12 years since the show premiered! That’s right, the CW series aired its first episode on September 19, 2007, and there’s not a day that goes by that fans don’t miss it.
For those who forgot, the iconic show also starred Blake Lively, Penn Badgley, Chace Crawford, Ed Westwick, Jessica Szohr, Taylor Momsen and more. It went on for six epic seasons before concluding on December 17, 2012, and when it went off the air, it was definitely the end of an era!
But wait, what are the stars of the show up to now? J-14 decided to investigate, and some of them went on to land some major roles after Gossip Girl came to an end, while others decided to step out of the spotlight and start families of their own!
