Penn Badgley on Dair Connection: Fun Stuff!

by at .

Many fans resisted the notion of a Dan-Blair romance on Gossip Girl. Others were all for it long before the show even began setting it up in the mid-season finale.

You can count Penn Badgley among those in the latter category.

At Cosmopolitan magazine’s 2011 Fun Fearless Males party, Penn was all about his character’s flight of fancy, the actor who plays Lonely Boy told MTV this ...

Dearest Daniel

Penn Badgley is all for the Dair story line.

“It was something new for my character, and I was having fun with the rapport, and I think my dialogue benefited from it. It was actually a lot of fun to work with Leighton."

"I hadn’t much. We were like the only two who had never really interacted.”

For more of what Badgely had to say, including how certain women in his life (cough, Vanessa, cough, Serena) will react to the new lovebirds, check out the video here.

Then tell us how you feel about Dair, romance-wise ...

    @Kelly Exactly! Just enjoy, people!
    Honestly the Dair storyline has been the most interesting, funny and enjoyable part of this season so far. Non of the other characters have been able to excite me as much as Dan and Blair. No matter where this goes - together or not - it was a nice change that the fans needed after so much drama between C and B. And the whole story was built perfectly by the writers. Well done!

    I think you guys need to calm down about like chair has sexual chemistry dair doesn't, chair can have good kisses dair can't, because you treat them like real people, leighton and ed don't have feelings for eachother, the "passion" that they have is acting. Dan and Serena had real chemistry because the actors were actually dating, but if ed and leighton can fake it (both good actors) then leighton and penn can. penn has more acting experience anyway.

    There's an interview with Ed Westwick in the March edition of Tatler (a UK title - you may not be readily available in the US). He's using it to promote his film Chalet Girl, and he more or less says that he's ready to leave the series

    It's funny when people say that Serena or Chuck did not get character development due to DAIR. Well, how has Serena developed the last years before DAIR? Not at all. She always takes steps back.
    And Chuck? Last year he was together with the so called love of his life and he treated her badly. He will always be ego-centric and selfish. this IS his character- there are no miracles. What do you expect? He will always turn his back on people who care about him (Blair, Lilly) on first occasion, because he never trusts anybody. Due to his past ( his father did not show him love, his mother left him), he is destined to have trust issues for life. There is no way out for him.

    How silly of both sides to fight over ratings? Why can't we all lay back and enjoy the ride?

    I am a DAIR fan and I don't care about the ratings, only about the writing. I agree with Penn who says that his dialogue has benefited from his storyline with Leighton.

    Hope that it continues this way. Unless writers run out of ideas for their conversations and bring back CHAIR as a safe move. They don't need dialogue, just sex scenes. DAIR 4ever...
