Happy 25th Birthday, Penn Badgley!

by at . Comments

Gossip Girl star Penn Badgley turns 25 on this first day of November.

The actor has enjoyed a heck of a year. He's hard at work filming a solid fifth season of Gossip Girl, as well as portraying musician Jeff Buckley in the upcoming film Greetings from Tim Buckley.

He also appears alongside a slew of stars (Demi Moore, Zachary Levi, Jeremy Irons) in Margin Call, which hit theaters October 21, and has been spotted hanging out with rumored GF Zoe Kravitz.

Most importantly, though, his Gossip Girl character Daniel has experienced a renaissance of sorts as half of the CW show's most buzzed about non-couple (see our Dair tribute video contest).

Leave your birthday greetings for the handsome actor below!

Penn and Leighton

Penn Badgley says Gossip Girl's Dan and Blair are soulmates. Do you agree? Or are the New Yorker's portrayed by Penn and Leighton Meester (above) destined to be good friends and nothing more?

I absolutely agree with Penn! Dan has always been one of my two favorite characters on GG - mainly due to penn's acting and boyish charm. For your birthday... I hope the GG writers give you a hot and steamy romance scene with my other favorite GG character - Blair Waldorf. Congratsw on all your success this past year! May your next year be filled with just as much.
