Chace Crawford is a Very Good Kisser

at . Comments

So says Madchen Amick.

The actress, who plays Nate Archibald’s mature, beautiful love interest on Gossip Girl, makes out with the handsome 23-year-old - and certainly causes plenty of drama in Monday's season premiere, "Summer Kind of Wonderful."

Luckily, she’s not above kissing and telling.

“Chace is a very good kisser,” Amick, 37, says. “If anyone gets the opportunity to kiss him ... he will not disappoint.”

It appears not, at least from the make-out scene in question.

The Season 2 premiere of Gossip Girl catches up with Nate and pals Serena (Blake Lively), Blair (Leighton Meester), Chuck (Ed Westwick), Dan (Penn Badgley) and Jenny (Taylor Momsen), at the end of the summer.

“[Nate] has been keeping busy having an affair with an older married woman,” Amick explains. “Things continue [with Nate], but she gets very intertwined with the other characters and there’s a lot that I’m not supposed to say.”

However, of her story arc, which she says will last four episodes, Madchen Amick will say that “she causes a lot of trouble.”

The actress, who has two teenagers, says her kids got to visit her on the set, but she didn’t let them watch her maul Crawford.

“That just would be completely wrong,” she says, though she's not against them seeing the racy — and controversial — show on TV.

“They’re very savvy. They’ve seen me do stuff in the past. They’ve seen me be a killer,” she says of her 15-year-old daughter and 16-year-old son. “They know it’s all make-believe. It’s not going to affect them.”

As for Chace's younger Gossip Girl cast mates, Amick says she’s impressed at how they’re handling all the attention.

“Everywhere these people go, when they’re filming or going home or going to dinner or whatever, there are masses of fans following them [and] huge crowds of paparazzi,” says Amick, who says she’s tried to stay out of the spotlight since starring in the eerie TV classic Twin Peaks in the early ’90s, when she was a teenager. “I really don’t envy the kids because they’re right in the middle of it."

“But they seem to be very mature, savvy, young actors. They don’t seem to be angry about it and they don’t seem to have huge egos because of it either. I don’t know where they found this group, but they all seem to have level heads.”
