Kate French to Guest Star on Gossip Girl

at . Comments

Actress Kate French has been cast on Gossip Girl, according to celebrity news magazine OK!, and like other recent guest stars, it looks like she could stir up trouble.

On Gossip Girl, Kate will play Elle, a mysterious nanny who comes to the UES and gets involved with none other than Ed Westwick’s character, Chuck Bass.

Kate currently stars on The L Word as outrageous actress Nikki Stevens, who is often seen in her birthday suit on the provocative Showtime series.

Elle’s arrival comes during a time when Chuck is emotionally unstable and spiraling out of control following his father’s death, and his uncle Jack (Desmond Harrington) isn't exactly discouraging Chuck's bad habits - or making his own motives clear.

But will Elle come between Chuck and Blair Waldorf?

No word yet on whether Kate French will be sporting the same wardrobe (or lack thereof) she's known for on The L Word during her Upper East Side stint.

Gossip Girl

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
