Brittany Snow, Andrew McCarthy Film Spinoff

at . Comments

As we know by now, Brittany Snow will star as a younger Lily van der Woodsen (formerly Lily Rhodes) in flashbacks on the May 11 episode of Gossip Girl.

The flashback sequences will set the stage for a Gossip Girl spinoff pilot, which will follow Lily's adventures in Los Angeles as a rebellious teenager.

If feedback is good, the new show will likely be picked up for the fall season.

Andrew McCarthy plays her father, Rick. Here's them on the set this week:

Will we like what we see of young Lily when we meet her in six weeks?

"We're taking some artistic liberties," says Snow. "Hopefully, the audience will see it as a portion of her life and not directly connected to who she is now."

Gossip Girl Quotes

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

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.
