The unique collection centered on such highly effective feminine characters as Blake Lively‘s Serena van der Woodsen and Leighton Meester‘s Blair Waldorf. And whereas the new forged members could not supply an excessive amount of about their very own characters, they continue to be assured that the up to date model continues that legacy.
“Gender roles will be talked about and dissected,” Emily revealed. “A lot of the women in our show are very powerful, but I think they were in the original as well. We’ll be exploring what it means to be a woman in this generation, and in general, exploring ideas that we didn’t before.”
As far as whether or not there’s stress in being in comparison with the unique, the new forged members sounded assured that viewers will respect the up to date collection for what it’s.
“We realized we could take these roles and make them our own—they have their own qualities that are special and differentiate [them] from the original,” Emily stated. “I think people will relate to them on different levels.”
“I think Emily really hit the nail on the head,” Jordan added. “We’re just keeping an open mind, staying true to the essence of Gossip Girl but with a completely different take on it.”
