Jordan Alexander is sharing how she initially found out about the Gossip Girl revival!
The 28-year-old actress and singer now stars as Julien Calloway on the series, but it’s kind of all thanks to one of her fellow GG co-stars. ““I initially heard about the project from Emily Alyn Lind—who’s on the show with me now—because we were on a show in 2019 called Sacred Lies together,” Jordan said in an interview with Byrdie here. “She was telling me about it, and we got on really well. And she was like, ‘Oh my God, you should be part of this show.’ And I was like, ‘sure, let me try, I’ll put my best shot in, right?'”
Alexander continued: “I never heard back, which you know is super normal for the acting industry. And so you move on. But then, in August of 2020, I got a request for a screen test, which is a really accelerated part of the auditioning process. So I was like, ‘Wait, I did one audition…eight months ago, and now I’m doing a screen test?’ That was very shocking and crazy. And then, by the end of September, I was in New York.”
