There were smiles, cake and even a food fight when the stars of Gossip Girl shot the final scenes of the hit series.
The 27-year-old actor – who played Nate Archibald – showed his silly side by posting photos of himself covered in cake on his Facebook page.
Crawford’s hair, chest and part of his face were smothered in white icing. He wrote: “Who wants some cake? :D”
His co-stars Michelle Trachtenberg (who played Georgina Sparks) and Penn Badgley (who portrayed Dan Humphrey) also got in on the cake smearing fun. Lively posted a photo of the pair with icing on their face, diving into a slice.
The 25-year-old actress – who wed The Proposal star Ryan Reynolds last month – shared more poignant pictures on her Instagram page. They included a shot of cupcakes decorated with “XOXO” and “Gossip Girl” on top.
She also uploaded a shot of the cast members’ chairs lined up on set, each one featuring a name of a character. Lively wrote: “Goodbye Gossip Girl! Blair, Lily, Chuck, Dan.”
The cast and crew later headed out on the town for a glitzy wrap party.
When Gossip Girl hit TV screens in 2007 it made household names of Crawford, Lively, Taylor Momsen, Leighton Meester and Kelly Rutherford.
Fans have been offered a glimpse of the final storyline as photos taken of the cast filming on location suggests that Lively’s character Serena van der Woodsen marries Dan.
