'Gossip Girl' scoop: Meet Chuck's new 'Blair'

clemence-poesy-chuckImage Credit: Tony Barson/WireImage.com; Giovanni Rufino/The CWHarry Potter actress Clemence Poesy will be busy casting a spell on Chuck Bass this fall. Gossip Girl has tapped the actress to play Chuck’s new French fling for multiple episodes, beginning with the Paris-set season premiere.

The character, Eva, is described as a warm-hearted bombshell who joins Chuck in Paris — much to the surprise of Blair, who has been spending the summer there with Serena.

The Wrap first reported news of Poesy’s casting.

Thoughts? Will Blair chew up and spit out this little fille like some kind day old croissant? My guess? Oui!
