On Tuesday morning at 5:30AM your TV Addict left Toronto with a mission. Meet fellow Canadian and 90210 star Shenae Grimes and snag some pics with the cast of GOSSIP GIRL. Well, I’m happy to report — Mission Accomplished. In fact, it was almost too easy.
While the stars from established shows such as GOSSIP GIRL, AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL and ONE TREE HILL were otherwise occupied talking to reporters on the CW’s
red green carpet, there they were. Unassumingly chatting it up in the middle of the tent at Lincoln Centre — television’s next ‘it’ cast — Shenae Grimes, Jessica Stroup, Dustin Milligan, Tristan Wilds and Michael Steger. So young and naive they didn’t even realize that they should actually be hanging out on the other side of the rope line.
My ‘reporter instincts’ quickly kicked in. I sensed I had about five minutes before the tent filled up with curious onlookers and the cast was quickly shepherded off to
safety the ‘celebrity—only’ area. So in the same manner in which a Lion might approach an unsuspecting Gazelle that had separated from the pack, your TV Addict pounced!
Being an obsessed fan of BEVERLY HILLS 90210 from day one, there were so many question I wanted to ask Shenae. But not wanting to completely freak her out, I simply offered up my congratulations, mentioned how proud we are to see a fellow Canadian pick up the torch from original Canadian cast member Jason Priestley and asked if she was a fan of the original series [she is!]
For more Shenae and the rest of the cast, head on over to EW.com for their exclusive first look with the cast from the Entertainment Weekly UpFront Party [Obviously my invite got lost in the mail!]. And check back with theTVaddict.com tomorrow for more great photos.
