Confirming our long-held suspicion* that those Harry Potter books really were bad news is your very first look at the new season of GOSSIP GIRL. Rest assured — your eyes are not deceiving you — that is not Blair strolling down the Champs-Élysées** with a very alive-and-well Chuck Bass! Rather, it’s none other than Potter alum Clemence Poesy who according to Michael Ausiello has been tapped to play le BASStard’s new French fling Eva for a multi-episode arc. More first look photos of which can be found after the jump.
* Not really.
** Street may-or-may-not be the Champs-Élysées, but it sounds French and is the only rue in Paris we know!
