Before Connor Paolo was honing Declan Porter’s strange Boston accent, he was living the fab life on the Upper East Side with his sister Serena and their often-oblivious mother, Lily.
Sadly, Connor was written off Gossip Girl, but Eric and his floppy hair will live on forever in our hearts (plus, he'll be making an appearance in the series finale this December!).
Declan and Eric couldn’t be more different, but they are equally adorable. Eric has that whole honest and slightly troubled rich kid vibe going on, and Declan is all about being a street-wise lobster thief with no cash flow.
Basically, it all comes down to whether you prefer your men rich and angst-ridden, or poor and proud.
