While we’re getting into it, let’s start at the beginning. First, the girl who plays Serena van der Woodsen on Gossip Girl is named Blake Lively. Blake has been acting since she was a kid, mostly because her parents were actors and taught acting classes, and brought her with them to those classes.

Blake’s character on Gossip Girl is supposed to be about 22 years old. In Season 1, they were juniors in high school and the show is now in its sixth season, so that calculation assumes that each season represents one year.

In real life, Blake is 25 years old. Her birthday is August 25, 1987 and she was born in Tarzana, California. Her husband, Ryan Reynolds is 11 years her senior, at 36 years old, in case you were wondering.
