One of the actors on “Gossip Girl” expressed a note of finality about his exit from the show during an appearance Sunday at the Television Critics Association press tour, TVLine.com reports.
Connor Paolo, who played Serena’s little brother Eric on the CW show, is moving on to become a series regular on the new ABC show "Revenge." Asked whether he might return to "Gossip Girl" should “Revenge” be canceled, Paolo said, “I’m done. You should never go back in life. Only forward.”
Paolo added that he’s fine with how his character’s story ended on "Gossip Girl," with Eric going to college. He added that he didn’t believe the show’s producers knew he was leaving in time to create a more definitive story line surrounding his departure.
“Eric’s going to college and he’s going to stay there,” Paolo said. “He doesn’t come home for Christmas anymore.”
