Tourist gatecrashes Gossip Girl set

A tourist visiting New York City unwittingly featured in an episode of Gossip Girl after she was mistaken for an extra on the set of the hit TV show.

Australian Kate Robertson visited Manhattan's Waldorf Astoria hotel last week (21Aug12) in the hope of seeing castmembers Blake Lively and Leighton Meester filming there, and she ended up accidentally wandering into a room of actors waiting to shoot a ballroom scene.


The 26 year old was styled by the hair and make-up team, and then spent six hours filming, while she documented her experiences in a series of photographs.


She tells the New York Daily News, "I just couldn't believe that I had gotten that far without anyone noticing. I sat down and I just waited for someone to tell me to leave... It was really amazing to see. But it was tedious work. They did retake after retake."
