Hilary Duff is all smiles on the set of "Gossip Girl." - Johns PkI/Splash NewsThe day that Upper East Siders have been waiting for has finally arrived: Hilary Duff has reported to the set to begin shooting her role on "Gossip Girl"!
You'll recall that when Season 2 ended, it was graduation time and most of the show's main characters were headed off to college. That's where Duff comes in. The actress/singer plays Olivia Burke, a famous movie star (what a stretch) who attends New York University in hopes of enjoying a traditional college experience.
It's there at NYU that she'll become roomies with Vanessa (Jessica Szohr) and get close to Dan (Penn Badgley), Vanessa's BFF. (Check out how she's looking at him in these photos!)
What will Dan's ex, Serena (Blake Lively) -- who went off to Brown University -- say? Will Vanessa approve? It's not clear yet exactly what's going to happen, but you can be sure there's gonna be plenty of drama worth texting to Gossip Girl!
Look for Duff to strut her stuff beginning in Season 3's fourth episode, airing October 5.
