Looks like the cast of Gossip Girl is – wait for it – quacking up!
While shooting scenes for The CW drama’s upcoming fifth season, Leighton Meester mingled with a local duck at New York’s Central Park Wednesday.
The actress was later joined by costar Ed Westwick, who shared some screen time of his own with the brown bird. Lately, Westwick has mostly been accompanied on set by the show’s newest addition, a dog. Things are becoming a real animal house on the Upper East Side!
