Connor Paolo: Eric Will 'Tough It Out By Himself'

Connor Paolo: Eric Will 'Tough It Out By Himself'

Gossip Girl actor Connor Paolo looks out on New York City in this new snapshot taken over the weekend.

Here’s what the 19-year-old actor had to share after chatting exclusively with recently:

On his summer plans while Gossip Girl is on hiatus: “I’m supposed to get down to – or up – in Amsterdam and to Montreal and hopefully to go to the beach.”

On his hopes for Eric next season: “He’s the only one left in high school. It’s time to watch him handle stuff on his own considering how many hang-ups he’s had in the past about being alone. Now that Jenny’s gone and his father wasn’t there… We really get to see him tough it out by himself.”

On whether he thinks Eric and Jenny’s relationship will last: “I think it will be strong – absence makes the heart grow fonder, as does drama. So she’s had some drama at the end of this season. Since then, they’ve forged a stronger bond.”

I think he’s a very gifted actor, but I’ve never seen “Gossip Girl”. I was very impressed by him as the teenage ruler in “Alexander”, and in the guest spots he’s done on “Law and Order: SVU”.
