Chace Crawford is the new face of Diet Coke in Australia. The Gossip Girl star is currently in Sydney, Australia promoting the brand and posed for photos with fans in Martin Place on Monday (April 23). The 26-year-old actor is Down Under until Wednesday – but made time to do an interview with Popsugar Australia.
Chace talked about being a new uncle – since his sister just had a baby.
He said, “It’s definitely life-changing, even as removed as I am, being the brother. It’s the most beautiful thing. It’s indescribable. He’s a couple of weeks old and he’s just the most beautiful little thing. There are a lot of photos being taken and every move is being documented. I’m not worried about the boy — I think he’s come into a good place! He’s gonna be OK.”
On his impressions of Sydney and Australia he exclaimed, “It’s beautiful! I’ve always wanted to come, and with the opportunity to come with Diet Coke and work with them down here, it was too good to pass up. I’ve always gotten along so well with people from here, even just random people I’ve just met. I’m from Texas, so there’s a very laidback feel — you’ve got the beach atmosphere, the great weather. I went on a boat on the water yesterday and it was beautiful.”
Asked about his relationship with his Gossip Girl co-stars he says it’s “really novel and fun.”
“It definitely becomes a family. I can’t speak for everyone but I have a nice, special relationship with everyone. I love them all, I really do. We’ve all hooked up with each other [laughs], the storylines come around and switch up so you work with one person a bit more, that’s a treat. When you’re working 16 hours a day on set, it’s such a blessing to be able to get along and have a laugh with the people you’re working with.”
