I love how some television series really launches actors/actresses careers. Gossip Girl is a great show that I have watched now and then and well, it’s nice to see that people are taking notice of the people and allowing opportunities for them to further their career, whether it’s movie opportunities (like Katherine Heigl from Grey’s Anatomy) or modeling careers like Taylor Momsen. However, I wish there were more chances for other actors, such as the amazing Tom Welling from Smallville to really further his career.
