It is not uncommon to come across an A-list celebrity enjoying Cape Town’s beautiful scenery, landscapes, and wildlife, even during the midst of a worldwide pandemic. The most recent celebrity spotting in the Mother City includes Gossip Girls’ very own Ed Westwick.

Westwick, who is most well known for playing bad boy Chuck Bass in the hit TV show Gossip Girl has been spotted enjoying everything South Africa has to offer. The actor was first seen at the Four Seasons Hotel in Johannesburg a week ago. Westwick was then spotted at the award-winning Lion Sands private reserve in the Kruger National Park, where he was lucky enough to see an adult cheetah and elephants.

He then moved on to the stunning La Residence, an exclusive hotel in the heart of Franschhoek. According to Westwick’s latest social media posts, he arrived in Cape Town on Friday [January 8], so he has yet to see what our beautiful city has to offer.

Westwick had a successful career on the hit TV show Gossip Girl, which lasted for an impressive five years, between 2007 and 2012. Since then the actor has featured in a number of series and movies, including the English sitcom White Gold and the film Enemy Lines, which came out in 2020.
