Chace Crawford on shaking things up
Balance sat down with Hollywood star Chace Crawford to talk about his new project The Boys and much more besides.
If you loved smash-hit TV show Gossip Girl, there’s a strong chance you’re a big fan of Chace. Despite leading a very different life to a lot of us, Chace is no stranger to the common feeling – irregardless of fame – of finding yourself in need of changing direction, and fighting against the path you’ve found yourself put on. A popular, break-out star and Hollywood heartthrob, the dilemma of how to diversify was something Chace faced when Gossip Girl ended.
The answer was to really shake things up, which is something he’s done with new show The Boys, and promises to be yet another big hit for Amazon Video (the streaming service has won awards and plaudits for the likes of The Marvellous Mrs Maisel, Goliath, Transparent and more).
If you’ve got superhero fatigue, The Boys is the antidote. The series tells the tale of a seemingly squeaky clean team of superheroes, who come under fire when a couple of ‘regular’ humans start to twig that they’re hiding dark secrets (and do we mean dark…). It makes for an often hilarious, often disturbing show that could fill your current box-set void.
Our chat with Chace will certainly whet your appetite for a good old binge watch.
