Sometimes life chooses a path for us, sometimes people close to us choose it, and sometimes we choose it for ourselves. As he was born into a family with academic leanings, one would expect the popular British actor and singer Ed Westwick to become an academic, but instead, he has chosen his own path and is certainly enjoying it.
His parents supported his passion from a very young age. Ed Westwick is most popular for the role he played in the CW television series Gossip Girl. The young, handsome, and energetic man effectively played his role as Chuck Bass in the series. He has been active in the film scene for over a decade and has received several awards for his contribution to the industry. Let’s take a look into the life of the British actor.
Ed Westwick Bio (Age)
Ed Westwick was born on June 27, 1989, in Hammersmith, London, by Carole and Peter Westrick as Edward Jack Peter Westwick. His mother, Carole, was a school physiologist, while his father was a practicing lecturer. An academic family, one might say, and you would be right. He is the family’s third child, with his other siblings being two older brothers whose information – identities and occupations – is not known.
He is of English descent, and although he comes from an academic family, he did not choose a profession like his parents but pursued his own passion: music and film. Before beginning his career in both fields, he attended Barclay School in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, where he grew up. It is interesting to note that Ed Westwick began taking music and drama lessons at the age of six.
After his education at Barclay School, he continued his education at North Hertfordshire College. However, he did not earn a degree from that college but instead took A-levels or pre-university examinations in communications, law, and economics.
Ed Westwick Career
Ed Westrick began his entertainment career with acting and is best known for it. Before his debut film in 2006, he visited the National Youth Theatre in London. He made his first film appearance in the movie Breaking and Entering as Zoran. He received this performance as a result of his success at a casting that was sent to his theater.
After this film, he appeared in other films, such as a supporting role in Children of Men as Alex. While working on films, Ed also starred in British television series such as Doctors, Casualty, and AfterLife.
The following year was very eventful for the young actor as he secured his groundbreaking role. Before he played the lead role in the series Gossip Girl, for which he is best known, he starred in Son of Rambow as Lawrence Carter. He became famous when he appeared in the television series Gossip Girl. It was an adaptation of the novel Gossip Girl by Cecily von Ziegesar. He appeared in the film as Charles ‘Chuck’ Bass and had to adopt an American accent. He played the lead role in the series for about three years and appeared in 107 episodes.
This series was, as has already been said, the turning point for Ed Westwick. Because of his work on the series, he was listed in People’s Magazine as one of the Sexiest Men Alive in 2008 and as one of the 100 Most Beautiful in the following year. The series also earned him two awards for Best TV Rogue at the Teen Choice Awards 2008 and 2009. Ed was also included in Entertainment Weekly’s list of “Best Dressed TV Character of 2008” and “Best Performance”.
In the years that followed, the on-screen actor became more and more prominent. In 2009 and 2010, Ed appeared in films such as S. Darko and The Commuter as well as the popular television series Californication. In the latter, he played the lead role of Chris “Batt”, a young man who is fascinated by vampire books, stories, and literature.
Ed Westrick has shown the world that hard work and determination pay off, considering what he has accomplished in just over a decade in the industry. His hard work has also earned him the support of business deals, including his contract with the K. Swiss shoe line in 2008.
Among other films he has starred in, Ed also starred in the tragic Shakespearean romance Romeo and Juliet, where he played the role of the villain, Juliet’s cousin Tybalt. In 2017 Ed played the role of Ben Collins in The Crash. That year he also starred in two television series, one was the animated sitcom Family Guy and the other was Snatch as Sonny Castillo. He is currently working on the series White Gold as Vincent Swan.
Ed was not so successful in music. He is part of a punk band called The Filthy Youth. The band was formed in 2006 and has released singles like Orange and Come Flash All You Ladies. These songs were used in the popular American series Gossip Girls.
Is He Gay, Dating a Girlfriend, or Married to a Wife?
Ed Westwick is definitely neither gay nor married, but he’s in a relationship that’s a little dicey and insecure right now – we’ll tell you why in a moment. He began his relationship with Jessica Michael Serfaty in May 2017, and Jessica is a single mother of a boy named Roman Serfaty. She is also a model and an actress who is relatively popular.
The couple has been together for about a year and during this time they decided to live together. However, recent information from September 2018 indicates that the actress has left the shared house and now lives alone. One source noted, however, that he has not separated, but is instead of taking time to focus on himself and his career.
The famous former cast of Gossip Girls worked hard to be where he is now. He has starred in over 10 films and television series. These appearances have earned him enough to give him the luxury he currently enjoys. In addition to the paychecks from each acting role and also his music, he has also received some compensation for his awards. According to a recent estimate, the British actor Ed Westwick has a net worth of $4 million.
