Chace Crawford Biography

Christopher Chace Crawford was born on July 18, 1985 in Lubbock, TX to father Chris, a dermatologist, and mother Dana, a teacher. The cast included a group of up-and-coming young actors, including “Stop Loss” (2008) star Steven Strait, “Friday Night Lights” (NBC, 2006- ) hunk Taylor Kitsch and Crawford. The film made a surprising debut at the top of the box office list, turning its lead actors into overnight stars.

Crawford’s star shone even brighter in 2007 when he got cast as Nate Archibald in “Gossip Girl,” based on a bestselling book series by Cecily von Ziegesar about New York’s Upper East Side teens and their exploits. Some described “Gossip Girl” as a hybrid of the teen drama “The O.C.” Playing Nate put Crawford in the center of the show’s love triangle, torn between his longtime girlfriend Blair (Leighton Meester), and her best friend Serena (Blake Lively). The success of “Gossip Girl” put Crawford on the map, and also in the hearts of millions of teenage girls. Being in the spotlight, however, also made Crawford a favorite subject amongst tabloids and gossip bloggers, most notably when he dated 2005’s “American Idol” (FOX, 2002- ) winner and country music darling Carrie Underwood in 2008.
