“We haven’t even finished filming the show yet and there’s already
so much media attention and such a huge fandom. Everybody has
something to say about it, and I can’t add to the conversation. It’s
kind of overwhelming. But I’m so excited for the audience to be
caught off guard!” 

In March 2020 it was announced that Whitney Peak, then known
for her recurring role in Netflix’s The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,
was joining a superlative (and very much Insta-famous) cast for
the highly anticipated upcoming Gossip Girl reboot. The
announcement, for Peak at least, happened as part of a wider
whirlwind that she is only just coming to terms with. Covering
our Spring issue, Peak takes us from her audition process through
to filming during the pandemic and the ever-growing pandemonium
around the show, reflecting on secrecy around her character and
why fame still feels unfathomable.
