Gossip Girl Scoop: Lost Star Replaces Illeana Douglas as Lily's Sis

Gossip Girl has solved its Aunt Carol problem.

The CW soap has recruited Lost‘s Sheila Kelley to guest star as Lily’s sister Carol after Illeana Douglas was forced to drop out at the 11th hour for scheduling reasons.

The character, who is slated to show up in the spring, was originally played by Krysten Ritter in GG‘s season 2 flashback episode/backdoor spinoff pilot.

    Wannabe Tina Fey? No thank you.

  2. Sarah says:

    Ew, did you seriously just call her a Lost “star?” Us Losties have been trying our hardest to forget that Zoe ever existed.

      Lost star???? I mean when I first read that without looking at the pic I thought you meant… I don’t know, Evangeline Lily

  3. Jackson says:

    LOST “star”? Haha. Worst actress to EVER appear on LOST. I cheered her character’s death.

  4. xav says:

    Ah, remember that time she taught Lisa Edelstein how to poledance for House? Awesome.

    Anyway, she’s Richard Schiff’s wife so I love her by proxy.

    Nooo I really though Illeana was a perfect grown up Krysten Ritter.

  6. Zeus says:

    I hated her on Lost! I couldn’t wait until her inevitable death! Plus, unless she is a very good actress, she gives off way different vibes than I would expect her GG character to be like. Oh wait, she isn’t a great actress. So….no.

  7. ElisBlack says:

    LOL totally agree !!!

  8. SunKrux says:

    HA! This is the second time she’s been brought into a show to replace an actress playing a “sister”. She replaced Jo Anderson way back when on NBC’s “Sisters” as the half sister Charlie. :D

  9. Emily says:

    Ugh- I always called her fulgy Tina Fey. I eagerly awaited her death and cheered it.

  10. Tamara says:

    Illeana Douglas looks a lot more like Krysten Ritter (or I guess since Krysten is younger, she looks more like Illeana…). I don’t really care who plays her, I’m just looking forward to seeing what she’ll be up to on the UES.

  11. Summer says:

    AUGH! NO! WHY?!

  12. Carson says:

    It is really ballsy to call her a “LOST” actress. Just a stretch. Gossip Girl can have her.

  13. Kate says:

    Ew. Hated her so much on LOST that I gag whenever I see her on any thing.

  14. Jenny says:

    Never heard of her but Gossip Girl is about pretty people and sorry she’s fug!

  15. Evan Meadow says:

    I’m gonna have to be the old fogey to say “What no one remembers her on LA Law?”

  16. dee123 says:

    She can’t act so i guess she will fit in perfectly on GG, especially if she has scenes with Chase Crawford for example.

  17. alexis says:

    um…debbie from singles! awesome

  18. Mitch says:

    What star? She was in a grand total of five episodes of the series. That’s like saying Beth Broderick was the star, since she was also in five episodes. Same with Neil Hopkins, Fisher Stevens, Brad Henke, and Sterling Beaumon. Are they “stars of the series” too?
