The year 2006 was Chace Crawford’s first year as a professional actor. He marked his acting debut in the horror-thriller film The Covenant (2006) where he portrayed the character of Tyler Simms, quickly followed by a role in the thriller telefilm Long Lost Son (2006). A year after marking his acting debut, Crawford landed his breakout role on the highly-acclaimed teen drama series Gossip Girl (2007-2012), starring alongside Penn Badgley, Blake Lively, Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick. The talented actor played the main character Nathaniel ‘Nate’ Archibald throughout the 6-season run of the series. Crawford’s performance on Gossip Girl earned him the Choice TV Breakout Star Award at the 2008 Teen Choice Awards followed by 3 consecutive Choice TV Actor: Drama Awards in 2009, 2010 and 2011.

During his stint on Gossip Girl, Crawford equally recorded a number of acting credits on the big screen including lead roles in the supernatural horror film The Haunting of Molly Hartley (2008) followed by the teen drama film Twelve (2010).

Is He Married? Girlfriend

Though not married, the Hollywood hunk has had his fair share of high-profile relationships. Since July 2015, he has been romantically involved with fellow movie star Rebecca Rittenhouse. The duo are said to have met in July 2015 when they co-starred on the short-lived soap opera Blood & Oil.
