In a rare display of diversity, Gossip Girl has hired a black actress to guest arc on the show. Tika Sumpter is set to play the character of Raina, the daughter of Bart Bass’s former associate. If these photos are any indication, she seems to have something going with Chace Crawford‘s Nate.
The 33-year-old Tika is right off of the soap opera One Life to Live. She’s had bit roles in movies like Salt and Stomp the Yard 2. Could Gossip Girl be her big break? Only time and Kristen Bell‘s voice overs will tell. Check out more photos take from GG‘s Manhattan locations.
