Looks like Gossip Girl‘s lone black girl (oh, wait we forgot about non-talking Nicole Fiscella!) is getting some company. The CW has just cast veteran actress Gina Torres as Vanessa Abrams’ mom!
Torres, who we LOVED in Chris Rock’s I Think I Love My Wife, will play Gabriela Abrams, a “free spirit” who lives “off the grid” in Vermont.
We can’t wait for this new injection of color!
