Chace Crawford really knows how to charm the ladies as Nate Archibald on Gossip Girl, and he’s apparently managed to charm Leona Lewis, even making his way into the video for her new song “I Will Be.”

The hot prep schooler met the Grammy-nominated songstress at a dinner in her honor at the Sanderson hotel in London last month, became fast friends, and quickly won a role in her music video -even a few speaking lines.

Lewis was spotted shooting the video in the DUMBO section of Brooklyn on Friday. Isn’t that Dan Humphrey’s neighborhood? Could there be some cross-promotion synergy with Gossip Girl? We hope so!

As for the song, Katy Perry weighs in on it saying, “I was at the point of tears knowing I heard a song that would be the hugest thing ever. I mean, people, be prepared to hear this song at every wedding for a long time.”
