He's probably one of the biggest teen heart-throb around the world at the moment and he's lucky because he's also on one of the most popular television shows as well.

Chace Crawford plays the Nate Archibald on the hit show "Gossip Girl" which is centered around a group of upscale New Yorkers who are at university.

The show has been noted for its sometimes racy content - from threesomes, drug use and adultery - not to mention everyone was still only in highschool at the time.

The 24-year-old Crawford was born in Lubbock, Texas and originally studied broadcast journalism at Pepperdine University and didn't try his hand at acting until he was pressured by his mother while he was in his second year of university.

Crawford has appeared in a number of films including "The Covenant", but it wasn't until his role in "Gossip Girl" that he became a household name for millions of screaming teens.

Tune in on Wednesday night at 2100 London time to watch the full interview on Connect the World.

    Shooting your show in NYC brings a lot of realism, I'm sure, to the show. My question is, what are some of the intangibles that shooting in the city has brought to the show? Also, what have you learned about NYC that surprised you?

    After growing up in a large, spread out, fairly conservative state of Texas was it hard to make the transition to living and working in cramped, liberal Manhattan? How have you had to adjust?

    If the whole world was at the tip of your fingers, if anything was accessible, and you were given three wishes ... would you take the offer? why? If yes, what would you wish for?

    Growing up in Texas, but now working all over the country, do you still feel ties to your home town? What do you miss and not miss the most about being out of the state for so long?
