Jessica Szohr has revealed she found it tough appearing in a romantic comedy.
The Gossip Girl actress has finished shooting Love, Wedding, Marriage alongside Kellan Lutz and Mandy Moore.
"That was really challenging for me, because I've never done a romantic comedy before," she said.
But her co-stars helped her out, especially Kellan, who is more known for being vampire sibling Emmett Cullen in the Twilight films.
"Kellan and I have known each other - young Hollywood is very small, so a lot of the time, you have met or have been friends with people before you work with them. It was cool to work with him, as he plays my brother-in-law, and Mandy is my sister," Jessica added.
The 25-year-old - more recognised as Vanessa Abrams in the ITV2 show - would love to have more outings on the big screen, as she looks forward to her forthcoming appearance in Piranha 3D this August.
"I would love to do more films - working on films is really fun and interesting," she said.
"We've all been doing films when we have time off. It's cool you can break down this character and be done with it in a couple of months, and you can move on. Whereas in a TV show, you're creating the characters as the show goes on, because you don't know what's going to happen."
:: Gossip Girl is shown on ITV2, and is also available on iTunes. Piranha 3D will be released on August 20.
