AFTER years of watching Blair Waldorf and Serena van der Woodsen plot and scheme, it seemed almost impossible that the Gossip Girl producers could introduce a nastier character.
The actress recently co-founded food business The Trencher Girls, with photographer and best pal Nicola Tallarico.
The duo have been making a name for themselves on the healthy food scene with their colourful creations, and plan to launch their website soon.
In 2011, De Fer starred in the low-budget Western film Mattie, which was released on DVD under the title Renegade.
In April 2011, The CW announced De Fer would have a major-recurring arc in both the fourth and fifth seasons of Gossip Girl.
De Fer reprised her role of Ivy in the series' sixth and final season and was listed as a main cast member.
In January 2012, De Fer called off her engagement to jewelry designer Mike Pereria, whom she had been dating on and off since 2002.
The series premiered on September 11, 2005 to 7.2 million viewers, but received generally negative reviews from critics. De Fer starred in her theatrical film debut Flicka, released in October 2006.
