Chace Crawford took a while before pursuing an acting career. He took up broadcast journalism at Pepperdine University, and still struggled to choose a career path. He also participated in several sports such as football and golf. His mother finally convinced him to do acting, partly through the result of a career aptitude test he took in high school.
Crawford made his acting debut in the 2006 TV movie Long Lost Son; the same year, he starred in the film The Covenant. He got his biggest break in 2007, when he was cast as Nate Archibald in the TV series Gossip Girl. The popularity of the show led him to other film roles, such as The Haunting of Molly Hartley and Twelve. He also received three Teen Choice Awards for the role.
Crawford once dated American Idol winner Carrie Underwood, but the two broke up in 2008. In 2010, he was arrested for possession of marijuana, a charge which he denied.
At present, Crawford is part of the cast of the TV series Blood and Oil.
