Serena Van Der Woodsen (Gossip Girl) Serena Van Der Woodsen (Humphrey) is a major character in the Gossip Girl television series (where she is played by Blake Lively), itself adapted from the young adult series of novels . Serena is a privileged, pretty, independent and magnetic young woman who leads a charmed life. She is the on-again-off-again best friend of Blair Waldorf, as well as the on-again-off-again girlfriend of Dan Humphrey, who travels in a slightly lower class segment of their world. Serena’s unlikely but entertaining adventures take her from high school to college, from Manhattan to numerous locales abroad, and from modeling to marriage to murder, all while fashionably dressed in Tory Burch designs and the like. Some may ultimately call her vapid (cf. Janet Malcolm of The New Yorker for some snarky comments), but she is every teen-aged girl’s dream.
