'Gossip Girl' Star Michelle Trachtenberg to Rival Nancy Botwin on 'Weeds'
Michelle Trachtenberg has been the bane of the Upper East side on Gossip Girl for several years as Georgina Sparks, now she’s heading to Showtime’s Weeds to rival Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker).
Season 7 premiered with a Kohan reboot, as the series jumped forward three years after Nancy’s prison sentence. Her eldest two sons, Silas (Hunter Parrish) and Shane (Alexander Gould), have been in Copenhagen, Denmark with their uncle Andy (Justin Kirk) and Doug (Kevin Nealon). Nancy’s baby Stevie is now being raised as her sister’s son. Now, Nancy must rebuild her life within the walls of a halfway home.
Trachtenberg will guest-star as Emma, an intelligent pot-selling rival to Nancy. She will also be a love interest for Silas. Trachtenberg is slated to appear in two episodes this season, which debuted this Monday on Showtime.
