Character Bio

Lily van der Woodsen photo
The multiple-divorced, ex-ballerina, and socialite mother of Serena and Eric van der Woodsen, Lillian has a colored history as a former groupie of Dan and Jenny's father, Rufus, that she would rather not acknowledge. Her previous marriage before Rufus Humphrey was to Bart Bass. Despite her constant concern for appearances and status in high society, it can be assumed that she lived as indulgently as Serena during her wild child years. Her similarity to Serena can especially be seen when she cries and is unable to make any decisions, both of which are behaviors commonly seen in Serena. It is revealed she was also institutionalized at 19 much like her son Eric. It was later revealed that it was not because of a suicide attempt, but because she was pregnant with Rufus's child. Rufus and Lily returned to New York, and became a couple. The character is portrayed by Brittany Snow in flashback sequences. In the last episode of the second season, Lily and Rufus became engaged and married in the fifth episode of the third season.
