You Cast

Now, this is all speculation (as nothing has been confirmed) but the TikToker showcases some of the cast of “You” and how they seem to resemble Badgley’s past girlfriends or love interests in the real world. For instance, Elizabeth Lail (who plays Beck in Season 1) seemingly resembles Blake Lively, who previously dated Badgley for 3 years. Badgley and Lively both starred in Gossip Girl together.

Badgley and Zoë Kravitz allegedly dated between 2011-2013, keeping their relationship fairly private. It is alleged that Tati Gabrielle – who played Marienne Bellamy in the latest seasons of “You”- and Kravitz bear a strong resemblance to one another.

As well, Victoria Pedretti- who played Love Quinn in Season 2 of “You”- allegedly resembles Domino Kirke, whom Badgley is currently married.

Now, nothing has been confirmed regarding these claims- this is all speculation. However, it is interesting to see the comparisons that the TikToker has made regarding their appearances and the resemblances they share. Commenters also seemingly agreed with the TikToker’s claims made in the above video.

What do you think of these alleged claims- does the rotating cast of “You” seemingly resemble any of Badgley’s real-life past love interests?
