Q: Is Ed Westwick playing real-life serial killer Douglas Clark in Wicked City? The story sounds similar.
—Judd J., Lexington, Ky.
A: Wicked City, airing Tuesday nights on ABC, is set in Los Angeles during the ’80s, but it is not the story of Clark, who was one of that era’s “Sunset Strip Killers.” Westwick, 28, best known as Chuck Bass on Gossip Girl, says the role actually gave him nightmares. “There were evenings that I went home and wasn’t able to completely let go of stuff, and that crept into my dreams,” he says. “But this is why I act—to explore emotions and tell stories.”
