WHERE: The Soho Hotel, London

Are you a fan of the UK, Chace? I used to come more and I miss it. I have about five really good friends in London.

I used to go to the Punchbowl for Sunday roast or fish and chips. And I like West End theatre. I’ve done the BST Hyde Park festival a few times. I’m going to come back for a week in autumn.

You’re looking in fantastic shape…

I switched to a keto diet last year, which includes healthy fats such as avocado and eggs, and I have more energy I like to cook veg, salmon, steak and chicken.

I did a blood test and this diet suits me, though I only do it weekdays.

We’ve seen your tight superhero costume for new series The Boys. What’s your fitness regime?

I stepped up the frequency when I saw the suit! I work out five times a week as it’s better for anxiety and sleep. I do circuit training, pull-ups, push-ups and bodyweight dips for 40 minutes. I go to the gym in the morning to get it over with and put earphones in because I hate talking to people. I view it as work.

We’ve heard rumours of a Gossip Girl reunion…

I’m always open to talking about it, but will we push our strollers down 5th Avenue? I don’t know. It’s been rediscovered by a younger audience on Netflix, which is pretty cool. I have a feeling it would be expensive, and everyone’s schedule would have to line up, but if the situation was right, then possibly.

 Chace also revealed the fitness regime he's following in light of the tight superhero costume he squeezing into for his new Amazon Prime series, The Boys

Who do you see from the show?

I see everyone occasionally. Some have kids and are married – we live all over the world. I see Jessica Szohr (Vanessa) quite a bit. I saw Leighton Meester (Blair) at the end of last year and went to Penn Badgley’s (Dan) wedding. We’re all best friends.

Do you worry people will only know you as Nate?

It’s been good to play some grittier roles recently. The Boys is comedy and darkness – it’s been fun. There’s a superhero element to it and an amazing cast.

Are you in a relationship?

I’m happy right now. That’s all I can say. I don’t know if LA is forever – I don’t know if I’d want to raise a family there.

Is starting a family on the cards?

It’s definitely not at the moment, but maybe in the future. I have to start thinking about that now I’m 34. I try to be present where I am because as an actor you’re living a nomadic lifestyle.

It seems your greatest love is your dog?

I have a rescue 20lb Tibetan terrier called Shiner. I got him two years ago and always think: “What was my life like before this little guy?” He’s too cute for his own good.

What do you do to relax?

I like to hike and bike. I work out in the morning and then meditate. I don’t do it every day, but it’s so beneficial to help with stress. It really changes something. I used to follow the news, but it puts you in a foul mood and ruins your day.

What are you binge watching?

I watch serial killer docs. I love Peaky Blinders and I just finished Killing Eve – it’s incredible.

BTW…

  • Chace admitted that he’s wary of Instagram as he’s scared of being stalked.
  • His dog Shiner travels with him on all domestic US flights.
  • He buys teabags when in the UK — and loves Earl Grey.
  • The Boys launches on Amazon Prime Video on Friday.
