Warner Brothers has released the official photo of AnnaSophia Robb as a young Carrie Bradshaw for the new CW series The Carrie Diaries. The 18-year-old will play Carrie going to high school in New York City during the 1980’s.
Executive Producer/Writer Amy B. Harris said in a release: “The search for Carrie Bradshaw was an exciting adventure. Having been a part of the Sex and the City series, I felt such an honor and responsibility to the fans of the show to find someone who embodied the spirit of Manhattan’s favorite ‘It’ girl. When AnnaSophia Robb walked into the room, we knew we had found her. Her grace, intelligence, sense of fun and her empathetic nature make her the perfect girl to bring our young Carrie to life. The fact that she loves a gorgeous pair of heels doesn’t hurt, either.”
The Hollywood Reporter says costume designer Eric Daman is “honored” to be part of the project.
He said, “It’s a rare invitation to dress a character whose reputation truly precedes her. Having played a hand in designing for the Carrie we know and love, I am honored to be chosen to carry the torch — to illuminate the woman we know by discovering the young lady she was.”
