AnnaSophia Robb hails a cab as a young Carrie Bradshaw in The Carrie Diaries. It’s the latest image released from the CW network. Set in 1984 – Bradshaw leaves her Connecticut home soon after the death of her mother to be an intern at a law firm.
The CW site reads: “Even the arrival of a sexy new transfer student named Sebastian only reminds Carrie that she spent the whole summer grieving rather than moving on with life.”
Sebastian is played by Austin Butler!
At 18 – Robb has an impressive resume. She’s been in Soul Surfer, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory and will appear in Tinker Bell and the Mysterious Winter Woods.
The show’s executive producer Amy B. Harris explained how she knew AnnaSophia was the one to get the lead role.
“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.”
