Remember that post I wrote back in January about the CW’s announcement to turn the popular book, The Carrie Diaries, into a weekly TV show? If not – you can quickly read here to update yourself. Earlier this year, when the show-in-progress went public, they had little knowledge of who would play the irresistible Carrie, and I promised you guys as soon as it was released I would update you all. Well, the adorable young blonde seen in movies such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Bridge to Terabithia, and Soul Surfer, AnnaSophia Robb, is the lucky chosen one!
Executive Producer, Amy Harris said “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.” I’d have to agree with Harris, Robb’s persona and overall appearance just seems to fit a young Carrie perfectly. Not to mention, having the maturity and professional acting skills from a young age, Robb is very talented and will really take in the experience which I think will shine through in the episodes. I am also looking forward to seeing the outfits they pull and design for her, as Carrie had a stylish edge to her even in her early days throughout the novels.
What do you guys think – Are you as excited as I am? Do you think AnnaSophia will live up to the high expectations?
