Introducing the luckiest girl in Hollywood.
If you're a young actress in Tinsel Town, there was only one pilot you were desperately vying to get cast in this season: The Carrie Diaries.
The prequel to the Sex and The City franchise is all the buzz in La La Land, set to take a prime spot in the CW lineup next fall with Gossip Girl producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage blazing the trail. One big question has been hanging in the air for MONTHS: who would get the extreme fortune of stepping into the Jimmy Choos of a young Carrie Bradshaw? We just got our answer! It's….
AnnaSophia Robb, best known for her roles in Soul Surfer and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, has landed the coveted role as New York's "it" girl during the 1980s, way before she met Mr. Big and is just starting to learn the intricacies of love, sex and friendship!
A plum part for a rather unknown actress. But maybe that's a good thing, getting someone who isn't as seasoned? She has no reputation to compete with, so it gives her a clean slate to establish herself. Still, the shadow of Sarah Jessica Parker has to be a dark place to start in!
Are U happy with this choice? Think she has what it takes to fill Bradshaw's shoes?
