A series that precedes Sex And The City called The Carrie Diaries is currently being filmed in New York. Young Carrie Bradshaw, originally thought to be played by Blake Lively, is being portrayed by 18 year-old AnnaSophia Robb.
Robb has starred in Tim Burton’s Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, Bridge to Terabithia and Soul Surfer. She was spotted in New York on Wednesday with signature curly Carrie/SJP hair.
The young star confirms that she has Sarah Jessica Parker’s blessing, even telling Us Weekly. “She sent me a letter! I wrote her one back, too, she was just very encouraging about it all. It was really cool!”
Original SATC creator Darren Star and executive producer Michael Patrick King (currently tied up with 2 Broke Girls) are not involved. Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz however, are. You may remember them as the people who brought you Gossip Girl and The O.C.
