As previously announced, the second season of “The Carrie Diaries” will bring a familiar face; Carrie Bradshaw’s future BFF Samantha Jones!
Lindsey Gort has landed the coveted role, and we must admit she is a dead ringer for Kim Cattrall, who originated the role in the hit HBO series “Sex and the City.”
“In another nerve-wracking search to create the amazing characters we all came to know and love on “Sex and the City,” we went out in search this year for a young Samantha Jones,” noted executive producer Amy B. Harris, in a statement.
”Lindsey Gort walked into the room and owned the part. Funny and sexy with a whiff of vulnerability and an amazing dash of outrageousness, Lindsey is our exciting choice to play the young Samantha Jones.”
Are you excited to see how Gort handles the iconic role?
New episodes of “The Carrie Diaries” air Fridays this fall right here on the CW Philly!
