Warner Bros. TV has released this first image of Lindsey Gort in the new series regular role of Samantha Jones in “The Carrie Diaries.”
“The Carrie Diaries” executive producer Amy B. Harris said: 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. 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.
Through a surprising connection, our young Carrie Bradshaw (series star AnnaSophia Robb) will meet one of the most important people in her life this season in a role made iconic by Kim Cattrall: Samantha Jones, a ballsy, beautiful and sexy young woman from the panhandle of Florida who has made her way and already a name for herself in the rock n roll scene of 1980s NYC.
“The Carrie Diaries” returns for Season 2 on October 25, 2013, airing Fridays at 8/7c on The CW.
