10 Things You Didn’t Know About the Cast of ‘The Carrie Diaries’

By  | 

Is anyone else as obsessed with The Carrie Diaries as we are? We can't get enough of AnnaSophia Robb as the young Carrie Bradshaw. Her style is killer on this show and we are so jealous of the wardrobe she gets to wear! Plus, girl got to kiss Austin Butler on a regular basis during the entire first season. Not a bad day at the office, right?

Well, she may not be kissing him much in season 2 because last season ended with Austin's character Sebastian kissing Carrie's best friend Maggie! So much drama. While Carrie's down a BFF and BF, she will be gaining a new friend this season. Newcomer Lindsey Gort is taking on the role of a young Samantha Jones. The older version of this character in Sex in the City was portrayed by Kim Cattrall and we have to admit, Samantha looks exactly like Kim! Talk about perfect casting.

Since the first episode of the new season aired on Friday, we wanted to celebrate with a little cast trivia. We rounded up some facts on the some of the actors to get to know them a little bit better! So, here's a list of 10 things you didn't know about the cast of TCD.
