The producers of the “Sex and the City” prequel “The Carrie Diaries” have found their young Carrie Bradshaw, E! Online reports. The choice part goes to film actress AnnaSophia Robb.
Robb, 18, already has a substantial film resume, including appearances in “Bridge to Terabithia,” “Race to Witch Mountain” and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” She will appear in the “Diaries” pilot on the CW, based on the Candace Bushnell book.
The story notes: “In the new hourlong dramedy, we will see Carrie in the ’80s, asking her ‘first questions’ about love, sex and friendship. (So you know, a bit more network-appropriate given that she has yet to meet Samantha.)”
The older version of Carrie was played by Sarah Jessica Parker in the original HBO series.
