Check out the first image of Lindsey Gort in the new series regular role of Samantha Jones in The Carrie Diaries.
The Carrie Diaries executive producer Amy 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 two on October 25, 2013, airing Fridays at 8/7c on The CW.
