/the-carrie-diaries-set-photos-offer-first-look-at-annasophia-robb-as-carrie-bradshaw/Earlier this week, we got our first look at AnnaSophia Robb on the set of The Carrie Diaries, The CW's upcoming drama that follows Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw during her high school years. Now, The CW has released an "official" first look at the actress, who is a little more glammed-up and looking like the iconic character first personified on screen by Sarah Jessica Parker. Check her out!
AnnaSophia Robb stars as a young Carrie Bradshaw coming of age in the 1980s, asking her first questions about love, sex, friendship and family while exploring the worlds of high school and Manhattan.
The Carrie Diaries writer/executive producer Amy Harris had this to say.
"The search for Carrie Bradshaw was an exciting adventure. Having been a part of the Sex and the City series, I felt such an honor and responsibility to the fans of the show to find someone who embodied the spirit of Manhattan's favorite 'It' girl. When AnnaSophia Robb walked into the room, we knew we had found her. Her grace, intelligence, sense of fun and her empathetic nature make her the perfect girl to bring our young Carrie to life. The fact that she loves a gorgeous pair of heels doesn't hurt either."
Emmy-winning costume designer Eric Daman made the following statement.
"It's a rare invitation to dress a character whose reputation truly precedes her. Having played a hand in designing for the Carrie we know and love, I am honored to be chosen to carry the torch - to illuminate the woman we know by discovering the young lady she was."
