Dust off your knock-off Manolos and stock up on virgin Cosmo ingredients: your new baby Carrie Bradshaw is here! Deadline reports that Soul Surfer star AnnaSophia Robb will portray the high school version of Sarah Jessica Parker‘s classic Sex and The City role in CW’s Carrie Diaries pilot. They had just better remember to give her Carrie’s massive six-inch roots. That’s all we’re saying!
If the show sticks to the details of author Candace Bushnell‘s prequel novel, the series will follow a teenage Carrie as she navigates life and love in the ’80s. Seeing as how actresses like Blake Lively and Emma Roberts were also allegedly in the running for the part, we’re interested to see how the sweetheart star of Bridge to Terabithia will mature into the sassy sex column we all know and love and watch for six hours every time we come down with the flu. On the other hand, Carrie is nothing if not a romantic optimist. She forgave Big how many times? Oh, and we couldn’t help but wonder…who will be her teenage version of Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda? Why mess with a good formula, right?
