FIRST LOOK: Lindsey Gort As Samantha Jones In The Carrie Diaries

The Carrie Diaries is looking set to become our ultimate new TV obsession when it finally hits our screens, so this first peek at Kim Cattrall-lookalike Lindsey Gort playing man-eater Samantha Jones has got us VERY excited!

Newcomer Lindsey is set to star as everyone’s favourite primped and preened lady predator as takes on the mammoth role of playing a young Samantha in the Sex And The City prequel series. And with that Samantha-esque smoulder and sassy come hither pose nailed, we reckon the casting bigwigs have made a cracking choice…

Producer Amy B. Harris said of the decision to cast Lindsey: “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.”

And it looks like Kim Cattrall herself has no complaints, either. “@LindseyGort So happy u’re playing Fearless Sam! The key 2 her is her heart. She never judges those she loves. Have a blast! Kimx” she posted on Twitter. What a lovely lady!

Set in the rock ‘n’ roll days of 1980s New York, we’re expecting plenty of scandalous sex stories and a never-ending stream of half-naked hot men to dominate Sam’s storylines. With the gorge AnnaSophia Robb already lined up to play Carrie, we now can’t wait for the rest of the cast to be unveiled…
