The Carrie Diaries Star AnnaSophia Robb Talks To LOOK

The Carrie Diaries airs for the first time in the US today, and will see the gorgeous AnnaSophia Robb take on the role of a young Carrie Bradshaw interning in Manhattan.  

For months we’ve watched from afar as AnnaSophia filmed scenes across New York, and judging by the pictures, she makes a brilliant Carrie.

Talking to LOOK, AnnaSophia said: “It was like playing dress-up every day! Carrie’s wardrobe is every girl’s dream. I had so much fun, I loved every minute.”

Amazing! She added: ” I watched old episodes (of SATC) because I really wanted to click with the character. And I’ve read all the books. I know The Carrie Diaries is going to get compared to the original Sex And The City, but we’re never going to be that.

“There are lots of new characters and a love interest. It has the same heart as SATC, and the same beat of the city.

The show is expected to air in the UK later this year (hurry up!) and it’s already got the seal of approval from Sarah Jessica Parker.

AnnaSophia added: “She sent me a letter after I got the role. It was so sweet. She was just really nice to me about playing Carrie. She was so encouraging and supportive. I couldn’t believe I had a letter from her! I wrote back, too!”
