AnnaSophia Robb is the name on everybody’s lips today; she’s just been confirmed as the person who’ll play a teenage Carrie Bradshaw in the TV adaptation of Candace Bushnell‘s teen novel, ‘The Carrie Diaries.’
Being just 18-years-old, she definitely fits the bill, as she’s blonde, skinny, and has almost identical facial features to predecessor Sarah Jessica Parker. Her acting career to date has seen her be cast as surfer Bethany Hamilton in the ‘Soul Surfer‘, and has also appeared in ‘Race to Witch Mountain‘, and ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory‘.
The show’s plot will revolve around Carrie‘s initial move to New York, where she discovers her love of writing and fashion in her late teens. The show will be produced by ‘Warner Bros.‘, and its pilot will air in the States on the ‘CW‘ channel in May.
