Some people are just perfect for roels, and it looks like Lindsey Gort will make a terrific Samantha Jones in ‘The Carrie Diaries’.
THE CARRIE DIARIES executive producer Amy B. Harris said: “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.”
Through a surprising connection, young Carrie Bradshaw (series star AnnaSophiaRobb) will meet one of the most important people in her life this season in a role made iconic by Kim Cattrall: Samantha Jones, a ballsy, beautiful and sexy young woman from the panhandle of Florida who has made her way — and already a name for herself — in the rock ’n’ roll scene of 1980s NYC.
THE CARRIE DIARIES returns for season two on October 25, 2013, airing Fridays at 8/7c on The CW!
