We know you’ve been waiting with bated breath. The CW finally announced AnnaSophia Robb, best known as Violet in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, will play Carrie Bradshaw in the pilot for Carrie Diaries.
Robb will take on Sarah Jessica Parker’s role, 20 years previous to her sex column. The show is based on Candace Bushnell’s book of the same name, and chronicle’s Carrie’s high school life in the 80s.
The whole concept is still strange to me. I’m a huge Sex and the City fan (minus the movies) but the show barely mentions Bradshaw’s family life. I never read the book so I’m just trying to imagine Carrie with a younger sister named Dorrit.
