The Carrie Diaries has cast its Samantha Jones in Lindsey Gort.
The relative newcomer has landed the role of the outspoken BFF of Annasophia Robb’s Carrie Bradshaw in the CW drama’s upcoming Season 2.
Of course, the role was made famous by Kim Cattrall in HBO’s hit series Sex and the City, and they’ve certainly found a dead-ringer in this youngster:
Lindsey Gort is coming on board as a series regular, which means fans can expect to see tons of Samantha in the new season alongside Ms. Bradshaw.
In a statement, The Carrie Diaries’ producers said:
“Through a surprising connection, our young Carrie Bradshaw will meet one of the most important people in her life this season in a role made iconic by Kim Cattrall.”
“Samantha Jones is a ballsy, beautiful, sexy young woman from the panhandle of Florida who makes her way – and already a name for herself – in the rock ‘n’ roll scene of 1980s NYC.”
The Carrie Diaries returns Friday, October 25 on the CW.
