Look out Sebastian! AnnaSophia Robb’s character is moving on with a new friend and perhaps a new boyfriend on this season of the hit show The Carrie Diaries. The star recently dished on the upcoming second season, that it is “more risqué” than the show’s first.
That’s no surprise, considering that AnnaSophia Robb was recently spotted sharing a steamy kiss with costar Chris Wood on set. Could this be the start of a new relationship for Carrie? Only time will tell. AnnaSophia did say that boys will play a part in her character’s sexy and sassy new friend Samantha Jones, played by Lindsey Gort: “Boys will always be involved. They’re going to be getting into mischief throughout the city”
She doesn’t seem too sure about the influence that Samantha is going to have on Carrie, though she does seem to think they’re going to have a good time: “I think (Samantha) will be (a bad influence on Carrie). Season two is already starting out to be a bit more risque.” Her feelings for the character clearly don’t extend to Lindsey Gort, however, as she called the actress “awesome.” Executive producer Amy B. Harris agreed, stating the actress is “exciting,” and really belongs in the part: “Lindsey Gort walked into the room and owned the part. Funny and sexy with a whiff of vulnerability and an amazing dash of outrageousness” The Carrie Diaries is the prequel to the long-running popular series “Sex and the City,” and will begin airing its second season on October 25th on the CW.
I’ve added a few additional stills of AnnaSophia’s projects to the gallery: Sleepwalking (8-13) as well as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (8-11).

AnnaSophia Robb is now known for her starring role as Carrie Bradshaw in the CW’s The Carrie Diaries. Now that the show is on hiatus, the question is if Robb is rewatching all the famous SATC episodes like the rest of the country does during summer vacation.
“That’s not [a crazy question] at all,” Robb revealed to Glamour. “I’m actually rewatching them in order, so I’m on season five now.” Robb even revealed her favorite episode from the iconic series.
“It’s called “The Real Me,” and it’s when Carrie’s in the fashion show and she falls and gets right back up,” Robb said. “She’s super chill about the whole thing and [yet] she’s wearing nothing! I just loved her whole perspective on that and being who you are. I’ve definitely felt a lot of pressure at least with [The Carrie Diaries], and people’s expectations, so to be able to have the show just saying, ‘be you,’ I love that.”
Robb gets to be dressed to the nines in every episode of her hit show, but it’s set in the ‘80s! So what is Robb’s favorite Sarah Jessica Parker Carrie look? “When she’s in overalls. Also, when Pete [Aiden's dog] was running away and she’s in little workout shorts, stilettos, and a tank top, running after him in the rain. It’s just so funny because it’s so effortless. You find the closest pair of shoes that you own and just take after the dog!”
Since it is summer vacation, Robb also revealed her favorite NYC activities for the heat! “There’s a great place in New York called Victory Garden and they have goat’s milk ice cream and it’s in the West Village and have great little snacks. The Le Parker Meridien’s Burger Joint, is great for burgers. I love Laduree for their macarons. New York has Citi Bike now where you can ride bikes and then drop them off and it’s so cool. So I’m really excited to try that. And then surfing too!”
Having essentially come into her own in front of the camera, Robb is a prime example of young Hollywood done right. She’s gone from starring in a McDonald’s commercial to running around New York City in Carrie Bradshaw’s iconic Manolo Blahniks in what seems like two leaps, and she’s managed to keep a solid head on her shoulders, too. We hate to say “we told you so,” but, hey, we told you so. With acting chops that give her staying power and a wit that shines in this summer’s The Way, Way Back — AnnaSophia Robb is one of our favorite rapidly rising stars.
Unlike SJP, however, we’ve a strong feeling ASR won’t be defined by Carrie Bradshaw. With a horror flick, a few dramas, and even a Tim Burton extravaganza under her belt, Robb’s done more in her 19 years than most people do by the time they turn 50 — and she shows no sign of stopping. We consider ourselves lucky to have caught her just as she begins to break into the big leagues.
What was the best part about working on The Way, Way Back?
“From the moment I read the script, I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, it’s so well-rounded.’ All of the characters have such development — well, not Steve Carell’s character. They feel real, and they feel relatable. It was just so nice to see such well-written dialogue. I felt really good after I finished reading it. Our table read was so much fun. It was at Nat and Jim’s kitchen table. Being able to work with such talented, and happy, generous people was such a huge blessing. Nat and Jim are the bomb. I’m really excited to see the movies they make in the future ‘cause they’re going to be on the money every time.”
How big of a departure was it for you to play this character as opposed to playing Carrie Bradshaw in The Carrie Diaries?
“It was a very different character. I had finished the pilot, and then shot this film before going back to The Carrie Diaries. I’m an actor! I’d hope I would be able to play different characters. I think Susanna is very different from Carrie in the way she sees the world.”
Do you have any real Sex and The City likes?
“I love my Magnolia cupcakes and especially Jimmy Choo shoes. Just being in New York City, I feel like every woman thinks she’s a Sex and The City character. I mean everything from walking down the street, going out to dinner with your friends, or tripping over your heels — it’s all a New York moment.”
Q: To the actresses: I want to know how you got into the heads and hearts of your characters, and whether there was anything in your personal lives or youths that you drew on to play them.
Annasophia Robb: I definitely agree with Toni. My character, Susanna, was all on the page. I drew everything from the script. It’s nice to see a girl-next-door character be multi-faceted, not just one-dimensional. She’s going through things herself. Being on set and being with all these people just really got me into the headspace I needed I remember my first meeting with Nat and Jim and how we clicked. The chemistry felt so natural and comfortable. Being able to spend time with Liam and getting to know each other for the first time was great and I felt sort of adopted by Allison in a way. Being able to hang out on the set was a real privilege for me.
Q: Summer is often a time of transition and change. Jim, you talked about it a little before but can you, Nat, and your actors recall any of your memorable summers of change?
Annasophia Robb: I started acting when I was nine, and I think last summer, when we shot this, was probably my most transitional. I had just graduated high school, I was 18, it was my first movie when I was on the set by myself, and it was kinda scary and a little bit lonely at times. But to be able to spend time with an amazing cast was so much fun for me and it’s now so exciting to see the final film because it reminds me of that time.
Q: By the end of the first act, I was waiting for Owen and Trent to have a huge confrontation. I wanted something like McMurphy vs. Nurse Ratched. I don’t understand why you guys didn’t do that!
Sam Rockwell: We did do that. Owen confronts Trent at the water park. I understand your expecting more but it’s probably good you’re left wanting more. I think a taste, a little moment, is all you need.
Nat Faxon: Jim and I always try to use restraint in what we do, both in our writing and our directing. When we worked with Alexander Payne on The Descendents, we admired his ability to recognize that less is more.
Jim Rash: I think there’s something so subtle in Owen’s action, when he steps between Trent and Duncan. I think it’s almost expected that they will have a big blow-up and a throw-down, but by having him do something as small as a simple physical move, we were achieving the same thing.
Sam Rockwell: I was going to muddy that moment with an adlib, and they pulled me back. They were right because it would have diluted the moment.
Toni Collette: You may want a confrontation because you care about Duncan, but I think it makes sense that Owen confronts Trent in a gentlemanly, minimalist fashion. Duncan’s the one who gets to push him and actually show his anger, and that’s who you want it to come from.
Annasophia Robb: I think it feels real, also.
