(KBCW) – Samantha Jones arrives on “The Carrie Diaries.” Just as coveted as casting AnnaSophia Robb as Carrie Bradshaw, Lindsey Gort has been selected to covet the role of Carrie’s long-time BFF. Her resemblence to the original Samantha, Kim Catrall is uncanny.
Gort’s credits include an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, singing on “Dancing With The Stars,” a role in the CBS’ series “Vegas” and a role in the upcoming film “2 Guns” starring Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington.
“Sex And The City” and “The Carrie Diaries” creator, Candace Bushnell tweeted her introduction to Lindsey Gort…(see below)
Samantha Jones’ character is described as “…a ballsy, beautiful and sexy young woman from the panhandle of Florida, who has already found her niche in New York’s rock ‘n’ roll scene.” And that their meeting will be of much importance in Carrie’s life.
Already, Kim Catrall gave her blessings to Lindsey:
“The Carrie Diaries” return to KBCW Fridays starting at 8:00pm, October 25.
