‘The Carrie Diaries’ Finds Their Samantha

The Carrie Diaries has found their Samantha.

The CW announced today that newcomer Lindsey Gort will be stepping into the stilettos made famous by Kim Cattrall in the original Sex and the City for The Carrie Diaries season two. Carrie will meet her future bestie through a surprising connection, and find that a young, ’80s era Samantha is already making her way in New York City and is even making a name for herself within the rock ‘n’ roll scene.

The role of Samantha will mark Gort’s first major television role, but she has previously guest starred in Vegas and will soon be seen in 2 Guns starring Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg.
