“Sex and the City” producer Michael Patrick King isn’t enthralled by the idea of a prequel to the HBO series, but it seems Carrie Bradshaw herself is ready to pass on the torch.
Sarah Jessica Parker, who played the Manhattanite for six seasons (and two films), recently reached out to AnnaSophia Robb, who plays a teenaged Bradshaw on The CW’s “The Carrie Diaries.”
“She sent me a letter! I wrote her one back, too,” Robb told Us Weekly. “She was just very encouraging about it all. It was really cool.”
The 18-year-old said she prepared for the iconic role by “watching the show and really trying to click with the character.”
After filming her first episode in New York City, Robb said she’s prepared for “Diaries” to be compared to the original series, but she’s not worried.
“We're never going to be that,” she said. “The show is more for my generation, but it's set in the ‘80s, so it's fun.”
