Carrie meet Samantha Jones
By Gabrielle Pantera
HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2013/10/25 – “Samantha is a wild child,” says The Carrie Diaries executive producer Amy B. Harris in a story at The Hollywood Reporter. She doesn’t have a place to live, a job comes and a job goes. “Our joke with her this whole season is we never know where she’s living and how she makes money, but she seems to be surviving. For Carrie, who’s always worrying about the future and what comes next, it’s important for her to be experiencing an uninhibited, carefree attitude about the world. For Samantha, who we learn early on has a family she can’t rely on (a mom who picked boyfriends over her), she has someone to rely on in Carrie.”
At the end of the first season Carrie (AnnaSophia Robb) faced heartbreak and become a real city girl when she moved with Walt (Brendan Dooling) into Larrisa’s (Freema Agyeman) apartment with for the summer.
The big anticipation for fans is the first meeting between Carrie and Samantha, played by newcomer Lindsey Gort. This Samantha is vulnerable and not as sophisticated as we see her later in Sex and the City.
