The Carrie Diaries

The CW’s Sex and the City prequel The Carrie Diaries kicks off Season 2 on Oct. 25 with the introduction of Carrie’s future BFF Samantha Jones, played by Lindsey Gort.

“I was blown away,” raves executive producer Amy B. Harris, adding that while no one could duplicate Kim Cattrall‘s Golden Globe-winning work as the PR maven, Gort “really came at the role with her totally own take, yet I felt the roots of ­Samantha in her — she brings it.”

She also brings an ­interesting twist: Turns out, Samantha is the cousin of Carrie’s frenemy Donna LaDonna.
