The Carrie Diaries
“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.
