“Before there was sex, before there was the city, there was just me. Carrie. Carrie Bradshaw”
I have to talk about ‘The Carrie Diaries’ I recently found about this whilst reading Company mag and the beautiful Anna-Sophia Robb was on the cover because she was talking all about the new television series she is in which was aired in America, I was luckily enough to watch it though and OMG I LOVE IT.
So let me tell you a little bit about what this television series is all about… So you may notice the name, very much like the lovely Carrie Bradshaw, like myself and many others we watched her love life go through lots of different paths in Sex and the city (I am obsessed, have the box set and the two films, I make an effort to watch them at least once a month) until finally she falls in love with Mr Big. So #’The Carrie Diaries’ is all about Carrie Bradshaw when she is growing up, whilst in high school from the age of 16, her love life, friendships, new internships, fashion, losing her V plates, losing her mum… This series shows where the Carrie from Sex and The City came from, how she entered her life into the New York City writer as we were to know and fall in love with.
With an amazing cast, bringing some new faces on our screens and some faces we will recognise it is brilliant. The Carrie Diaries is set in the 1980’s where she is in her first year of high school (junior year), based in Castlebury – Connecticut. She lives with her dad Tom Bradshaw (played by Matt Letscher) and her younger sister Dorrit Bradshaw (played by Stefania Owen). She has three best friends Maggie Landers (Katie Findley), Jill Chen Aka Mouse (Ellen Wong) and Walt Reynolds (Brendan Dooling), the not so nice Donna LaDonna (Chloe Bridges) and her romance interest Sebastian Kidd (Austin Butler), not forgetting her new best friend in the city; Larissa Loughlin/Larissa Loughton (Freema Agyeman). Having a cast like this is just brilliant, of course there is more that come and go through the first series but these are the one that stay all through out.
With the Series being aired on CW in the states, it was picked up by the makers of ‘Gossip Girl’ launched onto our screens January of this year (2013) and the second series will be aired in October 2013. If it comes to the UK again we should see it later on this year, potentially earlier in the year but who knows if it will come back! All I can say is get your hands on the DVD because it is just pure fab! It even has the first time Carrie Bradshaw puts on a pair of Manolo Blahnik’s and then owns a pair! #AMAZING.
That is all you really need to know, try find it and watch it because I love it and if you anything like me, mad for some more Sex and the City then you will too!
