Lindsey Gort is playing a young Samantha Jones in CW’s The Carrie Diaries.
The new series airs Friday, 8 p.m. EDT.
“When the part came up, my manager was like, <<Hey, remember when you said she was a young Kim Cattrall-type? Well, you’re looking for that right now so you should come see her>>,” Lindsey Gort said in a recent interview.

“It’s such an iconic character, and I’m such a huge fan of the show,” the actress said.
Set in the 1980s, The Carrie Diaries stars AnnaSophia Robb as teen Carrie Bradshaw, who lives in Connecticut with her widowed father and younger sister. The show is based on novels by Candace Bushnell, as was Sex and the City.
Lindsey Gort’s version of Samantha Jones is a lot like the one in the ’90s HBO series and the two movies that followed.
The big difference, Lindsey Gort says, is that Samantha is “in her early 20s and is not a career woman yet, so she doesn’t have her Birkin bags and her Manolos yet. She’s figuring herself out, trying to figure out where she belongs in this world and having a good time while doing that.”

Sarah Jessica Parker showed off prominent veins on her feet when she turned up to Gordon Parks Centennial Gala in New York City last evening.
It seems that the bulging veins, which can also be seen on Sarah Jessica Parker’s hands, may be down to her very thin frame.
However despite the flaw on her feet, which were clad in sweet purple satin court shoes, Sarah Jessica Parker, 47, looked stunning for the bash.
She teamed the shoes with a velvet jacket and patterned pink dress.

The event was held at the New York’s Museum of Modern Art, alongside a host of fashion’s finest.
US Vogue editor Anna Wintour, former Vogue Paris editor Carine Roitfeld and Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld were all in attendance.
Meanwhile photographer Pater Beard posed up with talk show host Anderson Cooper.
However, it wasn’t just fashion favorites who were guests at the glamorous event.

Russell Simmons rocked up with a mystery brunette date who was courting attention in a very racy lace dress.
The frock boasted cut-out sides and showed off the black underwear the beauty was sporting underneath.
Record producer Clive Davis, singer Josh Groban and politician Harold Ford, Jr. were also on hand for the gala.
In 2008 Sarah Jessica Parker admitted that playing Carrie Bradshaw and sporting endless high heels damaged her feet.
The actress said: “I’ve basically just destroyed my feet. So they feel nothing. I have no feeling in my feet.”
