‘Carrie Diaries’ First Look: It’s Samantha Jones!

Manhattan, it’s time you met your match.

Mere days after it was announced actress Lindsey Gort had been cast in the role of man-eater Samantha Jones in The CW’s “Carrie Diaries” comes our first look at the blonde in character! And it’s everything we’d expect from a 1980s Samantha—down to the belly-baring crop top and studded belt.

Producers described the young Samantha thusly (via TVLine): “Through a surprising connection, our young Carrie Bradshaw will meet one of the most important people in her life this season in a role made iconic by Kim Cattrall: Samantha Jones, a ballsy, beautiful and sexy young woman from the panhandle of Florida who has made her way—and already a name for herself—in the rock ā€™nā€™ roll scene of 1980s NYC.”

The second season of “The Carrie Diaries” picks up during the summer of 1985, with Carrie living in the downtown loft of her Interview magazine boss, Larissa, after a heartbreak back at home. It’s during these warm weather months that she meets her soon-to-be BFF. No word yet on what Samantha is doing in the city (besides sex…we assume), so we’ll have to tune into The CW later this year when the series returns to find out.

What do you think of this first look at the young Samantha Jones?
