“The Carrie Diaries” has added Samantha Jones to Season 2!
The sexy role goes to Lindsey Gort, who will play the character made famous by the one and only Kim Catrall. Gort will join the cast as a series regular.
According to “Carrie Diaries” producers, Carrie Bradshaw (Annasophia Robb) will meet Samantha through a “surprising connection.” “The Carrie Diaries” describes the young Samantha Jones as “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 ’n’ roll scene of 1980s NYC.”
Catrall played the character in six seasons of “Sex and the City” and the two films. She won a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Samantha Jones and was nominated for five Emmys.
“The Carrie Diaries” returns for Season 2 on Friday, Oct. 25 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW
I don’t watch ‘The Carrie Diaries,’ is it any good? I’ll give her this, Lindsey certainly looks like a young Kim Catrall! Real question is, does she SOUND like her?
While perusing through television shows last night, I stumbled upon Sex in the City‘s SamanthaKim Cattrall in an I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter commercial. The 54-year-old actress is seen getting her ‘cougar’ fix as a younger French man feeds her.
“I’ve been dieting my whole life because I have a tremendous appetite,” she said recently at a brunch at Butter in New York to announce her new role as the spokeswoman for I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.
Luckily Cattrall, 54, says that she grew up with a healthy attitude about food and exercise. “This generation of women that I’m in, we have been brought up with Jane Fonda workout tapes and fresh air is good for you and exercise every day and drink eight cups of water…. and it’s paid off at this time of my life,” says the actress. “It gets harder because parts of my body don’t want to be on a diet, but at the same time it gets me up in the morning to work out.”
So, what is her culinary weakness? “I make a really mean chocolate cake and a glass of milk. French food and anything creamy and whippy,” she adds. “And sometimes, it’s a drink – Campari and tonic [is my favorite].”
And while she she is stepping back into the dating pool, that isn’t the reason she maintains her figure. “I don’t do it for a guy. I do it for me. It’s about taking care of yourself.”
As for romance, Cattrall, who split from husband Mark Levinsonin 2003 says, “I am starting to date, but I’m just dipping my toes. I think, especially at this point in my life, I feel pretty happy. I like who I’ve become and it’s changing always. I’m kind of embracing that.”
Kim Cattrall wore a gorgeous red wrap dress at the premiere of ‘Meet Monica Velourd‘. Today we will recreate her look for less.
To recreate this look, we found a beautiful red knit wrap v-neck dress from The Limited, a great adjustable DUDAK belt available at ALDO, and a classic pair of Nicki Pumps from Rampage.
Then to top off the outfit, we added a lovely 24k gold-over-silver tornado chain necklace, and the perfect pair of 24k gold-over-silver two-tone love knot earrings. Both of these items are available at Kohl’s.
Kim looks great in this stunning outfit and you can too without breaking the bank. This whole look can be yours for under $160! Time to go shop!
