7 Things You Didn’t Know About The Carrie Diaries

Slide 1 of 4 | View On One Page

The Carrie Diaries ran on The CW for two seasons from 2013 to 2014, and although it focused on a young Carrie Bradshaw during her high school years as she was beginning her love affair with New York City, it didn’t end up becoming the hit that Sex and the City once was. We’re still a little disappointed that the show was cancelled so soon, which is why we have 7 things that most people don’t know about The Carrie Diaries:

7. Alycia Debnam-Carey as Carrie

Alycia Debnam-Carey – star of Fear the Walking Dead – auditioned for the role of Carrie. She actually made it to the short list. She became one of the top contenders for the position, but lost out to AnnaSophia Robb. She has no regrets about not getting the role. “I like that I didn’t do it, because when I was younger I could get that white-knuckle grip of holding onto an idea and not wanting to let it go, but the moment I started to let go and seeing that there are no rules, there’s more flexibility and openness and knowing that if you follow something it creates its own path,” she told Vogue Australia.

6. Carrie’s Wig

AnnaSophia Robb has naturally straight hair, so to get Carrie’s iconic curls a special wig was designed to prevent any damage that could have been done with the constant curling. During season one, Robb wore the wig, but during season two, the wig was ditched and it was Robb’s natural hair.
