It’s official. Sarah Jessica Parker is no longer the only Carrie Bradshaw to hit TV. AnnaSophia Robb, best known for her role in Soul Surfer, has been cast to play the younger Sex and the City character in The CW TV series titled The Carrie Diaries, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Before landing this coveted role, AnnaSophia also starred as Violet in the 2005 flick Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

The Carrie Diaries begins during Carrie’s senior year of high school as the character starts to ask her first questions about love, sex, friendship and family while in Manhattan. The show will have large shoes to fill but breathe easy because THR reports that SATC scribe/co-producer Amy B. Harris will adapt the book and act as a show runner.

The highly anticipated prequel will also be executive produced by Gossip Girl and Hart of Dixie duo Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage among others.
