‘Dorrit Finds Her Little Romeo’

I Didn't Slam Carrie Diaries
Sarah Jessica Parker says her quotes were used out of context.
Dressed in black with heavy eye makeup, Carrie’s (AnnaSophia Robb) little sister Dorrit on The CW’s The Carrie Diaries would like you to believe she’s unflappable.

But, viewers love when the façade cracks, like when she receives tickets for The Nutcracker, or someone actually relates to her and sees beyond the walls she’s built up. So, fans of the show should be thrilled to hear that Dorrit will soon have her own love interest on the show.

“Dorrit finds her little Romeo,” Stefania Owen tells Celebuzz about her character. “So, it’s not only Carrie and Sebastian, but it’s also Dorrit and her love interest. So, I’m excited to see how that plays out because I haven’t seen any of the scenes that we filmed. It’s a surprise for the viewers.”

On Monday’s episode, “The Long and Winding Road Not Taken,” Carrie turns 17. And in Dorrit’s search for the perfect gift, she finds something (well, someone) totally unexpected.

“The boy isn’t going to disappear like the hamster,” Owen says of the romance’s multiple episode story arc, though she wouldn’t name who’s playing Dorrit’s love interest.

Of course, The Carrie Diaries is all about a girl finding herself as much as it’s about finding herself in the right relationship – much like HBO’s Sex and The City. And up until now, the series has been all about establishing whether Sebastian (Austin Butler) is the right fit for Carrie. Owen definitely has her thoughts on that coupling.

“It’s hard because it’s like [Sex and the City’s] Carrie and Big,” the 15-year-old tells us. “You want Carrie and Sebastian to be together, but you know that in the end something will happen that will break Carrie’s heart. So, as much as you want Carrie and Sebastian to be together, you know that something’s going to go wrong along the way. So, it’s really hard.”

“But I have to say, I do love Carrie and Sebastian when they’re together,” she weighs in.

Owen’s short resume includes some pretty big projects, including the critically loved film, The Lovely Bones. And even though she starred alongside Will Arnett and Keri Russell on the short-lived FOX comedy, Running Wilde, that experience doesn’t make the idea of cancelation any easier.

“That part about the job is really hard, especially cause we live in New Zealand,” Owen says. “So, we live quite far away so it’s a big deal to be here and do to this. So, it’s hard to say goodbye when you don’t know for how long. But, I think the energy is really positive, whether it goes or not, all of us are going to see each other again. Everyone is so close, which is really, really great. And we’re just hoping for the best, fingers crossed.”

Owen says that The CW should announce their decision in May. “So all of us are just waiting until then,” she says. “It’s positive, but we don’t know for sure.”

The Carrie Diaries airs Mondays at 8PM on The CW.
