Casting Kudos: Lindsey Gort Is A Ringer For Young Samantha In 'The Carrie Diaries'

The casting directors for the CW's Sex and the City prequel, The Carrie Diaries, really know how to spot 'em, huh?

It was recently announced that actress Lindsey Gort would be taking on the role of young Samantha Jones, and as on-set photos from the upcoming second season roll in we continue to be in awe of her resemblance to the OG Sam, who was portrayed by Kim Cattrall.

Sex and the City fans know Samantha as Carrie Bradshaw's most outspoken and um, promiscuous, friend. The Carrie Diaries' producers describe her 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."

Cattrall even chimed in and tweeted some advice for newcomer Lindsay (Lindsay politely thanked her):

While we have yet see footage of Lindsey's Samantha, we can say with certainty that she sure looks the part. But we couldn't help but wonder... How will Lindsey Gort do in this iconic role?
