‘Carrie Diaries’ Creator Talks Sex And The Series

The CW’s The Carrie Diaries thrust its main character (AnnaSophia Robb) into a relationship with Sebastian (Austin Butler) on only the second episode.

‘Carrie Diaries’ Recap: Walt and the City

I’ve watched enough teen TV to know that The Carrie Diaries is up to something. The best adolescent drama comes from a good love triangle. Think Pacey, Dawson and Joey on Dawson’s Creek or Elena, Stefan and Damon on The Vampire Diaries.

The CW’s The Carrie Diaries has never really made it a secret that Walt is gay. But, just because the audience, and now Carrie (AnnaSophia Robb), may be predisposed to thinking Walt is gay does not mean the character himself will immediately undergo the revelation himself.

‘Carrie Diaries’ Star Austin Butler: Don’t Label Sebastian a ‘Bad Boy’

The CW’s The Carrie Diaries has set up a world in which young Carrie Bradshaw (AnnaSophia Robb) will be experiencing a lot of firsts. Of course, that means first love is a big part of all of that story, and that’s where Sebastian Kydd (Austin Butler) comes in.

‘Carrie Diaries’ Recap: The Plot Thickens for Poor Walt

There’s an inherent risk when you create a TV series about teenagers and the teenagers aren’t vampires, superheroes or trying to solve their friend’s murder.
