Season two of The Carrie Diaries has finally arrived and we couldn’t be more excited! We chatted with AnnaSophia Robb at the premiere party hosted by Bongo and got the scoop on what’s to come, the perfect on-screen kiss and more. Check out our exclusive interview below and make sure to tune into The CW tonight at 8/7c!
Fans were left on the edge of their seats after the season one finale. So what’s coming up this season for The Carrie Diaries gang? “There will be new loves [and] some firsts. I think you know what I’m talking about,” AnnaSophia joked. Romance isn’t the only addition to the show as viewers will also meet the Samantha character which AnnaSophia revealed makes the season “a bit sexier.”
This year followers will also get a deeper look as the characters are dealing with more “real life decisions” in relationships and with their careers. Spoiler alert: Carrie is put to the test this season and must decide where she morally stands as a journalist!
As the show’s leading lady, AnnaSophia gets to work with almost every character. But which relationship is her favorite? Her friendship with Walt! Not only will the pair be spending a lot of time together this season, but fans will also get a deeper look into Waltz’s new relationship.
“My favorite story line is with Walt’s character and all of his struggles. I think it’s very applicable to young men and women that age trying to figure out their sexuality,” the actress explained. “If your parents aren’t necessarily the people you wanna talk about it with, you want your friends to be there for you.” We can’t wait to see the dynamic duo explore New York City together!
With season two, AnnaSophia says she worked hard to find the right balance between following in Sarah Jessica Parker’s footsteps and adding new depths to the Carrie. “It’s definitely a balance. I try to make the character more my own because I realize we do have a very different audience, but I’m really trying to hold onto some of the specific Carrie traits that she has when she’s older.”
As we know, there was a lot of on-screen kisses in season one. According to AnnaSophia, “There sure are in season two as well!” But what does it take to master the perfect smooch? “You kind of have to know where the camera is. Its’ not as sexy as it looks,” she joked. “It’s kind of like your job to make it look hot, but mainly it’s, ‘Okay, where is the camera?’ It’s sort of choreographed.”
