Meet little Samantha Jones! The CW has released the first image of Lindsey Gort as the iconic TV character on "The Carrie Diaries."

"In another nerve-wracking search to create the amazing characters we all came to know and love on 'Sex and the City,' we went out in search this year for a young Samantha Jones," Amy B. Harris, "Carrie Diaries" executive producer, said in a statement. "Lindsey Gort walked into the room and owned the part. Funny and sexy with a whiff of vulnerability and an amazing dash of outrageousness, Lindsey is our exciting choice to play the young Samantha Jones.”
