Cynthia Nixon Apparently Doesn't Know About 'The Carrie Diaries'


Cynthia Nixon isn't aware of the "Sex and the City" prequel series "The Carrie Diaries."

AnnaSophia Robb, the star of The CW prequel about a young Carrie Bradshaw, said she ran into Nixon, Miranda Hobbs to "SATC" fans, and struck up a conversation. "I was at the counter, and I went, 'Oh, hi, I'm on the "Carrie Diaries" show. I'm a big fan. It was just kind of one of those New York run-ins," Robb told Vanity Fair.

Nixon hadn't seen the show, according to Robb. "No. She had no idea," Robb said. "Which is the best part."

However, Robb has heard from "Sex" star Sarah Jessica Parker. SJP reached out to Robb when she got the part. Similarly, Kim Cattrall reached out to Lindsey Gort when the young actress got the part of Samantha Jones on Season 2 of "The Carrie Diaries."
