Understandably, the role of a high school-aged Carrie Bradshaw is highly coveted among legions of young actresses, but the character that led Sarah Jessica Parker to enduring fame leaves behind some seriously big shoes (Manolos, naturally) for a starlet to fill. “The Carrie Diaries,” Candace Bushnell’s prequel novel to the much-loved series, is coming to life on the small screen, and AnnaSophia Robb has snagged the eponymous role. A number of others were rumored to be in talks for the part, including Blake Lively and Elizabeth Olsen, but the 18-year-old actress best recognized for 2007′s heartbreaking “Bridge to Terabithia,” emerged victorious. The series will air on the CW, the network responsible for such successful young adult shows as “Gossip Girl” and “One Tree Hill,” but I have my reservations. I think AnnaSophia is adorable, and perfectly well-suited to the part, but the question stands — will Carrie Bradshaw, completely out of context, even hold a candle to the unapologetically fabulous thirty-something Carrie Bradshaw we all know and love?
