The Carrie Diaries

PHOTOS Austin Butler, Carrie Bradshaw’s love interest in The Carrie Diaries

The New Year brings along with it a slew of new shows and one of the most highly anticipated is the Sex and the City prequel, The Carrie Diaries. The series is based on the book from Candace Bushnell and it’s about the school days life of protagonist Carrie Bradshaw. AnnaSophia Robb landed the lead as a younger Carrie, but the focus of this post is Austin Butler who is set to portray 80’s era teenage Carrie’s main love interest, Sebastian Kydd. From the looks of Mr. Butler, I think youthful Carrie may have had more of a Samantha Jones taste in stud-muffin. Sweet child o’ mine!
