AnnaSophia Robb Hints at a New Love Interest on 'The Carrie Diaries'
In The Way, Way Back AnnaSophia plays Susanna, the girl-next-door and potential love interest of the main character, Duncan. In theaters on Friday, this contemporary coming-of-age story centers around 14-year-old Duncan's summer vacation with his mother (Toni Collette), her overbearing boyfriend (Steve Carell) and an unexpected friend, Owen (Sam Rockwell), manager of the Water Wizz water park.
AnnaSophia explained that her character is more than just the typical, sweet girl-next-door. "I definitely say that Susanna has her guard up. She is a little bit wary of newcomers and adults, but she is very curious about Duncan and how he operates," she said. Much of the film takes place at Water Wizz water park and highlights the tough side of working at such a place. We had to ask AnnaSophia, if she had to work at a water park what job would she want? She joked, "I would want to be at the ice cream stand for sure."
This role is quite a departure from the confident Carrie Bradshaw. Naturally, AnnaSophia filled us in on the upcoming second season of The Carrie Dairies, which is moving to Friday nights on the CW. She said, "Started filming season 2. We're introducing Samantha Jones." Now we know that there has been no official word on which actress will be cast to play the young Samantha Jones, but we do know from the book series that Samantha is the cousin of bad girl Donna LaDonna.
AnnaSophia however, did hint at some big news. She insinuated that there might be a new love interest for Carrie. She gave us a big wink while teasing, "There may or may not be a new love interest, but Sebastian (Austin Butler) will still be there of course and that is all I can say." Oh, such a bummer we have to wait until October to get the details.
