Carrie Bradshaw may have had two great loves as an adult, but her teenage years are looking to be the place whereÂ she tested the waters.
According to Deadline, newcomer Richard Kohnke hasÂ signed on to recur on The Carrie Diaries as a potential love interest for Carrie. He’ll be playingÂ George Silver, an entitledÂ Upper East Sider taking a gap year between prepÂ school and college; there’s been no word as to how George will run across Carrie, but with her career in the New York fashion industry only justÂ beginning, it’s likely thatÂ she meets him at an event.
Carrie has lived a fairlyÂ sheltered life thus far and being aroundÂ someone from a privileged background might be intimidating, though being thrown into the adult deep end could force her to adapt quickly. IfÂ she does manage to do that, the guys from Connecticut may lose the luster they once had andÂ she couldÂ set herÂ sights on making her temporary gig in the city more permanent.
KohnkeÂ has appeared on an episode of recently canceled Common Law, in addition to minor roles in Pitch Perfect, Mighty Fine, and From the Rough. He’ll be joined by fellow recurring players/guestÂ starsÂ Scott Cohen and Kyle Harris, who will be playing his father and Carrie’s friend Mouse’s boyfriend, respectively.
The Carrie DiariesÂ starsÂ AnnaSophia Robb as Carrie, Austin Butler as Carrie’s (other) love interestÂ Sebastian, Chloe Bridges as aspiring model Donna LaDonna, Ellen Wong as Carrie’s best friend Jill (aka Mouse), and Freema Agyeman as Carrie’s mentor Larissa.
The Carrie Diaries premieres Monday, January 14th at 8:00 on The CW. You can check out a preview for theÂ series, based on the book of theÂ same name by Candace Bushnell,Â here.
