Former Doctor Who star Freema Agyeman has been cast in the upcoming Sex and the City prequel, The Carrie Diaries.
Agyeman, who also appeared in Torchwood and Law and Order: UK, will play Larissa in the new TV show, a character described as a “hip, cutting-edge editor/party girl” who works at Interview Magazine.
Larissa will act as something of a mentor for the young Carrie Bradshaw, who will be played by Anna Sophia Robb in the pilot episode for US network the CW.
The Carrie Diaries is being developed by Gossip Girl producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, and is an adaptation of author Candace Bushnell’s 2010 novel, which pre-dates the events of Sex and the City.
