Young Carrie Bradshaw is about to meet someone very important (though she doesn't know it yet). "The Carrie Diaries" Season 2 just cast Lindsey Gort as a young Samantha Jones -- a very influential role in Ms. Bradshaw's life -- and Zap2it has your first look at the '80s version of the "Sex and the City" icon.

"In another nerve-wracking search to create the amazing characters we all came to know and love on 'Sex and the City,' we went out in search this year for a young Samantha Jones," executive producer Amy B. Harris said. "Lindsey Gort walked into the room and owned the part. Funny and sexy with a whiff of vulnerability and an amazing dash of outrageousness, Lindsey is our exciting choice to play the young Samantha Jones."

Through a surprising connection, Carrie (AnnaSophia Robb) will meet Samantha -- who was played by Kim Cattrall in "SATC" -- a ballsy, beautiful and sexy young woman from the panhandle of Florida who has made her way and a name for herself in the rock 'n' roll scene of '80s NYC.

"The Carrie Diaries" returns for Season two on Friday, Oct. 25, at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
