AnnaSophia Robb on set of The Carrie Diaries.

The highly anticipated Sex and the City prequel, The Carrie Diaries, began filming in NYC yesterday with AnnaSophia Robb assuming the starring role of Carrie Bradshaw. The show follows a teenage Carrie, made famous by Sarah Jessica Parker in the original series, before she crossed paths with three memorable friends and found success in the Big Apple.

SJP is passing the torch to AnnaSophia and sent along an encouraging letter of support. For her part AnnaSophia knows there will be comparisons made between the two Carries, but says, "The show is more for my generation, but it's set in the '80s, so it's fun."
