The show also has had issues with guest and recurring female characters. However, when Felicia Day’s happily fannish lesbian hacker Charlie Bradbury was introduced last season, everything went right as she helped Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) battle evil Leviathan Dick Roman.

Now, the prequel THE CARRIE DIARIES is landing at The CW this winter based on the Candace Bushnell book and focusing on Carrie Bradshaw’s high school years. AnnaSophia Robb plays the iconographic Carrie, and she was well of the big high heels she had to fill. “When I landed the role, I remember having a conversation with [showrunner] Amy [B. Harris who said] ‘we don’t want you to emulate Sarah Jessica Parker’s performance,” says Robb. “I loved the show SEX IN THE CITY. I …Read On »
