Samantha is one of Carrie Bradshaw's eventual three best friends in the HBO series where Kim Cattrall played her, earning five Emmy nominations.
In the CW's 1980s-set world of THE CARRIE DIARIES, which launches Season 2 on October 25, Carrie meets one of the most important people in her life through a surprise connection. Samantha is a ballsy, beautiful and sexy young woman from the panhandle of Florida who has made her way — and already a name for herself — in the rock 'n' roll scene of 1980s New York.
