Celebuzz spent a day on the set of The CW’s The Carrie Diaries in Brooklyn, New York. We got to meet the cast who all raved about each other and told us of having huge cast dinners at Stefania Owen’s (who plays Dorrit) apartment.
Of course, we even managed to pry a few behind-the-scenes details and hints on what ‘s to come this season — despite having a very protective publicist sitting with us. Here’s nine things we learned while visiting The Carrie Diaries set.
1. Sounds like things are going to get icky between Carrie (AnnaSophia Robb) and Sebastian (Austin Butler)…“The relationship is at that point where it can get so great,” Butler said. “But then there’s so much vulnerability that comes with that, so he puts up protection and it causes the relationship to not go so well. That goes back and forth but that doesn’t change how much they feel for each other.”
2. Does that mean Sebastian’s going to hook up with Donna? “There’s positive sides to both girls for Sebastian,” said Butler. “Donna is very carefree, not in his business, so it’s a very easy way to get his mind off of any troubles he has, just have fun without any strings attached. But with Carrie, there is a possibility of a much deeper relationship that’s more meaningful so I guess from my point of view Carrie is the better choice but it has a lot more possibility for pain.”
3. Is lil’ sis Dorrit going to get a boyfriend? “Yes!” enthused Owen. “There is something for Dorrit, something to look forward to in the later episodes. You have to stay tuned!”
4. The photo of Carrie and Dorrit on Carrie’s bedside table is photoshopped right? Actually no! “I’ve known AnnaSophia since I was seven,” explained Owen. “My older sister Carly was in Bridge to Terabithia with AnnaSophia. It was filmed in New Zealand [where Owen lives]. We gave the producers pictures of us when we were little and they used them for the set!”
5. Did Brendan Dooling ( who plays Walt) try out for any other part?Yes! He auditioned to play Sebastian Kydd. “I don’t have the hair for Sebastian,” Dooling joked. “That’s what I keep telling people. Austin’s got the bad boy hair. He really knows how to make that James Dean coif work. I’m happy that I’m playing Walt.”
6. Are Donna LaDonna [Chloe Bridges] and Carrie going to remain steadfast enemies? “It starts off as enemies, me giving her trouble but I think it develops into frenemies,” ” Bridges explained. “I’ll just say that there are sides to Donna that come out later that aren’t as evil as she originally seems. Their relationship is certainly a relationship that changes.”
7. Does Bridges have an inspiration when playing mean girl Donna LaDonna? “Regina George obviously,” she exclaimed. “When I play a mean character, people ask me if I draw inspiration from an actual bully in my life and I tell them that probably all of my influences were TV and movie characters. Whether I mean to or not, there’s probably a little Blair Waldorf and Regina George in my performance.”
8. What’s the deal with Maggie and Walt. Does she love him? “I have always been of the opinion that they really do adore each other,” said Katie Findlay, who plays Maggie. “I think that both of them don’t quite know what they want out of love and intimacy and unfortunately they are stuck in each other’s crossfire.”
9. How’s that affair going to end up for Maggie? Without revealing any details, Findlay did say succinctly, “Everything goes belly up.”
The Carrie Diaries airs Mondays at 8PM on The CW.

Get ready for a whole lot more Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) on The CW’s Arrow! Can we get an amen?
The fan favorite is about to be brought into Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) inner circle on Wednesday’s episode, “The Odyssey,” but she will also be upped to series regular for Season 2, ensuring her involvement with Starling City’s favorite vigilante is not going to end in fatal danger.
“My favorite part is that the relationships start to change,” Rickards told Celebuzz. “With Oliver, she’s still a super nervous human being, and that doesn’t change, God bless her; she’s awesome. That doesn’t change, but she starts to trust Oliver, and I think it becomes very sweet,” Rickards said.
“Oliver never really lets his guard down for anyone, but having her there creates a different dynamic – even just having a female there in the lair and in that relationship. It loosens some things; it becomes more comfortable; and we’ll see that relationship evolve definitely into the first season.”
Oliver turns to Felicity for help getting back to his lair after getting shot in a tense stand-off at the top of “The Odyssey” episode. But the timing couldn’t be more perfect, because Rickards feels Felicity was onto Oliver anyway. She may not have been given opportunity to prove she knew what was going on before he admits who he is to her, but it all clicks into place immediately, and it causes Felicity to spring into action.
“I think the energy drink in the syringe was quite the [last straw] for her… She had her hunches, I’ll say that. She definitely knew something was up with him. He’s not exactly the most comfortable human being for her to be around, and I think her first instinct was ‘there’s definitely something going on,’” Rickards said.
“The way she finds out with him in the back of her car [is] extremely terrifying, but when he takes off the hood, it clarifies everything. She’s very systematic about the way she thinks about things. When I was doing my research for that scene… it was just like all the lights in her mind went green. She was like, ‘That makes sense!'”
Rickards shared that she believes Felicity’s own stance on the vigilante’s actions and a sense of justice in general changed the minute she learned who was under the hood “because she knows Oliver,” but she noted that it will change again as the next batch of episodes unfold and she gets to know Oliver even better.
“He’s no longer just the fa ade of a millionaire man; he’s a real human being trying to help other people and have gotten himself into this lifestyle, if you will, and now there’s no barrier between them there. Her view on justice does change as well, because of Oliver, but she really does want to keep her morals strong,” Rickards said.
“There is an art thief that steals a precious jewel, and [Felicity] tries to get Oliver to take him – to grab somebody who isn’t actually on the list. It’s something that Felicity has her paws in and says ‘This isn’t right. You can’t just stick to people on the list; there’s other people out there who are bad, too!'”
As Felicity and Oliver and Diggle (David Ramsey) get closer and work together more, the dynamics between the characters will shift and evolve accordingly. One thing Rickards shared she would love to get to do is actually train with the guys (“She needs some physical fitness in her life, too; she can’t just be stuck behind a computer her whole life!”), and come Season 2, she said that would actually become a reality. Whether or not Oliver and Felicity’s relationship would become anything more than platonic, though, was something still to be determined.
“For me, when we’re working in the foundry and on different scenes with Oliver, it seems more friendship-based, and it’s always more ‘Trust me, trust me.’ There’s some sort of family camaraderie, and there’s also a spark. They do have chemistry. Whether it’s romantic chemistry or friendship chemistry, that’s up for debate,” Rickards said.
Arrow airs on Wednesdays at 8PM on The CW.
How do you feel about Felicity being brought into the fold more on Arrow, and are you rooting for her and Oliver to hook up romantically, too? Let us know in the comments below!
