By

The 19-year-old Colorado native further expressed her hope for The Carrie Diaries to move out from Sex and the City's shadow in a recent chat with TV Guide.

"Don't compare it to the original; just embrace it for what it is," Robb urged Carrie Diaries viewers.

The actress added: "We want audiences to enjoy this and not scrutinise every little detail. Enjoy the ride and the fashion and characters we've created."

Robb went on to reveal that she actually knew very little about Sex and the City prior to landing the lead role in The Carrie Diaries.

"I wasn't super familiar with Sex and the City... because the show ended when I was 12," she said. "Now I watch and love it, [and see that The Carrie Diaries has] similar flavours to the original show, but you're watching her experience all of these things for the first time.

"I love the episode when Carrie goes to Paris and claps because it's everything she ever dreamed of. That's what New York is for this Carrie. She's realising you could go to these fabulous parties and wear these amazing shoes and express yourself and she's finding her voice in high school and in the city."
