We admit it — we’re still not over the fact that The Carrie Diaries was cancelled! Fortunately for us, we recently got to chat with AnnaSophia Robb about the show, her upcoming projects and her involvement with Tom’s of Maine’s 50 States for Good project, which kiiiiinda helped our hearts.
Don’t worry, y’all — we’re sharing the love, obviously! Click through the gallery below to check out our full interview with AnnaSophia!
We still miss The Carrie Diaries. Do you ever still think you're still filming since you're so used to the routine?
"I never wake up and think I still have to film, but I was so busy [during filming]! I literally lived on set for two years. And so it’s taken a really long time to get out of the routine of feeling like I never have any free time! I’m used to being super busy. Now I have to fill my time with other things."Photo: Instagram
Do you still keep in touch with the cast?
"Yeah, I do! I went and visited Stefania [Owen] who played Dorrit in New Zealand and spent time with her family for two weeks. Every time I go to LA I see Austin [Butler] and Chloe [Bridges]. We’ve become a family."Photo: Instagram
Did you get to keep anything from set?
"I wasn’t allowed to keep anything! I would’ve loved to have some of the clothes and shoes! I also wanted all the furniture in the interview set. It was so cool! I was like, ‘please can I have this?!’"Photo: Instagram
How did you get involved with 50 States for Good in the first place?
"They reached out to me and I was a fan to begin with. Then I realized they gave over a half a million dollars to grassroots organizations in the US, but not only do they give money but they let the people choose the organizations that are near and dear to their hearts. I got really excited about it and I wanted to be a part of it."Photo: Instagram
Is there a certain nonprofit organization you personally support?
"There are several nonprofits that I support! I can’t vote for them because I am one of the judges, but I personally support There With Care, PeaceJams, Make A Wish Foundation and tons more. There are a bunch of organizations I love to work with because there are so many different causes and I feel like there’s little things I can do to help."Photo: Instagram
Was there a particular celebrity who inspired you to start getting involved?
"I think there are a lot of different actors and actresses who are passionate about their own causes. For me, I did a film when I was 9 or 10 with Mia Farrow, and she was an ambassador for Darfur. And I just remember her doing a hunger strike! She’s super intense and committed to her cause. That inspired me to get involved, because she was so passionate."Photo: The WB
Can we talk about your incredible Jack of the Red Hearts transformation?! What was it like seeing yourself like that?
"Yeah, I really surprised myself when I went to the bathroom and I saw myself! I loved it! It was a lot more work than I’m used to, though! I get up in the morning, and for the most part don’t really wear makeup! I was like, ‘maybe I’ll get a nose ring!’Photo: Instagram
And what about Conspiracy on Jekyll Island? How was it filming that?
"I had a lot of fun doing that with Minnie Driver and Frank Grillo! We had a really great cast. It’s a thriller and I’ve never done anything like it! I don’t really even know how to describe it. It’s an economics thriller. I really liked the director. My character has cancer, and it’s not that she just has cancer, but she gets to experience her first love and deals with abandonment and has this relationship with her mother that’s difficult because of the circumstances."Photo: Instagram
Did you get a chance to work with Dianna Agron much?
"I actually just missed her! The day she flew in I flew out. A lot of times in films you never even get to meet the whole cast until the movie is out!"Photo: Instagram
We know it's still early, but do you have any plans on what you're going to be for Halloween?
"I was thinking I’ll be Princess Leia and my boyfriend will be Han Solo and my dog Ferguson will be Chewbacca!"Photo: Instagram
