This article will focus on differences between Carrie Bradshaw created by Candace Bushnell in The Carrie Diaries and Carrie Bradshaw created by the writers from Sex and the City the TV show.
Carrie from The Carrie Diaries is still virgin in her high school senior year. Even though she dates Sebastian Kydd for months, she doesn’t have sex with him, as she is reluctant to go so far in her relationship and start having sex, as opposed to her friends who have already done so. Although she is madly in love with Sebastian Kydd, she is not sure she should have sex with him. So when she goes to New York after graduating from high school, she is still virgin. In Sex and the City the show however, Carrie admits to Charlotte during season 3 that she had sex for the first time when she was in the 11th grade.
Another difference between Carrie Bradshaw from The Carrie Diaries and Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City the TV show is related to her family. In the book she lives with her father and the two sisters, and her mother is deceased. In the TV show, during season 4, she says that her father left her and her mother when she was 5 years old; also, no siblings are ever mentioned in the show.
