From left to right: Katie Findlay poses here as Maggie. She plays a major role on The Carrie Diaries. Brendan Dooling portrays Walt on the new CW drama.

Austin Butler takes on the role of Sebastian in The Carrie Diaries. He’s sort of like Mr. Big before Mr. Big. The CW viewers will soon get to know Freema Agyeman well. She plays Larissa on The Carrie Diaries.
