Our CW star AnnaSophia Robb is heading to the theater this Friday, July 5th, with the new film The Way, Way Back.
The Way, Way Back is the story of a teenage boy who has a hard time fitting in. He is spending his summer vacation with his mother, his mother’s overbearing boyfriend (Steve Carell) and the boyfriends’ daughter. He comes into his own thanks to an unexpected friendship he strikes up with a water park manager. AnnaSophia Robb plays Susanna, the curious next door neighbor who captures the main character’s heart during his summer vacation. Throughout the film you discover that her character has problems of her own that she needs help with.
Robb joined Steve Carell in the New York City for the premiere of The Way, Way Back on June 26th.
On June 28th, Robb attended the Meet The Filmmakers in New York City, where she took a Q&A for the film. Niki Cruz from The Inquisitr sat down with AnnaSophia Robb to discuss her role on the CW series The Carrie Diaries and her role in the new film.
When asked about the difference between the characters of Susanna and Carrie, Robb said: “It was a very different character. I had done the pilot before and then after I shot the film. I’m an actor so I would hope I would be able to play different characters, but I think she’s very different than Carrie, in her mannerisms, from the way she talks and dresses.”
Cruz asked Robb about her goals after the film. Robb said: “I just want to continue to do projects that I really care about. Also projects that are about the characters, the story, and the people involved. I’m doing The Carrie Diaries and I’m having a really awesome time doing that. We have a great cast and an awesome crew. I’m excited to do that and maybe some more films. I’m excited to go to school eventually. I don’t know when that will happen. I’m just trying to enjoy the moment.”
AnnaSophia Robb is a great actress and a lovely person. We are really happy she is part of our CW family and hope she stays for a long time!
