In “Hush, Hush,” Carrie (Robb) is thrilled when the junior-senior lock-in provides the perfect cover for a night out in Manhattan with Larissa (Freema Agyeman) and her Interview co-workers – until a surprising encounter turns her night upside down.
Maggie (Katie Findlay) and Mouse (Ellen Wong) confront Sebastian (Austin Butler) about his feelings for Carrie and tell him he better make a grand gesture if he stands any chance of winning her back.
Meanwhile, Maggie tries to find the courage to tell Walt (Brendan Dooling) about Simon (Josh Salatin) before Donna LaDonna (Chloe Bridges) does.
“Hush, Hush” airs Monday night, March 4th @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.
The 21-year-old actor plays Sebastian Kydd in this Sex and the City prequel. Sebastian is your typical bad boy whose dreamy good looks and sweet personality make him a weak spot for our main character Carrie (AnnaSophia Robb).
JJJ recently sat down with Austin on set of the show to get the scoop on his cast mates, Carrie and Sebastian’s future, and of course, what we can expect in coming episodes!

The two Carrie Diaries stars opened up about their characters, fashion, and Sex and the City. Check it:
Chloe on Donna LaDonna: “Donna is hot stuff. I mean, she wakes up every morning and teases that hair and puts on her pink eye shadow. So, y’know, she’s an interesting character to play for sure.”
Austin on research for his role: “I look at it knowing that everything we’re doing now is shaping who she eventually becomes, the person we see in Sex and the City. And also the comedy… I love Sex and The City for their comedic timing, and comedy in general. I, as an actor, don’t ever want to fall into being melodramatic, and I feel like it’s a very easy thing to fall into. Because you kind of sit into the emotion rather than going through it and making light of it, which is something we do on the show. We try not to let it get too serious.”
Chloe on the fashion: “I think that we are starting at a place in the show where there’s so much room to grow [in fashion]. All of the influences involved are very much SATC or Gossip Girl. So, yes, those are our influences and we will go in that direction, but we’re starting in a place where Carrie’s a virgin; she’ s not having sex yet and she’s living in Connecticut. So we’ll see her make her way into that life. We’ll be with her to discover it; we won’t meet her when she’s already a part of it. I’d have to say the same with the other characters. We’re all coming into our own.”
Austin on watching Sex and the City: “I hadn’t watched it before I did the pilot. But I was in New York and I said to myself, ‘I should really [watch] this show.’…Now, I’m on season three or four? I thought I’d watch maybe one episode for research. But it’s such a good show. You relate to it even though these are 30-something year old single women living in New York. But I think it’s the idea that they’re looking for love constantly, and in the weirdest places and it’s not quite lining up, and so one relates to that.”
