#SPOTTED: ELLEN WONG OF “THE CARRIE DIARIES” IN TORONTO
Scarborough’s own Ellen Wong (no relation) recently received a significant profile boost landing a starring role on Sex and the City Prequel The Carrie Diaries as Carrie Bradshaw‘s (AnnaSophia Robb) BFF, Mouse. Prior to that, she had also starred as Knives Chau in Edgar Wright‘s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World in 2010, gaining cult notoriety as the Girl whose heart was broken harshly by Michael Cera‘s Pilgrim.
The adorabl(er) Wong was just in-town earlier this month doing Press for the newly-launched Series which can be seen in Canada on City and The CW in the U.S.. Although she is busy filming The Carrie Diaries in New York City right now where she also is living, she’s back in her Hometown just this weekend and of all places I spotted her on the TTC this afternoon. “You look so familiar”, she tells me after I say drop a quick “hi”. I had her guessing until finally she narrowed it down: “I might’ve seen you in Interviews or something before…”. She just might be right!
Wong, learned grew-up just blocks from me in Scarborough and she used to visit my old area often apparently as she loved visiting the Zoo, which was minutes from my Parent’s Home! Although she isn’t on Twitter just yet, I reminded her that with the exploding popularity of The Carrie Diaries, the Fans may just soon demand it. The Crowd of Girls forming around Wong on the Train who were unable to contain their excitement, for one would love the idea!
The youthful Actress tells me she fell in-love with Sex and the City this past Summer when she caught-up with all six seasons of the iconic HBO Series in preprartion for her Role. Without giving anything away, she hints that there definitely will be more juiciness to come of Mouse‘s budding relationship with Seth (Kyle Harris).
The Carrie Diaries can be seen on City on Monday nights at 10:00 PM EST.
