Premium- Sex and the City -'Carrie Diaries' Ellen Wong Reveals The Chance Of An 'And Just Like That' Cameo
Ellen Wong, who has casually been in some of the most iconic TV shows and films from the past decade, reunites with former Scott Pilgrim co-star Aubrey Plaza for her new film, Best Sellers, that follows an aging author (played by screen gem Sir Michael Caine) who befriends two millennial women to kickstart his career into the 21st century. It's about bibliophiles, friendship, and oh, Scott Speedman is also in it, so.
You probably remember Wong from her role as Knives Chau in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, but you definitely remember her from her role as Jill "The Mouse" Chen in The Carrie Diaries. In that Sex and the City prequel, Wong portrayed Carrie Bradshaw's best friend, a lovable over-achiever dedicated to getting into Harvard.
With Wong's new film Best Sellers in theaters now, could we expect to see her again when the Sex and the City reboot, And Just Like That, hits HBO Max later this year? It's plausible that some of Carrie's boyfriends depicted in The Carrie Diaries could make an appearance in the reboot...
Below, Wong re-lives her best roles with The Dipp, reveals what it was like filming Best Sellers with her amazing co-stars, and explains why she felt immense pressure filming The Carrie Diaries.
