Los Angeles: Sarah Jessica Parker has expressed a desire to play Carrie Bradshaw in a `Sex and the City` prequel featuring the journalist`s teenage years.

The 45-year-old actress insists advances in video technology would make it possible to play the journalist as a teenager, as depicted in creator Candace Bushnell`s latest book `The Carrie Diaries`, E! Online reported.

"Who do I want to play teenage Carrie? I don`t know. Maybe they should use old footage of me. And in this new age of `Avatar`, what about a new 17-year-old SJP?," Parker said.

During the 80s, the 45-year-old beauty acted as Patty Greene in American TV series `Square Pegs` and insists the character was a good representative of the early Carrie.

"That might have been Carrie in high school," Parker said.

The actress, who has two sons with husband Matthew Broderick recently admitted she plans to take her eldest child to see `Sex and the City 2`, but will take him out of the cinema during the raunchier moments.

"If I can manage to take him out for popcorn for two certain moments, I think he`s ready for it. He has too many questions, and he`s too clever for us to keep it from him. I wouldn`t say this movie is for seven-year-olds, but we`ll find a way of figuring it out," she said.
