From 1998 to 2004, HBO's "Sex and the City" reigned supreme as it celebrated a group of friends — four single professional women played by Cynthia Nixon, Kristin Davis, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall — living and loving in New York City during the early aughts. Cynthia portrayed the ultra-loyal and ultra-intelligent lawyer in the crew, Miranda Hobbes, and in honor of the actress's 55th birthday on April 9, 2021, Wonderwall.com is taking a look at what she and more of the show's stars have been up to since the HBO series ended in 2004. Read on for more "SATC" cast updates…
Cynthia Nixon portrayed Miranda Hobbes, a career-minded lawyer known for her piercing wit, feminist outlook and unmatched sarcasm.
Since her time as everyone's favorite cynic, Cynthia Nixon's career has flourished. She reprised her role in both "Sex and the City" films and appeared in "5 Flights Up, "James White" and "A Quiet Passion." She's also acted in Broadway shows like "The Little Foxes," "The Real Thing" and "Wit." The talented actress has also worked on TV shows like "Hannibal," "Alpha House," "The Big C" and "Law & Order." In 2018, she ran for governor of New York though lost in the primary to incumbent Andrew Cuomo. In 2020, she was back on a buzzy show, starring as Gwendolyn Briggs on Ryan Murphy's psychological thriller series "Ratched." As for what's on the horizon? In addition to reprising her role as Miranda on HBO Max's "SATC" reboot, "And Just Like That…," she'll appear on the historical drama series "The Gilded Age." The breast cancer survivor (she was diagnosed in 2006) has been married to education activist Christine Marinoni since 2012. They have a son, Max, and Cynthia also has two kids from a previous relationship.
Sarah Jessica Parker is synonymous with her character, Carrie Bradshaw. Carrie was the show's protagonist, a witty newspaper columnist and girl-about-town who narrated each episode. She's a true girl's girl.
Sarah Jessica Parker returned for both "Sex and the City" films and she acted in other movies like "Smart People," "Failure to Launch and "All Roads Lead to Rome." She's also taken on the role of entrepreneur: She launched her first perfume in 2005 and in 2014, SJP championed the SJP collection, a line of fashion-forward shoes she founded with George Malkemus III, the president of Manolo Blahnik. From 2016 to 2017, she starred on HBO's "Divorce." In 2021, we'll see her reprise her role as Carrie Bradshaw on HBO Max's "SATC" reboot, "And Just Like That…," in addition to reprising her witchy role as Sarah Sanderson in Disney's "Hocus Pocus 2." She's been married to actor Matthew Broderick, the father of her three kids, since 1997.
The role of Charlotte York was played by Kristin Davis. Charlotte is known as the sophisticated, reserved and moral lady of the bunch who is the most "by the book" of all the women.
Post-"Sex and the City," Kristin Davis continued to act, though she's never nabbed a role as memorable as Charlotte. She returned for both big screen productions of the beloved show and acted in films like "Couples Retreat" and "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island." In 2014, she portrayed Ginny on the short-lived TV series "Bad Teacher" and made her Broadway debut in "Fatal Attraction." In 2021, she'll star in the thriller "Deadly Illusion" and will reprise her role as Charlotte York on "And Just Like That…," the HBO Max reboot of "SATC." She's also become very involved in humanitarian causes and has worked with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees as well as the Humane Society. In 2011, she adopted daughter Gemma, and in 2018, she adopted son Wilson.
Kim Cattrall starred on "Sex and the City" as Samantha Jones, a highly sexualized femme fatale who worked as a publicist in Manhattan.
Kim Cattrall has kept bust acting on stage and screen since the "Sex and the City" finale. Her film credits include Roman Polanski's "The Ghost Writer," the indie film "Meet Monica Velour" and the TV movie "Ruby Robinson." She also has theater credits in shows like "Sweet Bird of Youth" and "Private Lives." In 2016, she appeared on the TV series "Sensitive Skin" and in 2017, Kim appeared as Helen Tyler on "Modus." While there had been talks of a "Sex and the City 3" movie being in the works for quite some time, it was revealed in October 2017 that it wasn't happening because Kim didn't want to do it. She replied to an Instagram comment telling a fan, "I can't. My heart isn't in it anymore," after she was prodded to join in the third installment. In 2020, she starred on the short-lived FOX series "Filthy Rich," which aired for one season. The actress has been married three times and has been in a serious relationship with boyfriend Russell Thomas, whom she met when he was working at the BBC, since 2016.
Chris Noth portrayed mogul Mr. Big on "Sex and the City." Big — whose real name was finally revealed on the last episode (it's John Preston) — is a wealthy Manhattan mover and shaker with a fear of commitment and a devilishly charming aura.
After "Sex and the City" went off the air, Chris Noth returned to "Law & Order" to portray Mike Logan from 2005 to 2008. He'd also appeared as that character from 1990 to 1995. He acted on the big screen in 2008's "Sex and the City" film and its sequel in 2010 as well as in movies like "Lovelace," "After the Ball" and "White Girl." Chris memorably portrayed Peter Florrick on "The Good Wife" from 2009 to 2016 and acted in the TV series "Tyrant" in 2016. In 2017, Chris landed a role in "Manhunt: Unabomber." In addition to appearing in the forthcoming Queen Latifah crime series "The Equalizer," he has two films on the way: "Someday Sometime" and "Brooklyn All American." The actor has been married to actress Tara Wilson since 2012. They share two children, Orion and Keats.
John Corbett played Aidan Shaw, one of Carrie's long-term boyfriends. He's a sweet-tempered furniture designer who ends up proposing to Carrie during season 4, but she eventually breaks his heart.
John Corbett reprised his role as Aidan in the second "Sex and the City" movie and has acted in films like "The Boy Next Door," "My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2" and "My Dead Boyfriend." He's also appeared on TV series including "Parenthood," "Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll" and "Mata Hari." From 2016 to 2017, John portrayed Trayne Crosstown on the TV series "Still the King." In 2018, 2020 and 2021, he portrayed Dr. Covey in Netflix's hit "To All the Boys" films. In 2021, he'll star as Grady Bello on the Katey Sagal series "Rebel." To top it off, he's also a musician! His second country album, "Leaving Nothin' Behind," was released in 2013. John has been in a relationship with actress Bo Derek since 2002.
Miranda's boyfriend-turned-husband Steve Brady was portrayed by David Eigenberg. Steve is a bartender who starts dating Miranda in the second season. They continue an on-again, off-again relationship and eventually have a kid together and marry in season six.
Though David Eigenberg is still best known as Steve from "Sex and the City," he still has a steady acting career. He's guest starred on TV shows like "Ghost Whisperer," "ER" and "NCIS" and has been starring on "Chicago Fire" as Christopher Herrmann since 2012. In 2020, he appeared in the film "Killing Eleanor." David also reprised his role in the two "Sex and the City" films. He and wife Chrysti have a son, Louie, and a daughter, Myrna.
Willie Garson portrayed Stanford Blatch, Carrie's gay bestie and go-to confidante who appeared on all six seasons of the show.
Willie Garson has continued to nab tons of acting roles since his time as Stanford Blatch. From 2009 to 2014, he portrayed Mozzie on the TV series "White Collar." His film credits include "Trust Fund," The Polka King" and "Feed," among others. From 2015 to 2020, Willie portrayed Gerard Hirsch on "Hawaii Five-0." He, too, appeared in both "SATC" films. Up next, he'll appear on the television series "Duke of the Valley" and the film "Before I Go." Because he's such a great character actor, fans of the show might be surprised to know that he's straight. He has an adopted son, Nathen, but is not married.
Evan Handler portrayed Charlotte's lawyer love interest Harry Goldenblatt. Harry started dating Charlotte in season 5 and they eventually married and adopted a daughter from China.
After making quite the impression as Harry, Evan Handler continued on with a successful acting career.
