Sarah Jessica Parker’s Role Was The Reason These Women Become Friends For Life
Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon, Kim Cattrall, and Sarah Jessica Parker all became friends when they auditioned for Sex and the City back in 1998. The sitcom later became a movie with two parts. Cynthia Nixon also auditioned for the role, which perfectly fit Sarah Jessica Parker only. Cynthia faced many failures before landing in the sitcom with Miranda Hobbes’s role.
Carrie Bradshaw was carried solely by Sarah Jessica Parker. Kristin Davis said Charlotte York’s role was under work. But she understood her. It never mattered to her if the role was not properly formed. Cynthia Nixon auditioned for Carrie Bradshaw, and the director said not so much.
