Sex and the City loyalists might have a reason to rejoice as Kristin Davis, who plays the dainty and affectionate Charlotte, revealed that for her, the squad’s story isn’t over yet. In an interview with People, the 51-year-old said that at first, they never thought that Sex and the City would become a hit.
“The whole entire ride of Sex and the City has been one surprise after another surprise. We never thought we would really be a hit. We didn’t think we’d win an Emmy, we didn’t think we’d get to make one film, much less another film.”
Twelve years after the television series ended, Kristin is still not ready to finish the tale of the four girls. She is ready to reprise her role if the producers give the green light to a Sex and the City reunion. “I do feel inside like we’re not finished. I do feel like there’s another story. I would be up for anything Sarah Jessica Parker and Michael Patrick King think is the right thing,” she said.
She is not the only one who gave fans a little ray of hope. Last month, when Wendy Williams took to Twitter to beg for another Sex and the City movie, Kim Cattrall responded. Her tweet read, “Can’t WAIT 2 get back 2 the serious business of making u all laugh! Fingers x’d.”
Kim’s response delighted fans who thought that HBO’s planning a spinoff. However, Gossip Cop then debunked the report that Kim would star in a new Sex and the City project. It seems that like Kristin, Kim truly misses her character.
On Instagram, she recently shared her first Boomerang where she was seen flaunting a leopard print top paired with dangling earrings. Her caption read, “Channeling Ms. Samantha Jones once again.” Her makeup artist Nick Barose also uploaded a selfie revealing that they’re working on a “secret project.”
Sarah Jessica also appears to fancy the idea of a Sex and the City reunion although not a lot of fans know that she nearly bailed on playing Carrie. In a previous appearance on Jimmy Kimmel’s show to promote her new HBO show Divorce, Sarah Jessica admitted to People that she almost did not commit to HBO’s offer after the pilot episode.
“I thought it was an interesting role and I loved the script then I completely forgot about it cause I went on to do a play or whatever. and I ran into someone on the street and they said ‘hey I saw your show’ and I said ‘what show?’ and they said ‘you did a show called Sex and the City‘ and I was like ‘oh right.'”
When Sex and the City’s first episode turned out to be a hit, HBO ordered a full season. It was her “wiser” friends who convinced her that it would be foolish to pass on the opportunity of giving life to such an iconic role.
Should there be a Sex and the City reunion, the only one who might need persuading is Cynthia Nixon. Cynthia, who played the role of Miranda, told The Edit via Daily Mail that Sex and the City made her feel pressured to stay “thin and look great all the time.”
She compared the show with Lena Dunham’s Girls in which women, she believed, are portrayed realistically.
“I think Girls is really important. When sex was bad on Sex and the City, it was funny. And the worse it was, the funnier it was. But when sex is bad on Girls, it can be really hard to watch, and it’s sometimes abusive, and it’s important to show that. Plus, in SATC we had to be thin and look great all the time; in Girls, they have permission to be more real and less airbrushed.”
What do you think of a Sex and the City reunion? Do you agree with Cynthia’s views that the two shows depicted women differently?
