The actress says she'd be 'thrilled' to make another film and reveals what she misses most about playing Miranda Hobbes
It’s been four years since Cynthia Nixon last stepped into Miranda Hobbes’ stylish shoes. But she’d be more than happy to do it again.
The actress, 47, revealed to Marie Claire that, yes, she has heard the rumours about a potential third Sex And The City film (who hasn’t?), and no, she wouldn’t turn down the chance to revisit the franchise.
‘If Michael Patrick King thinks that he has another script to write and Sarah Jessica is signing up for it, well of course I would be thrilled,’ she said. ‘But it’s got to come from them. If they’re on board, and they’re moving forward, then I’d be right there with them.’
Okay, so hypothetically she’s on board. But is it actually going to happen?
‘I’ve heard some things,’ she said. ‘But no-one has contacted me in an official capacity.’
Cynthia added that if there is a third film, she’s not too concerned about where Miranda’s storyline might go. ‘I don’t worry about that. Luckily, that’s not my job.’
Of course, part of the reason that Cynthia is open to a third film is because she had such a wonderful experience making the first two, as well as the TV series.
When asked about her favourite memory, she had trouble narrowing it down. ‘There are so, so many,’ she said. But she finally pinned it down to the season 5 finale, when the gang attends the gorgeous Hampton’s wedding of a friend they had previously assumed was gay.
‘It was just a magical night – and it was the end of the season,’ she said. ‘We knew we were coming back, but it had been a beautiful season. And the setting was just so idyllic.’
But it’s not just the lovely locations that makes Cynthia feel nostalgic for SATC‘s heyday.
‘I miss the other women. I miss being in that foursome. I miss the whole thing,’ she said. ‘I also miss having such talented people making sure I’m looking so amazing every day and wearing the clothes that [costume designer] Pat Fields has picked out for me.’
Yep, we’d probably miss that, too.
