Cynthia Nixon Has Good Reason for Being ‘Very Reluctant’ to Do a ‘Sex and The City’ Reboot

Cynthia Nixon hesitated to reprise her beloved character, Miranda Hobbs, in Sex and the city restart, And just like that unless some substantial changes are made to fix the series’ out-of-the-ordinary past.

“It was a very difficult decision. I really don’t think I’m going to do it — I’m very reluctant,” Nixon told News Corp in an interview published by Herald Sun. “But the more I talk to Sarah Jessica [Parker], Michael Patrick King [the show’s writer-creator], and Kristin [Davis], about the things I couldn’t go back to without – a real change in terms of the lack of diversity in the original series – they were on board. ”

The Emmy winner added, “I was appreciative by how hard everyone listened and how we worked together to not only redecorate the house but to build a whole new home. – there’s us in it, but there’s also new characters.” She cited the show’s rare choice of having three middle-aged women as the main characters. “The characters are 55 so they’re in menopause. And menopause is the crux of a lot of jokes and certainly has its nasty sides,” Nixon said. “But it was a time when women who had spent decades taking care of others were able to refocus on themselves: who am I? Who do I want to be? ”

The actress added that despite the flaws of the original show, she was still deeply moved by all the people who watched it touched. “I’m very proud of the original series – although it is sometimes racially and gender-impaired – and the role of Miranda has opened me up to so many great roles over the years,” Nixon said. “But the more I got away from Miranda, the better they felt, because people stopped thinking of me as a single character. But Sex and the city gave me a mature career. And I will always be grateful for that. ”

Of course, not everyone is impressed by And just like that attempts to correct past wrongs with what the show portrays as more socially conscious characters and plot. Vanity Fair’s Richard Lawson Written that the new show is “filled with serious problems, sent out scrambling to atone for past representational sins and competing with the perception that life won’t magically happen forever.” He added that the three characters’ attempt to modify the culture seems “confusing and a bit embarrassing”, but he still has “the belief that the show’s eagerness to demonstrate understanding of our culture will eventually reduce to something less confusing and repulsive.”
