It’s been more than two decades since Sex and the City introduced audiences to the glamorous, single women of New York City. The HBO series and the movies that followed it broke barriers about sex, relationships, and dating. The show represented four archetypal single thirty-somethings who remain incredibly relevant today — so much so that calling somebody "a Carrie" or "a Samantha" has become commonplace parlance.
So, where are the stars of this pop cultural phenomenon today? Here's what the stars of this Manhattan-based series are up to today, ten years since last reuniting on screen for Sex and the City 2.
Sarah Jessica Parker: Carrie Bradshaw
Since the end of the show, Sarah Jessica Parker continued to star in movies like The Family Stone and the romcom Failure to Launch. Most recently, Sarah returned to television with the HBO show Divorce, and she also runs her own production company called Pretty Matches.
Like her fictional alter-ego Carrie, Sarah is also known for her adventurous fashion sense and, along with being a staple at the Met Gala, she also launched her own shoe collection called SJP.
She’s also one half of one of Hollywood’s most successful and long-lasting marriages: fellow actor Matthew Broderick and Sarah married in 1997, and live in New York’s Greenwich Village with their three children.
Kristin Davis: Charlotte York
After playing Charlotte York on Sex and the City, actress Kristin Davis has been using her time to give back. She’s a UN-appointed Goodwill Ambassador for UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, and works to raise awareness about the needs of refugees around the world.
She also works with the famous Sheldrick Wildlife Trust that rescues elephants and giraffes from poachers. Kristin also still acts and most recently was in a Netflix Christmas movie called Holiday in the Wild, starring across heartthrob Rob Lowe.
Cynthia Nixon: Miranda Hobbs
Cynthia Nixon has also continued to have a rich acting career since the end of Sex and the City. She’s starred in a number of movies including A Quiet Passion, in which she plays poet Emily Dickinson. She also continued to work in television, in roles on The Affair and Broad City.
Most notably however, Cynthia ran for governor of New York in 2008. She ran on a platform of criminal justice reform, but ultimately lost to incumbent Andrew Cuomo. Now, she’s traded in political rallies for the red carpet once again and has made her return to acting.
This year, she is set to appear in two new TV shows: Netflix's Ratched and HBO’s The Gilded Age.
Kim Cattrall: Samantha Jones
After the second Sex and the City movie, Kim Cattrall went on to star in a number of TV shows like Producing Parker, Sensitive Skin, and Tell Me a Story.
This year, she stars in Fox’s Filthy Rich, about a Southern family who makes their money with a Christian television network.
Chris Noth: John James Preston aka Mr. Big
After Sex and the City, Chris took on a recurring role in yet another hit television series, The Good Wife, where he played Peter Florrick, disgraced politician and husband of the show’s titular character, played by Juliana Margulies.
Since he wasn’t a series regular, Chris also had the opportunity to star in other projects like Dr. Who. This year, Noth will appear in the movie New York Christmas Wedding and the TV show Equalizer, opposite Queen Latifah.
David Eigenberg: Steve Brady
Since his time as Steve, David Eigenberg has been steadily working on a number of TV shows. He’s had small roles in popular shows like NCIS and Castle, and in 2012, David became a series regular on the popular Chicago Fire.
He now lives in Chicago with his wife Chysti, their son, Louie Steven, and daughter, Myrna Belle.
Evan Handler: Harry
After playing lovable Harry on Sex and the City, Evan Handler went on to join the cast of the show Californication, in the role of Charlie, the main character's best friend.
John Corbett: Aiden Shaw
Aside from Aiden Shaw, John Corbett might be best known as Ian Miller from the iconic romantic comedy My Big Fat Greek Wedding.
The actor continues to have great taste in roles and was most recently in the adorable Netflix movie To All The Boys I've Loved Before as the main character’s tender dad.
Jason Lewis: Smith Jerrod
After playing Sex and the City’s biggest heartthrob, Jason Lewis has had roles in a number of hit TV shows like Charmed, House, and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.
Willie Garson: Stanford Blatch
Carrie’s ride-or-die gay BFF Stanford always had a special place in our hearts. These days, the actor who played him has moved on to bigger projects, with a staring role in all six seasons of USA’s White Collar. Since then, he’s appeared in multiple episodes of CBS's Hawaii Five-O as Gerard Hirsch.
