Actress Cynthia Nixon has explained why she nearly turned down the Sex And The City reboot And Just Like That.
In a new interview with News Corp, Nixon revealed that she was very hesitant to reprise her role as Morando Hobbes in the reboot as she was worried the series would still lack diversity much like the original.
“I really didn’t think I was going to do it; I was very reluctant. But the more I talked to Sarah Jessica Parker, [writer-creator]Michael Patrick King and Kristin Davis, about the things that I couldn’t go back without, a real sea change in terms of the lack of diversity in the original series, they were on board,” Nixon said.
“I’m very proud of the original series, despite it being occasionally tone deaf on race and gender. Part of the reason we wanted to do the show [was] to go back and [undo] the things that we really got wrong,” she added.
And Just Like That: Episode 5 is set to be released on 30th December. The full series is available to watch on NOW TV and Sky Comedy.
