When Sex and the City’s reboot, And Just Like That…, aired on HBO Max last December, fans of the iconic show were quick to watch the fresh batch of ten episodes that promised to give us answers and show us what happened to our favorite quartet. Well, more like the trio — given that Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha, refused to return for the revival. It wasn’t long before criticism came along, and it was Cynthia Nixon’s character, Miranda, that took the greatest hit.
Miranda’s Storyline Shocked Some Fans
For a long time, the outspoken, cynical, and career-driven Miranda Hobbes gave hopes to women around the world that balancing a career and a family is possible, albeit not in the most glamorous of ways. The revival, however, showed a slightly more different Miranda, one that has a new love interest — a nonbinary podcast host and comedian Che Diaz (played by Sara Ramirez).
When asked about her thoughts on the criticism her character received, Cynthia Nixon (who is part of the queer community herself) was pretty straightforward — “I think that’s a bizarre reaction.”
Cynthia Nixon Defends Miranda’s Choices
Although the actress has previously stated that she was hesitant about joining the cast of And Just Like That… at first, once she committed, she was fully on board with everything that the creators of the show had in store for her character. Of course, she wholeheartedly supported this storyline that shows Miranda’s romantic struggles between Steve and Che. She even compared it to Carrie’s love triangle with Mr. Big and Aidan.
Originally, Che wasn’t part of the picture, but Nixon and director Michael Patrick King decided to make this bold choice — by showing Miranda rediscovering herself.
Miranda is brave and opinionated, says Nixon, and it made sense to show women and their struggles in an authentic and meaningful way. No one wants to watch propaganda where female characters are only one-sided. Cynthia Nixon certainly doesn’t want to watch that!
