Meanwhile, leaked scripts of the upcoming series revealed that Carrie (played by Sarah Jessica Parker) wasn’t so sure about her role in her marriage to Big (portrayed by Chris Noth.) 

Carrie, who’s now in her 50’s and hosts a podcast, seems to say she isn’t in a good place: ‘I was taping the podcast, I was washing my hair. Yes, I wasn’t eating or sleeping, but at least I felt good about my marriage. Now I’m just one of the wives he was taking care of?’ 

Carrie and Big were married at the New York Public Library after plans failed for an elaborate luxury wedding in the first Sex and the City movie.

Noth admitted he was ‘hesitant’ to reprise his Mr. Big role for the revival and felt as though he gave the character his all, but was swayed to come back after a little pep talk from producers. 

‘It was a little bit of a sort of creative negotiation because I didn’t really feel I had anything to offer in that role again,’ he told Yahoo! Finance Live. ‘It kind of felt like I had done it. 

‘But [executive producer] Michael Patrick King is just an incredible writer and has incredible creative ideas. And once we got together and talked about the potential of what we could do with the character, I was all in.’ 

Chris played the commitment-phobe financial adviser while SJP portrayed the sex columnist in the series which first debuted in 1998. 

A trio of new stars were also recently confirmed for the reboot, including Nicole Ari Parker, Karen Pittman and Sarita Choudhury  

SATC has long-sparked criticism due to the lack of diversity in its largely-white cast as well as shocking storylines, including Kim Cattrall’s character Samantha — who will not be returning for the reboot — dating a black man and fighting with his sister over her race.
