The actress who played Carrie in HBOs classic serial is back after a 12 -year gap
During the publicity for her new TV series, Divorce , which follows a middle-aged duet catch at the fierce fag-end of their once bright-burning wedding, Sarah Jessica Parker took the time to construct something clearly articulated to the love of her previous HBO show, the era-defining Sex and the City . This is not Carrie in the suburbium, Carrie the passenger, she told the New York Times . And I kind of wishes to get ahead of that, so that there is not this giant fling of disappointment when people find the show is not that same buoyant kind of thing.
She was right in that Frances, the dissatisfied and often dislikable heroine of Divorce , is nothing like the perennially rosy Carrie Bradshaw who tripped blithely through Manhattans gilded playground for six seasons and two movies, eternally remain convinced that every day would bring some fresh nostalgic astound. And hitherto its hard not to ensure Divorce , which was created by Sharon Horgan and will begin with Sky Atlantic on 11 October, as the earlier pictures bitter flip side, a macrocosm in which Carrie and Big( or, more realistically, Carrie and Aidan) buy a McMansion in Westchester, have two minors, rack up debt and slowly learn their love droop into contempt.
While television audiences have fused Parker and Carrie so successfully that no chart of the 51 -year-old actress is complete without an inventory of her organizations and shoes, she herself has always been clear on the difference. Bradshaws life is nothing good-for-nothing like quarry, she told Vogue in 2011. I enjoyed playing her and it changed my life in wonderful styles, but Im not a crazy shoe maiden. I dont think about mode the working day long.
Maybe not, but there were still meters when her association with her most famous role threatened to overwhelm her profession. When Fornication and the City ended in 2004, she returned to movies, prevailing a Golden Globe for her execution in The Family Stone and making well-reviewed moves in a mixture of slapsticks and indie price. To sees, however, she remained indelibly Carrie, a detail she subsequently acknowledged by will be willing to wizard in two Fornication and the City movies( and “shes never” rebuffed the idea of a third ).
