Let's go back to the very first episode of the 1998 television series Sex and the City for a moment: When "Carrie" (Sarah Jessica Parker) is accidentally bumped by a stranger in the streets of New York, an attractive man helps her pick up the contents of her purse. But who would have thought that one day he would actually be her husband? That handsome man's name in the show is "Mr. Big" and he was portrayed by the fabulous Chris Noth from 1998 to 2004, in a total of 41 episodes.
Chris Noth was already quite famous before appearing in Sex and the City due to his work in Law & Order where he played the role of "Mike Logan" in more than 100 episodes from 1990 to 1995. But what did actually happen after Sex and the City concluded 15 years ago? Apart from reprising his role in the sequel films Sex and the City and Sex and the City 2 in 2008 and 2010, respectively, the Wisconsin native has been doing a lot in the past years.
