Sex and the City "Harry Goldenblatt", played by actor Evan Handler, first joins the cast of the hit HBO series in season five. Hired as "Charlotte York's" (Kristin Davis') divorce attorney as she splits from her first husband "Trey MacDougal" (Kyle MacLachlan), the pair quickly develop feelings for each other! 

The couple does need to overcome a few obstacles first before the relationship works, such as "Charlotte's" initial aversion to "Harry's" height, baldness, and hairy body! However, "Charlotte" proves her true love to "Harry" when she converts to Judaism so he can honor his promise to his deceased mother!

Sex and the City "Harry" may not be what "Charlotte" imagined in her future husband, but she quickly learns that you can't judge a book by its cover! Underneath his hairy exterior, "Charlotte" learned that despite being a divorce attorney, the man had a heart of gold and was just as a believer in true love as she was. 

A dedicated husband and father, "Harry" turns out to be the perfect husband for "Charlotte"! Just like his on-screen character, Evan Handler also has a heart of gold!
