We have always enjoyed to see the very talented Cynthia Nixon on screen! Although she made her acting debut in the early 1980's in the 1980 Boradway revival of The Philadelphia Story, she really came to prominence for her role as "Miranda Hobbes" in the television series Sex and the City and its film sequels.
For that role, Nixon won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series in 2004, which was the last year we saw her on the television show alongside Sarah-Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, and Kristin Davis. What has she done since then? Let's find out!
What has "Miranda Hobbes" been doing these days?
In the past years the 53-year-old has appeared in numerous television shows and films, like Law & Order: Criminal Intent, 30 Rock, Hannibal. Her most recent appearances are in the 2017 film The Only Living Boy in New York, and the 2019 movie Stray Dolls. She is currently working on a couple of exciting projects like the upcoming American drama television series Ratched, which is set to premiere in 2020, as well as in the upcoming show The Gilded Age (release date to be announced.)
Apart from acting Cynthia Nixon has pursued her career in politics. In 2018 she announced her campaign for Governor of New York. Her platform focused on income inequality, renewable energy, and universal health care, stopping mass incarceration in the States, and protecting undocumented children from deportation.
