Her role in the cult series “Sex and the City” made Cynthia Nixon famous – and according to her, gave her more self-confidence. She learned a lot from her role as lawyer Miranda Hobbes, the 57-year-old told the “Augsburger Allgemeine”.

“I’ve really learned to trust my opinions more and to be more open and confrontational about standing up for my own opinions,” Nixon said. Miranda had “extremely feminist views” 25 years ago when the series premiered. At first she had little in common with Miranda, but by the end of the series she felt like her “in every way”.

Nixon can currently be seen in the second season of the “Sex and the City” sequel “And Just Like That” (streamed on Sky or Wow).
