Just like that. Sarah Jessica Parker is giving her take on how the Sex and the City revival handled the absence of Kim CattrallSamantha is the character of.

As fans well know, Cattrall—who starred alongside Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis in the original seriesAnd movies—had made it clear that she had no interest in reprising the role and wouldn’t be joining the cast of the reboot And Just Like That….

Instead of finding out about Samantha Cattrall’s character, Parker’s Carrie were involved in a tussle with Samantha Parker after Carrie fired Samantha from her position as her publicist. Although Samantha didn’t physically appear on the show, Carrie still had occasional texts exchanges with her. 

The episode of February 14th, 2008 on Andy Cohen: Live with Andy CohenParker stated that Samantha’s absence wasn’t her fault, and added that Parker had “got the message across since it’s not spoken” so she can’t claim any responsibility. Instead, she gave all the kudos to the show’s head writer and showrunner Michael Patrick King as well as to his “extraordinary group of amazingly talented writers.”
