Sarah Jessica Parker posited an interesting theory about her “Sex and the City” character Carrie Bradshaw as she chatted with News.com.au.
Parker, who played the much-loved columnist in the hit series, which ran for six seasons and got made into two movies, referenced her trio of girlfriends — Miranda Hobbs, Charlotte York, and Samantha Jones — in the chat.
“Sometimes I’m like, we don’t even know if Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte were real.
“Sometimes I [think] Hmmm, just to mess with myself. Think about it: Did Carrie make them up? She’s telling a story every week. This is her point of view, it’s almost always her point of view.”
That’s not all the actress had to say about Bradshaw, also talking about the time she left New York and moved to Paris with artist Aleksandr Petrovsky in the final season.
Parked asked, “When Carrie went to Paris and left her computer, for the first time Carrie wasn’t telling the story. In the entire run of the series, if you think about it for a second, right?
“She left her computer, which was the conduit (through) which the audience knows about Charlotte, Miranda, Samantha.”
Parker talked about why fans still love the show, which was on TV from 1998 to 2004.
“These friendships, real or not real, as described were beyond a source of joy and a connection and a way of relating, they were a necessity.
“I think that that really made an impact with audiences because either they were feeling that way… or they wanted to feel that way.”
