Nixon's Dramatic Acting Debut

SEX AND THE CITY star CYNTHIA NIXON got her big acting break starring in two Broadway shows at the same time.
The 42-year-old actress was still in college when she landed roles in two big New York productions and tirelessly dashed between the different theatres each night
She explains, "As an 18-year-old, I got parts simultaneously with two Broadway shows. In Hurlyburly, I played a waif in the first act with Chris Walken, Harvey Keitel and Jerry Stiller. Then I zoomed two blocks, changed clothes and played Jeremy Irons' daughter in the very British The Real Thing. Then I ran back to Hurlyburly where I was transformed into the slutty character my waif had then become."
But Nixon eventually resigned because her hectic schedule left no time for college work: "I finally quit because school had to come first."
