Biography

Sarah Jessica Parker (born March 25th, 1965) is an American actress and producer, with a portfolio of television, film and theatre performances. She is best known for her role as Carrie Bradshaw, on the hit TV show Sex and the City.

Performing Career: As a young girl, Sarah Jessica Parker trained in singing and ballet, soon being cast in the Broadway production of The Innocents.

She and four siblings appeared in a revival of The Sound of Music, and Parker went on to the new Broadway musical Annie - first in the small role of "July" and then in the lead role, playing the role for a year.

In 1982, Sarah Jessica Parker was cast as the co-lead of the sitcom Square Pegs. The show lasted only one season before being cancelled, but Parker's performance was critically well-received. In the three years that followed, she was cast in four films - the most significant of those being Footloose in 1984 and Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, co-starring Helen Hunt, in 1985.

In 1986, Parker appeared in the cult classic Flight of the Navigator, a Disney science fiction film.

By the early 1990s, Parker's career was gaining momentum. She appeared in L.A. Story, Honeymoon in Vegas, co-starring Nicolas Cage, Hocus Pocus and opposite Johnny Depp in the critically acclaimed movie Ed Wood.

Before the year 2000, Sarah Jessica Parker would later go on to feature in Miami Rhapsody, Mars Attacks!, The First Wives Club, The Substance of Fire and Til There Was You.

Sex and the City: In 1998, Sarah Jessica Parker landed a role on the TV show which would become an instant hit, seeing her profile soar overnight.

In 2004, Parker won an Emmy award for her lead role as Carrie Bradshaw (after five consecutive losses).

After Sex and the City ended in 2004, many thought rumours of a film would never leave fan sites and gossip columns, but in 2008, the film would be released and a sequel is potentially in the works.

Personal life: Parker was romantically involved with actor Robert Downey Jr. from 1984 until 1991. They met on the set of Firstborn.

On May 19th, 1997, she married actor Matthew Broderick.

The couple's first child, son James Wilkie Broderick, was born on October 28th, 2002. He was named after Broderick's father, the actor James Broderick. His middle name is that of author Wilkie Collins, an author Broderick and Parker admire.

E! News confirms that prior to her appearance at the 2008 Major League Baseball All-Star, she had her signature mole removed. Regardless of photographic evidence, she denied it had been removed.

Sarah Jessica Parker Was Too Close To Carrie Bradshaw


Sarah Jessica Parker

Parker, who played the role from 1998 to 2004 on the HBO show, said in a new interview in the Wall Street Journal that she found it hard to understand her character at times.

Carrie was a sex columnist living in New York, and because Parker also resides in the city, it led to many fans confusing her with the character.

"People probably don't realise that Carrie Bradshaw was radically different from who I was, who I continue to be," she says. "I think that sometimes because we look alike and live in the same city and haunt the same neighborhoods, that it was sort of like I was playing in the sandbox, when in truth it took real work every day to be her, to understand her, to not judge her."

Sarah Jessica Parker feels more famous now than she ever has.

Although the final episode of her TV series 'Sex and the City' aired in 2004, with just two spin-off movies in the decade since, Sarah says social media has made her more accessible than ever to her fans.

She explained: ''My husband [Matthew Broderick] and I are genuinely surprised that we feel more public now than we have ever felt. It's social media.

You are not ever, ever, ever, ever alone.''

At photo shoot. Nails need to be presentable. I heard this is a miracle. X, Sj
And then around 8:33p post forty carrots on my walk home  I found this beauty. Discarded like so much trash. Waiting to be carted away  on bulk Saturday. Or maybe waiting for someone just like me to rescue her. 
I named her Bedford and with the help of a friend and the good fortune to flag a taxi, she is now home with us. Right where she belongs. Just waiting for a good scrub and some new hardware. 
Isn't that a wonderful bedtime story? 
X, SJ
Closing out the day. 
Some images from along the way.
I like this one. A lot.
X, SJ
Then after a breathtaking afternoon with the glorious company of @nycballet you get this greeting when you emerge. 
No complaints today. X, SJ
Answer, the one on the left. 
And I waited ALL week. 
X, SJ
It was a great privilege and honor to attend the release of The ‪#ActuallySheCan Film Series last night @Tribeca.
The 3 short films, released today, were all directed by female filmmakers and tell the stories of ambitious young women challenging convention and achieving their dreams.
It was impossible to walk away uninspired, and I feel grateful to have played a small role in the evening. X, SJ
People!  Find a way.  @nycballet 2016 Spring Season happening til May 29th. 
Magnificence, moment after moment after moment. What glory! Never better. 
X, Sj
Yep. Agree. X, SJ
Godspeed.
