Chris Noth was ‘hesitant’ to reprise his role of Mr. Big opposite Sarah Jessica Parker in the Sex and the City revival

He portrayed an iconic character on a beloved show about four best friends navigating life and love in New York City.

And Chris Noth admitted he was ‘hesitant’ to reprise his Mr. Big role for the Sex and the City revival And Just Like That on HBO Max.

The 66-year-old actor felt as though he gave the character his all, but was swayed to come back after a little pep talk from producers.

‘It was a little bit of a sort of creative negotiation because I didn’t really feel I had anything to offer in that role again,’ he told Yahoo! Finance Live. ‘It kind of felt like I had done it. 

‘But [executive producer] Michael Patrick King is just an incredible writer and has incredible creative ideas. And once we got together and talked about the potential of what we could do with the character, I was all in.’ 

During an interview on The Kelly Clarkson show earlier this year, Noth reminisced on a few of his favorite episodes, including where he fell into a lake in Central Park.
