The actor had to make a small appearance in the finale of season 1. But the production preferred to put together the episode.
Targeted by numerous accusations of sexual assault, the actor Chris Noth will not appear in the rest of Sex and the City. Carrie Bradshaw’s Mr Big is “out” for good … Spoiler warning!
Sarah Jessica Parker lets go of Chris Noth: “I support all women …”
Obviously, the character has been dead and buried since the end of the first episode, after succumbing to a heart attack. But he still had to put a head in the series, to say goodbye. Chris Noth had indeed filmed one last scene of Mr. Big. A streak that was scheduled to appear in the season 1 finale of And Just Like That (scheduled for February 3).
In this sequence, Carrie was venturing out to the Pont des Arts in Paris to scatter Big’s ashes in the Seine. It had to include a poetic-fantasy element with an appearance of Big, speaking to Carrie. But it will ultimately be cut from the final cut.
According to cited sources by TVLine, the creative team of And Just Like That decided that this final appearance of Noth, shot with Parker in Paris a few months ago, would no longer be part of the scene.
The actor, fired from his other series The Equalizer, just after the publication of these accusations, is more than ever in the hot seat in Hollywood. He always denies the facts with which he is accused.
