Believe it or not, it’s been 20 (!) years since Sex and the City first premiered and raised the ever-important question: Are you a Carrie, a Samantha, a Charlotte or a Miranda? (FYI we’re a “Carrlotte.”) And though the show’s four central women have remained in the spotlight for the most part, we can’t help but wonder—what happened to the rest of the crew? Read on to find out what some of our favorite lesser-known SATC actors are up to now.
Ever Wonder What Happened to These D-List ‘Sex and the City’ Characters? We Have Answers
Lynn Cohen (magda)
Miranda’s (Cynthia Nixon) former housekeeper hasn’t slowed down since the end of the show. She starred in the film Munich and had stints on Law & Order, Days of Our Lives, Nurse Jackie and The Affair. Fun fact: She even played a woman named Mags in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which sounds an awful lot like Magda. Coincidence? We hope not.
Evan Handler (harry Goldenblatt)
After playing Charlotte’s (Kristin Davis) lawyer hubby, Handler went on to snag a series of pretty fabulous roles on Californication, Lost, 24, The Astronaut Wives Club and American Crime Story. The actor recently wrapped production on an indie film called Foster Boy and made a cameo on an episode of The Good Fight, so clearly he’s still working it Harry Goldenblattt–style.
Willie Garson (stanford Blatch)
Fun fact: Carrie’s (Sarah Jessica Parker) gay confidante was the only recurring character to appear in all six seasons of the show. Since then, he’s appeared in White Collar, Two and a Half Men, Hot in Cleveland and more. Now, the former Stanford is living his best life playing Gerard Hirsch on Hawaii Five-0, parenting his high-school-aged son and LOLing at @overheardLA Instagram posts. (Same.)
Sean Palmer (marcus Adant)
After bidding his role as Stanford’s Broadway dancer boyfriend adieu, it appears Palmer was inspired to lean into the whole stage actor thing. Since appearing on SATC, he played Prince Eric in the Broadway production of The Little Mermaid and snagged a role in Broadway’s The Apple Tree revival. Oh, did we mention he also portrayed an intern on Grey’s Anatomy?
Julie Halston (bitsy Von Muffling)
Remember the socialite who married Nathan Lane’s cabaret singer character in season five and ended up pregnant (much to everyone’s surprise)? Well, since playing the fabulously named Bitsy, Halston has continued acting and starred in a number of Broadway and off-Broadway plays such as Twentieth Century, Anything Goes, You Can’t Take It with You and On the Town. And get this—she’s even won four Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs Awards. Talk about full circle.
Blair Underwood (dr. Robert Leeds)
After being dissed and dismissed by Miranda, the IRL Robert Leeds has become somewhat of a TV vet, starring in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and most recently as Owen Hall on Quantico with Meghan Markle’s girl Priyanka Chopra. Turns out Chopra wasn’t the only Meg fan on the Quantico set. Underwood took it upon himself to Instagram several royal wedding photos on the Duchess of Sussex’s big day and warmed our heart in the process.
Mario Cantone (anthony Marantino)
Like several other SATC stars, Cantone has become a fixture on Broadway and has even received a Tony nomination for his performance in Laugh Wh**e. But that’s not all. He also voiced the role of Mikey Abromowitz in the beloved animated film Surf’s Up, judged the 2014 Miss America pageant and co-hosted The View several times. Our favorite part? He’s since married his partner of 20-plus years, Jerry Dixon.
Jason Lewis (smith Jerrod)
After playing Samantha’s (Kim Cattrall) super hot boyfriend, Lewis snagged a couple of TV cameos and is now starring on the NBC series Midnight, Texas. The show takes place in a small town where vampires, witches and psychics run rampant. Guess who he plays? A literal angel named Joe Strong who moonlights as a tattoo artist and has retractable wings.
Ron Livingston (jack Berger)
After his breakup with Carrie, Livingston totally switched gears and went the movie route. He starred in The Conjuring and most recently played Charlize Theron’s hubby in Tully. So how does one go from designer shoes to nefarious spirits and breast pumps? Not quite sure.
Cynthia Nixon (miranda Hobbes)
OK, OK, Cynthia Nixon is not a secondary SATC character, but we just had to include her recent extracurricular. After appearing in The Only Living Boy in New York, Nixon decided to go the full-on Miranda route and is currently running for governor of New York. And it gets even better—she’s selling SATC-themed campaign apparel. It’s like we died and went to Bergdorf’s.
