Cynthia Nixon is an American actress and progressive activist. For her portrayal of Miranda Hobbes in the HBO series Sex and the City (1998–2004), she won the 2004 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. She reprised the role in the films Sex and the City (2008) and Sex and the City 2 (2010). Her other film credits include Amadeus (1984), James White (2015), and playing Emily Dickinson in A Quiet Passion (2016).

Nixon’s long-running partnership with Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, and Kristin Davis in the iconic TV series “Sex and the City” and its subsequent movie adaptations, contributed significantly to the success of the show and earned the ensemble numerous awards, including Golden Globes. In theatre, she shared the stage with Laura Linney in the 2017 Broadway revival of “The Little Foxes,” where both actresses alternated in the lead roles, a performance that led to Tony nominations for both. Nixon also collaborated with the renowned Philip Seymour Hoffman and Laura Linney again in the independent drama film “The Savages,” which garnered critical acclaim. Her partnership with Christina Hendricks and Retta Lynn in the television series “Good Girls” allowed her to further display her dramatic range. A memorable collaboration on the political front was with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, campaigning together on various social issues. Her work with Neil Meron and Craig Zadan in the television musical drama “Smash” further demonstrated her versatility as an actress.
