It has been reported that Chris Noth, who played Carrie Bradshaw’s love interest Mr Big, will not return. However, it has been said that these reports may not be true.
In February, Page Six announced that Chris Noth will not be repeating the role of John James “Mr. Big ”Preston. Noth played the part of Carrie’s love interest that was not emotionally available in the six seasons of the original show and in each of the major films.
By the end of the second film, the character Sarah Jessica Parker, Carrie Bradshaw, and Mr. Big were married. However, when the third film was deleted, rumors circulated that the writers intended to kill Mr Big in the unreleased script. It’s unclear how the character will be written off in the new series – or whether he will do it at all.
Following the Page Six report, he responded to an Instagram comment asking, “Dear Mr. [Noth] … why in heaven do you not play my sweetheart Mr Big ?? My heart is [broken]… “
According to Us Weekly, the 66-year-old actor replied, “Everything changes … including calls in the rags.” He responded to another comment, saying, “well if a page six says … it has to be true ”with a winking emoticon.
In another version, the hosts of the “Sex and the City” podcast, the Bradshaw Boys, shared an image of Noth’s ideas, and Charlotte, who plays Charlotte, enjoyed the role.
