Kristin Davis is back as Charlotte York in ‘And Just Like That…’
Davis returned as the attentive mother in the revival. And Just Like That… revealed in the first episode that she’s still married to Harry (Chris Jackson), and they’re raising their kids, Lily (Cathy Ang) and Rose (Alexa Swinton).

Kristin Davis responds to comments about her face
“Everyone wants to comment, pro or nay or whatever, on our hair and our faces and our this and our that,” Davis told The Sunday Times. “The level of intensity of it was a shock.”
The shock wasn’t her only emotion in reaction to the response. “I feel angry and I don’t want to feel angry all the time, so I don’t look at it, I just know it’s there,” she explained.
This isn’t the first time the actor’s body has been scrutinized publicly. She said people wrote articles about her being “pear-shaped” during Sex and the City. “It would stress me out a fair amount because I couldn’t avoid it,” she said. “I kind of feel like that’s how it is now too.”
Davis knew criticism was coming

“We did see it coming although I have to say it still hurts sometimes,” she said. Davis said the paparazzi would stay with them for a long time. She realized they wanted to take a bad picture of them. “It’s frustrating,” she said.
The series opened with the characters talking about being older and their looks. Charlotte recommended to Miranda that she should dye her grey hair, but Miranda refused. Her red hair is no longer and she’s completely grey. It looks like the series will talk about age and the expectations on women throughout the season.
