Who Is Playing Rose in ‘Sex and the City’ Reboot? Everything to Know About Alexa Swinton

Sex and the City was one of the most popular cable television franchises in the early 2000s. It was the story of four women navigating love, life, and great fashion in New York City. Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda frequently met to discuss their careers and their sex lives.

Over the course of six seasons, fans were able to see the growth of these characters from the depths of the dating scene to find their true loves.  The relationship that fans craved the most was the on-again, off-again romance of Carrie and Mr. Big. They received the ultimate payoff with the two being wed in the second franchise movie, but where they are now is a question yet to be answered.

The series was so popular that it had a prequel spinoff The Carrie Diaries, two movies, and now it is receiving a reboot to the series on HBO Max. While the storyline in the reboot is s closely held secret, fans already know that the show’s kids have grown up and are ready to have a few storylines of their own, including Rose Goldenblatt, Charlotte’s youngest daughter, who actor Alexa Swinton will play.
