‘Sex and the City’: Sarah Jessica Parker Reveals the Last Words She Said as Carrie Bradshaw
Sarah Jessica Parker played iconic character Carrie Bradshaw for six seasons on the HBO show Sex and the City (and later in two feature films) before HBO Max announced that she’d reprise the character in the spinoff show, And Just Like That… If you’re wondering what Parker’s last words were as character Carrie Bradshaw, read on to find out.
Why viewers loved Carrie Bradshaw in ‘Sex and the City’
Audiences really loved Carrie Bradshaw for many reasons. While Carrie was the object of affection of many attractive and charismatic men, she first and foremost was a great friend to Charlotte York Goldenblatt (Kristin Davis), Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon), and Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall). Some may argue that the show’s center point was Carrie’s love life, but her core group of friends was definitely the nucleus of each episode, with the women supporting each other over brunch.
Carrie also was a talented writer, with her dating column even attracting television studios and a book compiling her best essays on love and romance in New York City.
Furthermore, Carrie’s fashion was a focus for the character, with her outfits and shoe obsession sometimes being storylines for episodes.
Beyond that, fans were split up into two main “teams” over Carrie’s love life, as well: Team Big (Chris Noth) and Team Aidan (John Corbett).
But what was the last thing Parker said as Carrie Bradshaw and what happened on the last day of filming?
Sarah Jessica Parker’s last words as Carrie Bradshaw in ‘Sex and the City’
Parker reminisced on the last day of shooting for the HBO series with HBO.com. She remembered filming on West Village’s Perry Street in New York City. Parker revealed the last words she said in character for the television show.
“It was freezing cold and the last words I ever uttered was during a fight with [Mr.] Big and I said: ‘You can drive down this street all you want because I don’t live here anymore,'” Parker said. “It was amazing to me it was the last line I said on the last day.”
Those being the last lines Parker said as Carrie must have been a full-circle moment for the actor, since the show started and ended with Carrie and Mr. Big, in one way or another.
What else happened on the last day of shooting ‘Sex and the City’
Parker also talked about what happened behind-the-scenes while on her last day of filming for Sex and the City.
“My husband [actor Matthew Broderick] surprised me with all my friends even though we were filming until two in the morning,” Parker said about the last day. “I was just so happy and sad and filled with so many emotions — it was so fitting and beautifully planned.”
Of course, Parker went on to play Carrie again in the feature films, Sex and the City (2008) and Sex and the City 2 (2010).
It will definitely be interesting for fans to see where Carrie’s character picks up in the spinoff show on HBO Max, more than 10 years after the sequel movie. We can’t wait to see where Carrie goes — and wears — next.
