Sarah plays writer-turned-podcaster Carrie Bradshaw and Davis is back as gallerist Charlotte York-Goldenblatt.

Recently, fans made the mind-blowing realization that Cynthia and SJP first worked together all the way back in 1982 – 16 years before Sex And The City.

The pair played sisters in the 1982 TV movie, My Body, My Child, starring Vanessa Redgrave.

In the film, they played the daughters of Vanessa’s Catholic character, who became pregnant again and was debating whether to have an abortion after learning her unborn child will have disabilities. 

A screenshot from the movie reappeared on fan account, Every Outfit on Sex & the City’, as they quipped: ‘Be nice to your colleagues, people. You may still be working with them 39 years later…⁣’

With diehard fans of the pair only knowing Sarah and Cynthia for their roles as Carrie and Miranda, they went into meltdown in the comments.   

Shocked fans penned: ‘This has literally blown my mind’; ‘Omgggg’; ‘Wow! Too cool.’; ‘So sweet❤️’; ‘Whhaaaaat’ [sic].

However, Cynthia herself first brought up the fact back in 2018, when a Brazilian fan site tweeted a picture of the fresh-faced pair on screen.

Cynthia playfully responded: ‘Yes that’s me on the right @brasil_nixon, age 15, but can anyone guess who the girl in the middle is playing my sister?

‘Another fun fact–Vanessa Redgrave played our mother!’

Running from 1998 to 2004, Sex And The City was an immensely popular series focusing on the love and sex lives of four 30-something New York City women.

Along with Cynthia, Sarah and Kristin, Kim Cattrall starred as promiscuous PR agent Samantha Jones.

The women have been filming And Just Like That in New York, with the exception of Kim – who chose not to join the project.  

Kim, 64, made it clear that she had no intention of coming back to any new iteration of the franchise, after a highly publicised and long-standing feud between herself and Sarah.  

The new incarnation of the show will run for ten episodes on HBO.

The network’s chief content officer, Casey Bloys, reflected on Samantha’s exit, saying: ‘Just as in real life, people come into your life, people leave. Friendships fade and new friendships start.’

For Kim and Sarah, it seems the friendship did not fade but was never there to begin with. 

Explaining why she would not return, Kim said in 2019: ‘It’s a “no” from me. You learn lessons in life and my lesson is to do work with good people and try and make it fun.’

The previous year, their frosty relationship played out on social media after the death of Kim’s brother Chris.

When SJP sent her condolences online, Golden-Globe winner Kim thought the sentiment was disingenuous and posted: ‘My mom asked me today, “when will that Sarah Jessica Parker . . . leave you alone?” 

 ‘Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now.’

SJP has denied a feud, saying she had ‘never uttered an unkind, unsupportive, unfriendly word’.
