A veteran actress while still not quite out of her teens, Cynthia Nixon's adult career was built on star turns in critically lauded stage productions like "Hurly Burly" and "The Heidi Chronicles," which she alternated with memorable supporting turns in film and television productions like "Amadeus" (1984) and Robert Altman's "Tanner" (HBO, 1988). In 1998, she finally achieved widespread fame as the romantically cautious lawyer Miranda Hobbes in "Sex and the City" (HBO, 1998-2005) and its 2008 theatrical feature. She triumphed again with the successful "Sex and the City 2" (2010), and followed that with roles in such films as "James White" (2015) and "The Only Living Boy in New York" (2017) as well as with a critically-praised turn on TV as Nancy Reagan in the TV movie "Killing Reagan" (National Geographic, 2016). She also won the Tony Award in 2017 as Best Featured Actress in a Play for her role in a revival of Lillian Hellman's "The Little Foxes." In March 2018, Nixon announced her plans to run for governor of New York on the Democratic ticket. An Emmy, Tony and Grammy winner, Nixon remained a highly skilled and respected actress who remained happy to tackle challenging roles, whether on-stage, on-screen, or in the political realm.
