Cynthia Nixon’s wife knew her And Just Like That love scene was ‘going to be hot’
She got hot and heavy in the kitchen with co-star Sara Ramirez in And Just Like That.
And Cynthia Nixon’s wife, Christine Marinoni, knew that moment was going to be “hot” and “real” with a “queer” writer coming up with the scene.
†[Episode writer] Samantha Irby told us all about that scene before we could ever read it,” Cynthia, 56, told Bowen Yang as part of an interview for Variety† “With a queer woman in the writer’s room writing this queer sex scene, my wife was like, ‘I know it’s going to be hot, and I know it’s going to be real.’

“We had an intimacy coordinator and we tried to do it in different ways. Miranda continues to fantasize in the next episode. And so we wanted to record it at the same time, but make it look different, because things look different when we remember them than when they actually happen.”
Bowen said of the love scene, “What I find remarkable is that you had to sell that moment in the kitchen as life-changing. You have to believe she’s going to rearrange everything in her life.’
Cynthia said, “And you have to feel both the sexual shock and the emotional breakdown that happens later, not only that this what’s happening is earth shattering, but that she’s been in winter for so long. It’s both of those things.’
In And Just Like That, Miranda dumps her husband Steve and starts dating non-binary comedian Che Diaz (Sarah).
Hot and heavy! Nixon and co-star Sara Ramirez had a sexy love scene in the kitchen in And Just Like That
Earlier this month, Cynthia revealed that she thought Miranda was coded as “queer,” even going back to the original Sex And The City series, which ran on HBO from 1998 to 2004.
While the star acknowledged that the series didn’t have much representation for gay women, she said in an interview with Variety for their Pride release that Miranda was a ‘stand-in’ for them thanks to what she saw as ‘lesbian qualities’.
Cynthia suggested there was evidence that Miranda was queer in the first series.
Old news: Nixon, 56, shared with Variety in an interview with Variety published earlier this month that although her Sex And The City character Miranda had always been a stranger, even before starring in And Just Like That; seen on May 24 in NYC
“Even though she was only really interested in men, I think Miranda had a lot of other weird and frankly lesbian qualities about her,” she said. ‘And I think for a lot of gay women, they — we didn’t have a gay woman! But she was a stand-in for the gay women we didn’t have.”
Michael Patrick King, the showrunner for both the original show and its continuation, asked Nixon if she wanted her character to be just like her on the new show.
“I was like, ‘Sure, why not!’ she said. “If we’re trying to do different things, and show different worlds, and show different aspects of these characters, why wouldn’t we?”

Moving on: In the new series, she ends her marriage to Steve (David Eigenberg) to date non-binary comedian Che Diaz (Sara Ramirez, who graced the cover of Variety).
To give him space to develop the character, King decided he needed to get Miranda out of her marriage to Steve (David Eigenberg), although he initially envisioned that she would wake up via an affair with her professor after she went back to school. gone. †
Nixon, who didn’t mind showing that Miranda’s life was collapsing to some degree, vetoed sleeping with a professor.
“I know we’re crossing a lot of lines here that people have a lot of opinions about, but for me, one line I don’t want to see Miranda cross is dating her professor, you know? I don’t think that’s okay,” she said.
However, while going on with Che (played by non-binary actor Sara Ramirez) and revealing her true sexual orientation came as a shock to some longtime viewers, King was perfectly in line with how Miranda married in the first place, which he said was ‘almost against her will.’
“Miranda was an anarchy,” he explained. “She said, ‘Why do I have to wear a dress and go out and pretend guys are smarter than them?'”
Chaos Agent: Showrunner Michael Patrick King said Miranda was always the “anarchy character.” He originally wanted her awakening to come from an affair with a professor, but Nixon vetoed it; still from And Just Like That…
Patterns: Nixon added that her character has always been at odds with “power, and feminine power versus masculine power, and women get the short straw — and that’s a big deal for women who are queer”; still from Sex And The City
Nixon added that her character was always at odds with “power, and feminine power versus masculine power, and women get a hard time — and that’s a big problem for queer women.’
“I think not having to be under a man’s thumb has always been one of the attractive things that being with another woman has to offer.”
Nixon added that Samantha (Kim Cattrall) briefly dated a female painter (played by Sônia Braga), suggesting that Sex And The City was more geared towards queer characters than its reputation would suggest.
