Sarah Jessica Parker‘s popularity is mainly due to the TV series Sex and the City, for which she won four Golden Globes, three Screen Actors Guild Awards and two Emmy Awards.
The television debut was in 1982 with the TV movie My Body, My Child; in the same year she is among the protagonists of the series Square Pegs in the role of Patty Green.
She plays small roles in film, Footloose, 1984, and in 1986 Navigator. Instead, on television we saw her in Dadah is Dead and The Pension, 1987. It was not until 1991 that she will get noticed in the comedy of Mick Jackson L.A. Story opposite Steve Martin.
Has supporting roles in films like Honeymoon in Las Vegas by Andrew Bergman films in which Sarah plays the part of the wife of Nicholas Cage; is a witch (with Bette Midler) in Disney’s Hocus Pocus by Kenny Ortega. She plays twice for Tim Burton: in 1994 is the wife of Ed Wood, in 1996 is a journalist abducted by aliens in Mars Attacks!, two for Hugh Wilson (The First Wives Club, 1996, Dudley Do-Right, 1999), an opposite Woody Allen in the Sunshine Boys, film for the TV by John Erman in 1995.
Despite other flop at the cinema (Lucy Fell, Extreme Measures), she is able to obtain satisfaction in the theater plays in Once upon a time in Mastress and is dedicated to off-Broadway shows like Sylvia and How to Succed in Business Without Really Trying.
The turning point came in 1998 when the American network HBO entrusts the role of Carrie Bradshaw in the series Sex and the City, who will play the role for six seasons and that will win several awards and receiving several nominations. In 2000 she was named by MTV to present the MTV Movie Awards and plays the comedy Hollywood, Vermont by David Mamet, welcomed by critics and audiences. The television series ended in 2004, which in the meantime had become even producer, signed a contract with Gap and continued acting in film with The Family Stone by Thomas Bezuca in 2005 and Failure to Launch. The first film takes the actress nominated for a Golden Globe and the second is welcomed by negative criticism. Both films get good box office. During August 2015, the current husband Matthew Broderick revealed: “The truth is that Sarah did not want to engage in a long TV series, has tried in every way to free itself from the contract, she was even willing to turn three movies for free”. But the HBO rejected the proposals and forced her to interpret the New Yorker journalist again.
She plays in the first and second films adapted from the television series Sex and the City and comedy Did You Hear About the Morgans?, I Don’t Know How She Does It and New Year’s Eve.
