Biography

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. Her private life briefly eclipsed her newfound pop culture icon status when she ended her 15-year relationship with the father of her two children in 2004 to be with education activist Christine Marinoni. Nixon's fame and talent outweighed tabloid interest in her personal life, however, and she triumphed again with the successful "Sex and the City 2" (2010). An Emmy, Tony and Grammy winner, Nixon remained a highly skilled and respected actress who remained happy to tackle challenging roles on the stage or on screen.
