Near the end of episode 1, fans’ hearts fluttered while watching Chris NothBig’s character dies on his bathroom floor from a sudden heart attack.
“And just like that,” said Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), “Big die.”
Talking to Diversity of Big’s death, King said, “The reason I did it was because it was shocking, but also because it was great for Carrie’s character, because she always couldn’t have him.
“She only had him at the end of the series and she only had him really for a little while. Now he’s been taken away, but not by another woman on the Upper East Side or divorced – but by something she can never explain, which is a death. “
King added that the first two episodes were set up to be as realistic as possible to make losing to Big pack a real punch.
“We believe Carrie Bradshaw has been devastated. So we’re going to let her heal and mourn and come back and move on,” he said. “I have no interest in taking an audience into a dark forest and leaving them there without a flashlight. We will not leave Carrie alone. But how do we do that? Why do we do that? How far it goes remains to be seen. “
Speaking of Carrie’s narration, he said: “There’s no dubbing except for a line at the end. That’s because Carrie doesn’t have the overview. I destroyed her world. She has a sentence at the end of every show, that’s it. And it is true for the time being. ”
Cynthia Nixon, who plays Miranda and is also an executive producer on the series, added: “It’s a very bold way to start. This is about people being thrown out of their comfort zone. It is called And just like that because it means you think your life is one-way and something will happen. And suddenly, you don’t even realize your life.”
Kristin Davis, who returns as Charlotte, said: “Of course this is a very, very, very important thing to do and I am very emotional about it. Worry is the right word. But we’re also doing a show about people in their fifties. All of us, who have lived this long and are still alive, have lost someone. This is how it is. Life is this way. We’ve been through a global pandemic – we’re still technically in it. It’s not all rosy.”
