Washington [US]Feb. 4 (ANI): Actor Chris Noth’s final scenes have been cut from the ‘Sex and the City’ finale ‘And Just Like That’ amid sexual assault allegations against the star.
The series followed the heartbreak of Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) as her longtime love Mr Big (Noth) suffered a fatal heart attack in the first episode of His Peloton.

According to Fox News, in October 2021, Noth and Parker were seen filming what were believed to be throwback scenes in Paris. Noth, 67, was supposed to appear in a fantasy dream sequence where the couple reunited on Paris’s Pont des Arts as his TV wife scatters her ashes.
However, these scenes were dropped for a long time, and they never appeared in the finale.
Previous reports suggested that the showrunners felt the filmed and archived footage of Noth’s appearance was not significant enough to risk being released given the allegations that have been leveled against him.
The actor played Big in “Sex and the City,” which aired from 1998 to 2004. He reprized the role for both movies in 2008 and 2010.
One of the women who accused Noth of assaulting her said her retaliation against Big on the reboot, which premiered in December 2021, prompted her to speak out. The allegations were made that month.
The star has previously denied the allegations, which date back to 2004 and 2015.
“The accusations made against me by people I met years, if not decades ago, are categorically false,” read a statement from Noth previously provided to Fox News Digital by his representatives.
“These stories could have been 30 years or 30 days ago – no always means no – that’s a line I didn’t cross. The encounters were consensual,” the statement added.
At the time the allegations were raised, Parker, along with co-stars Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, came out publicly in support of the women who claimed Noth sexually assaulted them.
“We are deeply saddened to hear the allegations against Chris Noth,” read the trio’s joint statement, shared on Instagram. “We support the women who have come forward and shared their painful experiences.”
They added: “We know it must be a very difficult thing to do and we commend them for it.” (ANI)
