Cynthia Nixon made her film debut in Little Darlings at 12 years old and her Broadway debut at 14 in The Philadelphia Story. Since then she’s appeared in over 40 plays, countless films and television shows, and received Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Awards. Best known for her role as Miranda on HBO’s Sex and the City, Nixon will appear in Life Itself alongside Diane Keaton and Morgan Freeman and Josh Mond’s indie film James White. She recently wrapped Nikole Beckwith’s drama Stockholm, Pennsylvania, opposite Saoirse Ronan and appeared in a recurring role on NBC’s Hannibal. This fall she will appear in the Broadway revival of Tom Stoppard’s The Real Thing as Charlotte, the mother of the character she created in the same play exactly 30 years ago: In real life; Nixon spends a good portion of her off-time fighting for funding for New York public schools and for LGBT equality. She lives in downtown Manhattan with her wife Christine Marinoni and their three children.
