Parker had been acting for years (Square Pegs, L.A. Story, The First Wives Club) before she landed the role that catapulted her to superstardom: cosmopolitan-drinking, hopeless romantic Carrie Bradshaw on the groundbreaking HBO show Sex and the City (SATC), which debuted in 1998.

In addition to reprising the iconic character in numerous spin-offs — 2008's Sex in the City film, its Sex in the City 2 (2010) sequel and HBO Max's And Just Like That... series in 2021 — Parker has been busy working on other projects.

She went on to star in films, including 2005's The Family Stone and 2006's Failure to Launch, and appeared on three episodes of FOX's Glee in 2012, her first TV gig since SATC. Parker also returned to HBO when she starred as Frances Dufresne on the series Divorce from 2016 to 2019.

Outside of television, Parker formed her own production company, Pretty Matches, in 2005. She and her husband, Matthew Broderick, got married in 1997 and share three kids — twin daughters Tabitha Hodge and Marion Loretta Elwell and son James Wilkie Broderick.

Celebrated performers of both stage and screen, Broderick is a two-time Tony Award winner, and Parker is a two-time Emmy Award winner. In 2022, Parker and Broderick costarred in the Broadway revival of Neil Simon's Plaza Suite.
