The Big C on TV3

9:30pm – Tuesday, November 23 on TV 3

From Sex and the City to The Big C. This week sees the introduction of Sex and the City’s Cynthia Nixon to The Big C when the series continues its critically acclaimed first season on Tuesday, November 23rd at 9:30pm on 3.

The actress who portrayed Miranda in Sex and the City is this week returning to television, playing a long lost and flaky college roommate of Laura Linney’s Cathy.

“Cynthia came in for our first [joint] table read last week, and we are so excited,” Laura Linney’s explains to American TV Guide about getting the opportunity to work with the fellow Emmy winner.

“She and I have known each other for many, many years… not well, but you know of each other, you see each other backstage and you root for each other,” Linney continues, explaining her friendship with Nixon.

“For anyone who grew up in Manhattan when I did, Cynthia is a huge legend, particularly within the theatrical community,” she continues.

“For all us theatre geeks, she was royalty. Jenny Bicks [The Big C writer/producer] is our show runner, and she was part of Sex and the City, too – so there’s also that connection.”

Make sure not to miss Sex and the City’s Cynthia Nixon when The Big C continues on Tuesday, November 23rd at 9:30pm on 3.
