“When it first came out that I was replacing the Samantha character — which is not true at all, so please write that — I have been yelled at, and I’ve also been attacked with love,” she said.

“I’ve been photographed in places I should never be photographed. The fans are so excited and over the top. I had some idea of that because I am one of those fans but I had no idea [the extent of it],” Nicole continued.

The actress will be playing a character named Lisa Todd Wexley in the revival, a “Park Avenue mother of three and documentarian.”

She also shouted out her co-stars Sara Ramirez, Sarita Choudhury and Karen Pittman, who she says are playing “four women of color who are fully realized women with full lives.”

And Just Like That… is set to debut in December and you can check out the photos from set here!
