Kristin Davis Knows Charlotte Seems 'Fully Insane' in 'And Just Like That'

Kristin Davis is getting candid about And Just Like That.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the 56-year-old actress discussed her character Charlotte’s manic behavior on the fourth episode of the Sex and City reboot.

“In terms of her freaking out, I felt really nervous about the [scene with the] neighbor, and that [Charlotte] would seem like a fully insane human being,” she said of the episode, which finds Charlotte trying to impress her new friend LTW (Nicole Ari Parker) and panicking when she realizes she doesn’t have a “more diverse friendship circle.”

“I’ve already had to deal with a lot of these issues because I have Black children. A lot of this is very, very familiar to me in terms of my friends and my family and different people around me, where maybe that was something that they had to deal with,” Kristin continued. “I loved to hear [writer] Keli [Goff]‘s point of view, and I loved to hear Nicole’s point of view because we’re trying to make something that is relatable to all. I always trust [producer] Michael Patrick [King] in terms of knowing how Charlotte would or would not react, and he always modulates me if I’m in any way off.”

The actress adopted daughter Gemma in 2011 and son Wilson in 2018.

She went on to say she was excited to explore race in the new reboot, as it wasn’t a subject tackled head on by the original series.

“It’s something that’s very important to me. I felt that if we have this opportunity that we should take it, and we do. It’s been a joy, and our new writers and our new actors have just been mind-bogglingly brilliant and wonderful, and they have so many ideas,” Kristin explained. “We talked about which artists [should be featured] for months and months. Because you have to go through the artist and the agent [to get the rights], and it’s a process. We really wanted to be current and on point, but also we had to make sure that [the pieces] were available to us. So it was a whole thing. We stressed about it because we wanted to be good, and we wanted to be real. Charlotte really means well, as we know, but she’s not perfect by any means.”

The Holiday in the Wild actress added that she spent a lot of time talking through ideas with her Nicole.

“I loved her input in all things, but especially the scene that we have later where we’re having coffee and we talk about [the dinner parties]. That was a very, very important scene for us, and a scene that changed, I don’t know, possibly 10 times,” she shared. “We were really trying to get it right, get the right tone, the proper gravitas, but also the fact that these are just two people coming together. It’s not easy to do.”

Earlier this month, Kristin shared her thoughts on ageist comments about her and her And Just Like That co-star’s appearances.
