During the interview, she was asked about whether Carrie Bradshaw goes to visit Samantha in London, or if Samantha comes to Paris.

“I think Carrie goes to London,” she said.

She also said that she has an idea of what the two would then talk about.

“A little bit. A friendship with that amount of time underneath it is really valuable. Carrie experienced a life-altering and devastating incident, and it’s changed her perspective and how she loves and who she loves. And I think friendships are worth salvaging. And as she says in the beginning of the season, she’s made attempts and Samantha at that point didn’t feel willing, wanted to engage. But there are so many little steps along the way that are olive branches,” she continued.

“I think that the conversation was grown up. I think it was a detente. I think it allows for comfort on all sides.”

She also further elaborated on her decision to move on without Kim.

“We didn’t go to Kim for this. After we didn’t do the [third] movie and the studio couldn’t meet what she wanted to do, we have to hear her and listen to her and what was important to her. It didn’t fit into what was important or needed for us. I haven’t participated in or read articles, although people are inclined to let me know. I don’t think I would, because I think there’s just too much public history of feelings on her part that she’s shared,” she said.

“And I think there’s a very distinct line between Samantha and Kim. Samantha’s not gone. Samantha’s present, and I think handled with such respect and elegance. She wasn’t villainized. She was a human being who had feelings about a relationship, so I think we found a way to address it which was necessary and important for people that loved that character. But I think we’ve also discovered there are lots of voices that can be meaningful to Carrie in new ways but also in familiar ways. So I think we would carry on as we have.”

There are also more details about Willie Garson‘s character’s Stanford’s intended storyline.
