Cynthia Nixon was born April 9, 1966, in New York, New York. A versatile performer, she began her career on the New York stage as a teenager. She made her Broadway debut in The Philadelphia Story in 1980. Somehow Nixon also made time to film a small role in Amadeus (1984). In 1997, Nixon auditioned for what would prove to be the biggest project of her career so far. She won the role of Miranda Hobbes in a new HBO comedy series Sex and the City based on a newspaper column by Candace Bushnell. Sarah Jessica Parker played the columnist – named Carrie Bradshaw in the show. After Sex and the City went off the air in 2004, Cynthia Nixon has done her best to remind the world of her great acting range. She appeared as Eleanor Roosevelt in the HBO film Warm Springs (2005). In 2006, she won her first Tony Award for her performance as a grief-stricken mother in the play Rabbit Hole.
