In her school years, Parker got into both theatre and ballet, with some small local stage performances boosting her confidence in future career paths. At the age of 12, she successfully passed the casting to Broadway play Annie and got her first serious role as a character in July. She reprised this role for over 4 years. In order to be around Sarah, whole her family moved over to live in New Jersey.
In ’80s Parker appeared in several notable movies such as Girls Just Want to Have Fun (1985), Flight of the Navigator (1986), etc. But she was still too far away from claiming her place in the industry.
Parker’s rise to prominence happened at the beginning of the ’90s. She appeared in movies of various genres, from comedy to sci-fi films, such as Hocus Pocus (1993), Striking Distance (1993), The First Wives Club" (1996), Mars Attacks! (1996), which became the most significant in Parker's career at that time. She finally got an opportunity to work with some of the titans of the 90’s movie industry, including Bruce Willis, Bette Midler, Nicolas Cage, Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn.
Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis rounded up the main cast of the show. Open and forthright, series about four New York friends almost immediately spawned a sizeable cult following, was produced for over 6 years, and even received a bunch of big-screen follow-ups.
After the release of the series, Parker’s name was associated mostly with Carrie. Every season of the show brought her Golden Globe nominations in Best Lead Actress in the TV series category. Sarah won 4 of such awards even receiving three of them in a row (2001-2003).
Sarah Jessica Parker has yet to repeat the success she had in Sex and the City. And while she wasn’t featured in any openly disastrous 2000’s movies, Sarah clearly failed to make a real splash in the industry. Parker’s most successful recent works are The Family Stone (2005), where she joined the established cast of Diane Keaton, Rachel McAdams, and Claire Danes, Failure to Launch (2006), where she partnered up with Matthew McConaughey, and Garry Marshall’s romantic comedy movie New Year’s Eve (2011). Sarah also appeared in a couple of TV shows with her roles in the 2012 comedy-drama series Glee and the 2016 comedy series Divorce being the most notable.
Sarah Jessica Parker has a very strong social media presence. Her Instagram account is well-managed with a steady flow of fresh posts and photos and has over 4 million followers.
In May 1997 Sarah married Matthew Broderick, the fellow actor, and singer. Five years later they became parents; Sarah gave birth to their son, James Wilkie.
According to Zoomboola.com, in 2009 the couple became parents to two twin daughters, Tabitha Hodge and Marion Loretta Elwell via surrogate. Sarah’s family spends most of the time in their home in New York, but sometimes passes summers in Ireland.
Sarah’s brothers and sister are too closely related to the movie, theatre, and TV industry. Pippin Parker is an acting school teacher as well as playwright and director; Timothy (also known as Toby), Andrew and Megan became actors.
Internet as always is full of rumors considering the possibility of the return of Sex and the City. However, taking into account Nixon’s recent desire to dedicate all her time to the politics and Parker’s public salary feud with Cattrall, the production of the new season of oh so beloved show might never even start.
