We didn’t think there would be any other choice! The romance between Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big on Sex and the City was, and still is, one of TV’s most iconic love stories -played by Sarah Jessica Parker and Chris Noth.

But it’s been revealed by the show creator Darren Star, that Mr. Big was almost played by someone else! Um, what!?

“I was thinking of Alec Baldwin for Big initially,” he said. “But I met with Chris Noth and thought he was perfect.”

Well lucky it worked out that way! We can’t imagine Mr. Big being played by anyone else!

Darren added that he’d also considered a different actor to portray Carrie’s ex-fiance Aidan Shaw!!

“We initially were thinking about Aidan Quinn, but I think he wasn’t available” – so they ended up with John Corbett, thanks to his “laconic, dude-ish vibe.”

We can’t imagine Sex and the City without the Mr. Big and Aidan we all know, so it all turned out okay in the end. We can breathe again.
