  • Fun Faith Fact!: Nixon's first onscreen appearance was as an imposter on To Tell the Truth, where her mother worked.

Cynthia Nixon is an incredibly talented American stage and screen actress, perhaps best known for her role as Miranda Hobbes, one of the original "Fabulous Four" in HBO's Sex and the City. Her first on-screen role at age 12 soon led to feature roles, and made history her first year of college by simultaneously appearing in two hit plays on Broadway.

She's had a number of roles since her Sex and the City days, with a slight shift toward independent films, but has become an outspoken advocate for breast cancer activism and is Ambassador for Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Cynthia Nixon doesn't subscribe to any one faith or religion, but has chosen to raise her children as Jewish and is deeply connected to the Jewish community.
