Hit TV series “Sex and the City” celebrated its 20th anniversary last week. Since it premiered on June 6, 1998, the HBO TV show set in New York City has swept the world, having considerable influence throughout the globe. The show made the four lead actresses famous, and would give rise to two feature films.

According to USA Today, the four actresses have continued to be active since the show ended in 2004. Sarah Jessica Parker, who played Carrie Bradshaw, a writer with a newspaper column, has become a fashion icon in real life — just like her character in the show. Kim Cattrall, who played public relations expert Samantha Jones, has starred in several theatrical productions in recent years.

Kristin Davis, who portrayed art dealer Charlotte York, is involved with several charity groups. Cynthia Nixon, who portrayed lawyer Miranda Hobbes, got married to her same-sex partner while becoming an LGBT rights activist. She announced in March her intention to run in the Democratic Party’s primary for governor of New York State.
