Chris Noth has been removed from the upcoming finale of HBO Max’s “Sex and the City” sequel series “And Just Like That".
Noth’s character,Mr. Big, was killed off in the first episode of “And Just Like That” after he suffered a heart attack while riding a Peloton. Noth was reportedly set to appear in the finale during a fantasy sequence where Carrie reunites with Big while visiting Paris’ Pont des Arts bridge to scatter his ashes.
According to reports, the creative team behind “And Just Like That” decided that the footage of Noth intended for the season finale was not narratively significant enough to justify saving it from the cutting room floor. (The series will stream its final episode of the season on Feb. 3.)
Several women have come forward over recent weeks with assault claims against Noth. The actor denied the first two accusations in December.
Following the allegations, CBS dropped Noth from his starring role on the crime series “The Equalizer.” Noth made his final appearance on the CBS series on Sunday.
