Sarah Jessica Parker was born in Nelsonville,
Ohio on March 25, 1965. Her parents divorced a year later,
and her mother later remarried. A born entertainer, she appeared
in her first television special, The Little Match Girl, when
she was eight years old.
In 1976, the family moved to New York,
where Sarah Jessica played her first Broadway role in The Innocents,
and later joined the cast of The Sound of Music. In 1979,
she became the third girl to don the red dress as the lead in Annie,
which she played for 12 months.
The move west was made in 1982, and
Sarah Jessica transferred to Hollywood High School, so she could take a
role in the CBS sitcom Square Pegs.
When Steve Martin cast her as the
bouncy, vivacious beach babe, SanDeE*, in his film L.A. Story,
the world noticed that Sarah Jessica had grown up, and since
that time, she has enjoyed many roles in film, Broadway and Off
Broadway productions, and on TV in the wildly successful series,
Sex and the City.
Currently Sarah Jessica lives
in New York with her husband, Matthew Broderick, and
their son, James.
"We're like any married couple. We're not adorable. It's just that we're both kind
of short, and that gets confused with adorability."
" But that's the great part of being an actress. It's like having illegal behavior sanctioned--I have to sleep with men on the show, and I have to smoke cigarettes on the show, and I have to wear revealing clothes. I'm so lucky."
