10 Things You Didn’t Know About SATC’s Kristin Davis
Most people associate Kristin Davis with the character of Charlotte York from her longtime role on the hit series, Sex and the City. The show lasted on air from 1998 to 2004 with two spin off feature films and a fan base that continues to grow. Davis’s time on SATC was most definitely the peak of her career. She might never top its success, regardless she’s continued to hustle in the acting realm and maintain a steady career. Despite upholding a lead role on one of the most popular television series of all time, there’s still lots to know about this actress! Here’s 10 things you probably didn’t know about Kristin Davis:
10. Before She was Famous
Before she was famous, Kristin Davis waited tables at a restaurant in New York. “What can I say? I was very poor and I was a waitress, and it’s hard to be a poor waitress in New York.” There’s no denying Kristin Davis has an amazing body, and it’s most likely due to the fact that she’s an avid yogi! Not only does she practice yoga, she teaches it too! When Davis was in her twenties, she became a certified yoga teacher and taught classes in a studio to help pay the bills before she landed a solid career in acting. In an interview she said, “I started doing yoga in my 20s. I did teacher training, that was what I was going to do if acting didn’t work out…I started teaching other actors right at the beginning of the yoga craze – people still thought it was a little weird, but a lot of actors I knew were getting into it and didn’t want to look foolish in class. So I started teaching them!”
9. She’s an Advocate
Kristin is a huge advocate for women’s rights. She became a supporter of the Oxfam organization after the southeast Asia tsunami in 2004 and since then she’s been extremely active in the Oxfam community. She’s now an ambassador and spokeswoman for the human rights/relief organization and traveled to places like Mozambique, Ethiopia, Haiti, South Africa and Uganda to gain a better understanding of poverty. In 2011 she visited the Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya and continues to work with Oxfam to spread awareness and raise funds.
