SATC: 10 Minor Characters Who Stole The Show
Sex and the City was a hugely popular show throughout it six season run on the air during the ’90s and early 2000s. The show was such a hit it garnered two spin off feature films and a spin off show! Undoubtedly, the four leading ladies were the stars of the show: Carrie Bradshaw, Samantha Jones, Miranda Hobbes and Charlotte York. The show ran for quite some time and had an unbelievable amount of celebrity cameos, guest appearances and recurring roles. These minor characters might have only played a small part or just a fleeting appearance, but with their one scene they left a lasting impression and made a big mark on the show! We love watching re-runs of the show just to catch a glimpse of these amazing characters in action again. Here’s a list of 10 minor characters who appeared on Sex and the City and stole the show:
Jennifer Coolidge harnessed her comedy roots to play the character of Victoria in Sex and the City‘s season 6 episode, “The Perfect Present.” Victoria didn’t steal the show solely because she was played by a celebrity, it was also because her character was so outrageously hilarious! Victoria was supposed to be a casual friend on the verge of a breakdown after going through a break up. In an attempt to cope with her sadness she started designing handbags. The problem was these bags were hideous, but no one had the heart to tell her. Victoria throws a Purse Party and invites all her friends in a sad attempt to make some money and launch a new career. In the end Samantha ends up being the trigger that set off her emotional break down when Victoria stumbles across Samantha hooking up with one of her servers who ends up being Smith. Victoria goes off in a funny fit of rage, begins knocking racks of purses over and breaking things. It was all extremely dramatic and left us wanting more!
Samantha only ever had two serious relationships throughout the entirety of the show, and Maria was one of them. Played by Sonia Braga, Maria dated Samantha for three episodes during season 4. She was only a minor character, but she definitely made her mark on the show, not only as the woman who converted Samantha into a lesbian, but also for her behavior! Maria did her best to convert Samantha into a monogamous woman and a lesbian, but it didn’t work. Maria was a Portuguese artist who peaked Samantha’s interest for a little while, but ultimately being in a long-term relationship just wasn’t in Samantha’s character. Maria didn’t go quietly which is probably why she’s so memorable. Before she made her exit she smashed all of Samantha’s dishes in her kitchen during an argument about wanting fireworks in a relationship, so it’s safe to say fans won’t be forgetting her anytime soon!
