Appearing on the chat show 'Watch What Happens Live!' last Thursday (30 April), Cynthia Nixon was asked by host Andy Cohen to suggest which 'Sex and the City' characters a variety of famous faces would be. And the results were certainly interesting: the actress was quick to name Queen Elizabeth II as Charlotte, both Oprah Winfrey and Michelle Obama as Carries, and Beyonce as Samantha.

But who does Cynthia think would make a good Miranda, the feisty lawyer she played in the popular HBO series? She reckons Hillary Clinton, Lena Dunham and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg would all be a good fit. And then there's Gandhi, who would be - who else - Mr Big, according to Cynthia.

She also reflected on her time on SATC and whether she still sees her co-stars, reports Us Weekly.

"I keep in touch with all of the women," she said, referring to Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall and Kristin Davis. "I keep in touch with Mario [Cantone]. I keep in touch with Chris Noth,", she added, referring to the actors who played Anthony Marantino and Mr Big.

Answering phone calls from viewers, Cynthia also recalled her favourite episode - the season 5 finale 'I Love a Charade', in which the girls' friend, the ambiguously gay performer Bobby Fine, marries society heiress Bitsy von Muffling.

"There was one episode that was particularly delightful to film, that I always think of when I'm asked that question, which is, the wedding of whatever their characters were named — Julie Halston and Nathan Lane in the Hamptons," Nixon explained. "It was like all of us together in this beautiful wedding setting in the country and Samantha and I dancing with the baby... Cassandra Wilson singing, I mean, it was just a gorgeous summer night. We were all there in a season finale. That was really fun."
