Sarah Jessica Parker Almost Quit SATC

"I had a wonderful life in New York. I was doing theatre and movies, had plenty of free time and regularly saw my friends - so I was in a panic when I was told that I'd need to be around for regular filming.

"No one could calm me down. I kept thinking, 'What can I do to escape?' I'd call my agent, begging, 'You have to get me out of this. I don't care what it takes. Even if I'm broke on the street, I can't do Sex And The City as a series.'" However, she's relieved she didn't act on her irrational fears, following the show's phenomenal success.

She adds, "The result, of course, is that they got me on the set for the first day and I never looked back."
