And just like that… Aidan is BACK! John Corbett films with Sarah Jessica Parker
Aidan Shaw made his big return to the Sex And The City franchise when actor John Corbett held hands with Sarah Jessica Parker while filming season two of And Just Like That… in NYC.
The 61-year-old actor looked as handsome as ever when he stepped out with Sarah, 57, who played his on-off lover Carrie Bradshaw – 13 years after he last played the lovable furniture designer in the much-ridiculed film from 2010 had played. Sex and the city 2.
John looked dapper in a black jacket and purple pants and sported longer locks as he strolled through Manhattan with SJP.
The fashionista, whose character on the series for the charming and arrogant John James Preston, aka Mr Big, famously spurned the kindly Aidan, stood out in a shirt dress and a fuchsia wrap.
SJP also wore crumpled velvet boots and a tartan jacket, with curls styled in soft waves.
John wasn’t wearing a wedding ring in the promotional photos – which seems to indicate that his character Aidan is no longer dating screenwoman Kathy.
The show’s official Instagram account shared the pictures, writing: “Shh. Do not tell anyone.’
Will she want him this time? Carrie and Aidan had a rollercoaster romance in seasons three and four – with the author cheating on him with Big and eventually turning down his proposal (season four pictured in 2002).
