Chatting to us at the New York junket for â€œGI Joe : The Rise of Cobraâ€ last weekend, star Rachel Nichols (stunning, even in sweat pants!) mentioned how keen sheâ€™d be to reprise her role as â€˜Alexa’ – The ‘Vogue Ideaâ€™ girl in the â€œSex and the Cityâ€ sequel. We promised weâ€™d get it out there – in the hope that the producers are listening!
â€˜â€™Oh my god, I would love to [make an appearance]â€, says Nichols. â€˜â€™[But] given the fact that it was on for five seasons, and I was only in one episodeâ€ itâ€™s doubtful theyâ€™d want her, she says. â€œ.. but we could keep our fingers crossedâ€.
Nichols appeared in the episode â€œA â€˜Vogueâ€™ Ideaâ€ in which Carrie presents her first free-lance article to the Vogue editors, who react completely different.
Nicholsâ€™ modelling agent in New York snagged her the role of on the popular HBO series.
â€˜â€™My modeling agent in New York was compared with a commercial agency, and I had started doing commercials as well, and they said â€˜do you want to try acting?â€™ and I said â€˜yeah why notâ€™, and they sent me on the audition for Sex & The City, which miraculously I ended up booking.
â€œAnd Iâ€™d never really done a proper audition before, I didnâ€™t know if I was supposed to look at the person reading with me, or the camera, I was really confused. And then I got on set, and was really nervous, and Kim Cattrall was so nice. I was so nervous about meeting her, because I was basically telling her at six in the morning Iâ€™d never acted before, and she could have been really not excited about it. And she was great, and I had such fun that day, that day actually made me want to pursue it more seriouslyâ€.
Ya never know Rachel!
