Chris Noth has been edited out of the forthcoming And Just Like That… finale amid sexual assault allegations.

The Sex And The City actor, 67, best known for his role as Mr Big in the hit TV series, was controversially killed off in the first episode of the current spin-off when he suffered a heart attack on a Peloton exercise bike.

Variety reported that a scene between Noth and Sarah Jessica Parker’s character Carrie Bradshaw has been left out of the episode due to be broadcast by HBO Max on February 3.

At the time, the show’s executive producer Michael Patrick King said the decision was “great for Carrie’s character,” whose on-off romance with Mr Big was a huge plot line in the original comedy-drama series.

News that Mr Big’s final cameo in And Just Like That… has been scrapped came weeks after four women accused Noth of sexual assault, including rape.

According to one report, Bradshaw was scheduled to be seen travelling to Pont des Arts pedestrian bridge in Paris to scatter Mr Big’s ashes into the Seine river in the season finale.

This scene was reportedly included a fantasy sequence between Mr Big and Bradshaw.

Noth has vehemently denied the allegations, saying they were “categorically false” and that the encounters were consensual.

His SATC co-stars said they were “deeply saddened” but praised the women for speaking out.

Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, who play Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte in the hit US show, acknowledged the difficulty of sharing the “painful experiences”.

“We are deeply saddened to hear the allegations against Chris Noth,” the trio posted on social media.

“We support the women who have come forward and shared their painful experiences.

“We know it must be a very difficult thing for them to do and we commend them for it.”
