The actress, 56, was at a table read for the new series which has been in the works for years. Her co-stars will be Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, among others, but not Kim Cattrall who asked to not be in the series.

It was noted on the script that it had to be turned in at the end of the table read as producers want to keep the plot secret.

Garson played Stanford Blatch, Carrie’s greatest confidante and one of the only male characters to occasionally carry a storyline on his own.
