Nicole Ari Parker was spotted on the set of And Just Like That

Is there an "Empire" and "Sex and the City" crossover happening? Not exactly, but actor Nicole Ari Parker was spotted filming scenes for "And Just Like That," according to the Daily Mail. She was seen with stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis, and she apparently fit right in. The "Empire" alum wore a silk dress, duster and heels, topping off her look with a red necklace and suede bag, per the outlet. No doubt she earned praise from SJP!

The "SATC" women reportedly hugged her as they sat down to chat, and even though no official announcement has been made concerning her status on the show, it's "exciting news for fans." Nicole Ari Parker is arguably best known for her role as Giselle Barker on "Empire," but she has scored guest roles on "Chicago P.D." and "Younger," according to her IMDb. As for movies, she's starred in films like "Boogie Nights" and "Remember the Titans."

According to a May TVLine report, SJP and showrunner Michael Patrick King "didn't want to tell a story with all-white writers or an all-white cast" because "it's not reflective of New York." "And Just Like That" will reportedly feature three regulars who are women of color, per the outlet.
