Through a variety of roles in television, film and on stage, Kristin Davis ("Charlotte York") has proven herself a talented and versatile actress.
Her role as Charlotte York for six seasons on HBO's Sex and the City earned Davis nominations for an Emmy and a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. The show also starred Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kim Cattrall, all four women winning the Screen Actors Guild Ensemble Award not once but twice. Sex and the City also won an Emmy and numerous Golden Globe Awards throughout its six seasons.
In 2006, Davis starred opposite Matthew Broderick, Danny DeVito and Kristin Chenoweth in the Fox holiday comedy Deck the Halls, directed by John Whitesell. She also starred with Tim Allen, Danny Glover and Robert Downey Jr. in the feature film update of Disney's The Shaggy Dog, directed by Brian Robbins. In 2005, she appeared with David Arquette in Robert Rodriguez's children's adventure feature, The Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl in 3-D.
In addition to film and television, Davis continues to work in the theatre. In May 2006, she made her London theatre debut, reprising her role as 'Sunny Jacobs' in The Exonerated. Davis initially joined the rotating cast of actors recounting true stories of wrongly accused and convicted death-row inmates in the critically acclaimed off-Broadway production in 2003. In 2002, Davis appeared on stage in Brave New World, a collection of poignant original works that commemorated the September 11th attacks. In Land of the Dead, written and directed by Neil LaBute, Davis starred opposite Paul Rudd as a woman who must deal with losing two loved ones on the tragic day.
Prior to Sex and the City, Davis made an impact on the television scene when she joined the pop culture phenomenon, Melrose Place, and brought life to the devious Brooke Armstrong. Her additional television credits include the Turner Network Television (TNT) original film, The Winning Season, starring as the fiancee of real-life baseball legend Honus Wagner, as well as guest-starring roles on Will & Grace, Seinfeld, Friends, ER, The Larry Sanders Show, and The Heidi Chronicles.
Born in Boulder, Colorado, Davis moved to Columbia, South Carolina when her father, a Professor of psychology, transferred to the university there. She later attended Rutgers University to complete her BFA in their classical theatre training program and upon graduation moved to New York where she began working in classical and contemporary theatre, as well as commercials.
Davis divides her time between New York and Los Angeles.
