Sex And The City fans have questioned the character development of Miranda Hobbes in And Just Like That, and now actor Cynthia Nixon has waded in.

The SATC revival has seen all of the characters we know and love go through major changes. And hey, we wouldn't expect anything less; they're almost two decades older.

But one thing fans have struggled to get their head around is Miranda - specifically, the choices she's making in AJLT. While there's no denying it's refreshing to see a woman following her sexual desires and discovering her true self, some have questioned whether the Harvard law-grad from the SATC days would be making such rash decisions.

Would the powerhouse, no-nonsense Capricorn and her beloved husband Steve not be in marriage counselling first? Would she really be flying across the country to see Che on a whim?

Cynthia Nixon, who plays Miranda, has now spoken out to defend her decisions. "I think some people are not loving seeing these characters off-kilter, but I love that," she said during an appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show. "Whatever age you are, you haven’t figured everything out. If you think you’ve figured everything out, you're kidding yourself."

Discussing the fact Miranda is now in her 50s, she added, "You're not young anymore but you’re not old either. You still have time to make sure your life is the way you want it to be and if you’re deeply unhappy in your career choices or in your marriage you should look at it and demand more."

Good for you for sticking by her, Cynthia!
