She made her feature debut co-staring with Kristy McNichol and Tatum O'Neal in Little Darlings (1980). She made her Broadway debut as the bratty Dinah Lord in a 1980 revival of The Philadelphia Story. Alternating between film, TV and stage she did projects like the 1982 ABC-movie My Body, My Child, the features Prince of the City (1981) and I Am the Cheese (1983) and the 1982 off-Broadway productions of John Guare's Lydie Breeze. In 1985 she appeared alongside Jeff Daniels in Lanford Wilson's Lemon Sky at Second Stage Theatre.

That year's Oscar-winning Best Picture Amadeus, directed by Milos Forman, also featured her in a brief role as Mozart's tearful maid.

Sex in city

Sex and the City is a multiple Emmy Award and Golden Globe award–winning popular American cable television program. The original run of the show was broadcast on HBO from 1998 until 2004, for a total of six seasons.

Set in New York City, the show focuses on four female characters. It was considered a sitcom, but had serialized story lines as well as dramatic elements. Noted as one of, if not the most, important television shows for fashion and its industry due in large part to celebrated stylist Patricia Field, it tackled socially relevant issues, often specifically dealing with women in society in the late 1990s, and how changing roles and definitions for women affected the characters.
