And Just Like That’s Initial Plans for Willie Garson’s Stanford

The one thing that King kept in the rewritten version was Stanford and Anthony’s divorce, saying, “Anthony and him were probably going to have split anyway.”

The divorce would’ve paved the way for Carrie and Stanford to restore the close friendship they had before Big came along. “But there was a series of really fun, flirty, hilarious confidante scenes with Carrie that I loved,” King shared. “That old, old, very specific chemistry that Carrie and Stanford have, which is based totally on the uniqueness of Willie and Sarah Jessica’s history.”

He added that Stanford and Anthony’s divorce would’ve been for the best as the nemeses-turned-lovers had realized they were better off as friends: “Everybody would be relieved that they were divorced.”
