Chris Noth has publicly shown his support for his wife, Tara Wilson, ahead of the launch of his new play, as the couple continue to walk away from the actor’s sexual misconduct allegations.
The 67-year-old star was hit with allegations of sexual assault by two women in December 2021, which he furiously denied. Noth did, however, admit to having “consensual encounters” with the women, both of which allegedly took place while he was in a relationship with Wilson.
In the aftermath of the scandal, Noth’s wife, 39, was repeatedly photographed without her wedding ring as Page Six reported that the couple’s relationship was “hanging by a thread”.

However, Noth took to Instagram on Tuesday to show his love and support for his wife by praising her piece titled BROKEN code BIRD switch.
The Cast Away actor posed for a photo with the couple’s 14-year-old son, Orion, next to a poster for the project at the Berkshire Theater Group’s Unicorn theater in Stockbridge, Mass.
He captioned the snap: “Orion and I are so proud of Tara’s new play opening this Saturday in Stockbridge at the @berkshiretheatregroup!” Closes on July 9th – come and see this beautiful production!!! #berkshiretheatregroup’
Noth also shared a post about the play from the official Berkshire Theater Group account on his Instagram story.

“The family are over the moon with the premiere of their new play by Tara at the @berkshiretheatregroup,” he said.
The play follows “a woman portraying a black teenager accused of murder is forced to face truths about marriage, race, and the choices she made and the unspoken lies she told herself to abide by” .
The former The Equalizer actor has only been pictured with his wife a handful of times since the sexual assault allegations came to light.
Negative impact: Noth, who denied all the allegations, was kicked out of the Sex and the City reboot, and just like that… once the allegations were made public
The actor, who also shares two-year-old son Keats with Tara, was seen wearing his wedding ring as she chose to go without his.
The Hollywood star’s latest social media activity comes as the Lovelace actor continues to keep a low profile following sex allegations that left him out of the Sex and the City reboot.
Noth played John James Preston – also known as Mr. Big – in the original show Sex and the City, which ran from 1998 to 2004, and in both films, in 2008 and 2010.

Saddened: The stars of executive producers Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis said in a statement on December 20: “We are deeply saddened to hear of the allegations against Chris Noth. We support women who have come forward and shared their painful experiences. We know it must be a very difficult thing to do and we commend them for it’
His character died of a heart attack in the first episode of the reboot, which debuted in December last year.
In October, he was seen filming with Sarah Jessica Parker – who plays his wife Carrie – in Paris.
The shots were to be return scenes, but they were not used in the show’s finale.
There was also no mention of him in the documentary that followed the making of the revival’s first season.
Cut: Noth’s scheduled appearances in the And Just Like That… finale have been axed in response to allegations
In an interview with Variety’s director and executive producer, Michael Patrick King confirmed that Big was set to appear in a scene from the season finale.
However, due to the scandal, they decided to focus on the three main characters – Carrie, Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) and Charlotte York Goldenblatt (Kristin Davis) – instead.
“I wanted the show to focus on the stories of these amazing actresses and their efforts in those last 10 episodes. And I didn’t want the whole story to be about whether someone was or wasn’t. in the series,’ King said.
Noth was also fired from The Equalizer, with his character William Bishop killed off on the TUSEN series.
