Sarah Jessica Parker’s joy at SATC sequel’s Morocco stint

London: Actress Sarah Jessica Parker says she’s glad that the shooting of ‘Sex And The City’ sequel tool place in Morocco – as none of the locals recognized the cast.

The four leading ladies shot for the film in the deserts of the African country - which doubled as Abu Dhabi in the movie - after producers failed to get filming permission from Dubai officials.

But Parker insists that they were lucky they came to Africa for their movie instead to the Middle East - because the production was completely undisturbed in Africa.

"We were in a country that had no interest in us. It was our job to stay out of their way and be respectful of their turf,” the Daily Star quoted Parker as telling the Sun.

“They were in the middle of their lives, jobs and work, so when we were in the market standing in front of their stalls it was our responsibility to integrate into their lives.

"They had little or no interest in us and it was a virtue because it allowed us to tell our story in an open environment and capture everything we wanted on screen," she added.
