Kristin Landen Davis (also listed as Kristin Lee Davis; born February 23, 1965) is an American actress. She is well known for playing the roles of Brooke Armstrong on Melrose Place (1995–1996) and Charlotte York Goldenblatt on HBO's Sex and the City (1998–2004). For her role on Sex and the City, she received an Emmy Award nomination in 2004. Her films include Deck the Halls (2006), Sex and the City: The Movie (2008), Couples Retreat (2009). and Sex and the City 2 (2010). In 2014, she made her West End debut playing Beth Gallagher in the original stage production of Fatal Attraction.
Davis has never married. In 2011, she adopted a daughter, Gemma Rose Davis. They reside in Los Angeles, California.
Davis is a recovering alcoholic. She says she was introduced to alcohol early as part of her Southern upbringing: "Alcohol freed me. I was really shy and I didn't know how to come out of my shell. I drank for the same reason I loved acting. I wanted to feel things and express myself and be free. And I'm not naturally that way." She went sober at the age of 22, later stating, "I miss it. You don't go to rehab and then suddenly it goes away."
Davis has been an ambassador for the poverty organization Oxfam since 2004.
During her 2009 visit to Africa, Davis, a lifelong lover of elephants, discovered an abandoned baby elephant and arranged for it to be taken to a wildlife rehabilitation center. In recognition of the attention she has brought to the plight of orphaned African elephants, Davis won the Humane Society's 2010 Wyler Award, which is bestowed on a celebrity or public figure who has made news on behalf of animals.
