Ahead of the evening premiere of And Just Like That..., Nixon stopped by Live with Kelly and Ryan in the morning, where she opened up about why she embraced sporting gray hair as Miranda in the HBO Max series.

The actress said that the chief writer and director of the series, Michael Patrick King, thought the decision was appropriate.

"He was like, 'You know, a lot of women during the pandemic, they couldn't get out to the beauty parlor and they decided to go gray and then they decided that they liked it,'" Nixon said, explaining the decision behind Miranda's look.

"'So if it was going to be one of the women, we think it would be Miranda,'" she added of King's remarks.

The first two episodes of And Just Like That... are currently streaming on HBO Max.
