The legal drama television series, "Law & Order," is an undoubtedly iconic show in the US. Since it first aired 30 years ago, the lives of its original cast, including Chris Noth, have tremendously changed.
Since the show premiered in 1990, the characters have remained iconic for fans of crime drama shows. The former cast members have continued their journey in the entertainment industry.

The show's opening introduction to every episode is memorable for fans: As reported by History, this introduction goes: "In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups: the police, who investigate crime, and the district attorneys, who prosecute the offenders. These are their stories."
The series ended in 2010. Since then, Noth, Dzundza, Moriarty, and Brooks have been involved in separate projects.
Noth starred in the "Sex and the City" movie, where he played as "Mr. Big," Carrie Bradshaw's fiancé. He was also part of the American drama series, "The Good Wife," as Governor Florrick, as reported by Closer Weekly.

Aside from movies, he appeared in TV shows such as "Jesse" and "Grey's Anatomy."
