The actress has begun assembling staff, including two veterans of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's election team, NY1 said.

She became a household name while playing high-powered lawyer Miranda, the most ambitious character in HBO's hit series Sex and the City.

Though Nixon's rep did not comment on the conversation the actress had with political advisors Rebecca Katz and Bill Hyer, she did say that Nixon will "continue to explore" running for office, pointing out that "many concerned New Yorkers" have encouraged the run. "If and when such a decision is made, Cynthia will be sure to make her plans public".

Cynthia Nixon is reportedly considering running for governor of NY.

Last August, Nixon said on the Today show that, "There are a lot of people who would like me to run". The paper reported that she once said the Cuomo was "shortchanging the children of NY".

The politically active actress, who has been openly critical of Cuomo in recent years, would be launching a primary challenge against the incumbent Democrat.

Nixon has previously said "maybe" when asked if she's running. In January, she tweeted, "Taking our country back is going to require all of us to step up and take action - including more women, people of color, queer people, and first-generation Americans running for office".

"In this business you can't let these things bother you, otherwise you won't last long", Cuomo said.

He also downplayed questions about Nixon using consultants tied to de Blasio, his frequent political foe. Nixon has been one of the mayor's most visible supporters, and her wife, Christine Marinoni, works in his administration as a special adviser for community partnerships in the Department of Education.

Nixon has been outspoken critic of Cuomo's education policies. Zephyr Teachout garnered about 34% of the vote. However, polls indicate that he is still popular among Democratic voters in NY. Other candidates in the mix at the time were Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner and former State Legislator Terry Gipson.
