Kim Cattrall Introduction

Kim Victoria Cattrall (born August 21, 1956, in Widnes, England) is an English-born Canadian actress. She is well-known for her role as Samantha Jones in the HBO comedy/romance series Sex and the City, and for her leading roles in the 1980s films Police Academy and Mannequin, both of which had comedy, but not much romance (except the creepy kind where dudes do mannequins).

Kim Cattrall Life Story

Kim Cattrall was born in Widnes, a town in North Cheshire, near Liverpool. Her mother, Shane Cattrall, was a housewife; her father, Dennis Cattrall, was a builder. Cattrall has three siblings. When she was less than a year old, her family immigrated to Courtenay, British Columbia, Canada. When her grandmother became ill, she returned to England at the age of 11. During this time she took acting exams at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). Cattrall returned to Canada at age sixteen, finishing her final year of high school there. All the travel back and forth leads many to speculate which Women's World Cup team Cattrall would play for - England or Canada - if Cattrall had any iota of interest in soccer.

Cattrall began her career after graduating high school in 1972 when she left Canada for New York City. There, she attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and upon her graduation signed a five-year movie deal with director Otto Preminger,and made her film debut in Preminger's Rosebud in 1975. In Citizen Kane, "Rosebud" is a sled. There. Just saved you five bucks. A year later, Universal Studios bought out that contract and Cattrall became one of the last participants of the Universal Contract Player System. This is the one of two things she has in common with W.C.Fields. The other thing? Both have appeared nude.

During her time with Universal, she guest starred in numerous television programs of varying style and genre. In 1979 she played the role of Dr Gabrielle White in The Incredible Hulk and would go down in TV Hulk Lore as one of the few characters that knew David Banner was alive and was the creature. It was a cross her character would bear for at least a few episodes before it was canceled.

In 1982, Cattrall played Miss Honeywell in Porky's, followed two years later with a role in the original Police Academy. In 1985, she starred in three movies: Turk 182, City Limits and Hold-Up. In 1987, her lead role in Mannequin proved a huge success with audiences. One of her most well-known film roles is that of the traitor Lieutenant Valeris in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. This film would go down in history as "a pretty good way to make up for the incomprehensible trainwreck that came before it."

Aside from her film work, Cattrall is also a stage and theatre actress, with performances in Arthur Miller's A View from the Bridge and Anton Chekhov's Three Sisters (not to be confused by the adult film of the same name, directed by John T. Bone). In 1997, she was cast in Sex and the City, Darren Star's series that was broadcast on HBO and temporarily held the American female population hostage. As Samantha Jones, Cattrall gained international recognition. She capitalised on her success by appearing in steamy television commercials promoting the Pepsi product Pepsi One. She also signed a publishing deal to write a book about sex with her third husband, Mark Levinson. In addition, she can be heard reading the poetry of Rupert Brooke on the CD Red Rose Music SACD Sampler Volume One. Her recital is "breathy."

Her film work continued during Sex and the City, when she starred as Caroline in Britney Spears' first film venture, Crossroads. It would be Britney's last theatrical release, as most of her efforts now exist as mpegs on video humor sites (where you can sometimes see clips from Crossroads as it was an unintentional comedy).

In 2005, she appeared in the Disney picture Ice Princess, in which she played the character of Tina Harwood, the ice skating coach of the film's lead character. Unfortunately, Ice Princess was not a financial success. This is likely because it did not have the star power of the ice skating chimp from MVP: Most Valuable Primate. He's adorable, and has that combination of comic timing and simian pathos that so many audiences adore. She also portrayed Claire, a paralyzed woman who wants to die, in the West End drama revival of Whose Life Is It Anyway. Many were disappointed when they realized that Drew Carey and laughter were missing.
