Many people associate Kim Cattrall with her too hot character Samantha Jones from “Sex and the City”.

Her bright debut was noticed by the producers from Universal Studios, who invited the actress to the episode of their crime TV series “Columbo”. After that, she acted in a Canadian eco-thriller “Deadly Harvest”.
The actress Kim Cattrall had never refused to play the supportive roles that’s why her film list was becoming more extensive all the time. She appeared in two-three new projects every year.
In one of her interviews, Mrs. Cattrall confessed, that she was ready to leave the movie industry in the late 1990s. At that time the actress turned 40, and she thought that she wouldn’t get an interesting professional offer at that age.

Now Kim Cattrall remains a busy actress. Recently she had appeared on the thriller series “Tell Me a Story”. In 2020 the fans will see her as the lead actress of the series “Filthy Rich”.
