Kim Victoria Cattrall (/kəˈtræl/; born 21 August 1956) is an English-Canadian actress. She is known for her role as Samantha Jones in the HBO romantic comedy series Sex and the City (1998–2004), which earned her the 2002 Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress. In 2005, TV Guide ranked her number eight on its "50 Sexiest Stars of All Time" list.

Cattrall made her film debut in Otto Preminger's 1975 film Rosebud. She went on to star in the films Porky's (1982), Police Academy (1984), Big Trouble in Little China (1986), Mannequin (1987), Masquerade (1988) and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991). She also starred in the 1986 original Broadway production of Wild Honey. For her six seasons in the TV series of Sex and the City, she received five Emmy Award nominations and four Golden Globe Award nominations. She reprised her role of Samantha Jones in the films Sex and the City (2008) and Sex and the City 2 (2010). In 2011, she returned to Broadway to star in a revival of Private Lives. Her other stage roles include Cleopatra in Antony & Cleopatra at the Liverpool Playhouse in 2010, and Alexandra Del Lago in Sweet Bird of Youth at the Old Vic, London in 2013.

Biography

Cattrall has been married three times. Her 1977 to 1979 marriage to Larry Davis was annulled. Her second marriage was from 1982 to 1989 to Andre J. Lyson; with whom she lived in Frankfurt and learned to speak German fluently, but admits she has forgotten a lot over the years.

From 1998 to 2004 she was married to audio designer and jazz bassist, Mark Levinson. The two co-wrote the 2002 book Satisfaction: The Art of the Female Orgasm.

Cattrall also has been linked with former Canadian Prime Minister, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, actor Daniel Benzali, musician Gerald Casale of the new wave group Devo, French public intellectual Bernard-Henri Lévy, and her Whose Life Is It Anyway? co-star, Alexander Siddig. She currently lives in New York and in an East Hampton, New York, waterfront home.

In 2007, Cattrall revealed that in December 1988 she had been booked on Pan Am Flight 103, the aeroplane which crashed in Lockerbie, Scotland, after a terrorist bomb was detonated during the flight. She cancelled her booking on the flight at the last minute to complete some Christmas shopping in London.

She holds dual British and Canadian citizenship. In a 2011 interview on the Canadian radio show Q, Cattrall stated that reports that she became a US citizen in 2008 are incorrect. In a 2010 interview with British journalist Sophy Grimshaw, Cattrall also stated, "It's been falsely reported on the net many times that I became an American citizen, which I have not. I love America, I love New York, but I will never give up who I am. I'm not an American."

In August 2009, Cattrall took part in the BBC One documentary series Who Do You Think You Are?, where she discovered some uncomfortable facts about her grandfather, George Baugh. Baugh, who disappeared in 1938, having abandoned his family – including Cattrall's then 8-year-old mother and two younger sisters – turned out to have bigamously married his new wife, Isabella Oliver, the following year in Tudhoe, County Durham, and subsequently had another four children. She was told that in 1961 he emigrated to Australia, where he became a postmaster, retiring in 1972 and dying in Sydney in 1974. Cattrall's mother and aunts had known nothing of their father's life after he left until they heard what the "Who Do You Think You Are?" researchers had discovered, nor had the family previously seen a clear photograph of him. An edited version of the episode was later shown as a part of the U.S. series of the same name.

Cattrall is an avid supporter of Liverpool F.

A young man meets his dream woman (and isn't the least bit troubled that she's a washed-up porn actress 30 years his senior) in this independent coming-of-age comedy. Tobe Hulbert (Dustin Ingram) is a 17-year-old high school graduate who is the working definition of a loser—he's nerdy and socially inept, he lives with his eccentric grandfather (Brian Dennehy), his closest friend, Kenny (Daniel Yelsky), is only 12 years old, and he drives a beat-up hot-dog wagon with a giant frankfurter bolted to the roof. Among his other obsessions, Tobe is fascinated with adult movies of the 1970s and '80s, and his favorite actress is Monica Velour (Kim Cattrall), who in her heyday was the hottest star in porn. When Tobe discovers there's a collector living in Indiana (Keith David) who is willing to buy his wagon for a good price and Monica Velour will be appearing at a gentleman's club nearby, he decides fate is smiling on him and hits the road. However, the "gentleman's club" turns out to be a sleazy dive and time hasn't been kind to Monica; when several patrons begin shouting insults at her, Tobe defends her honor and gets beat up for his trouble. Monica gratefully befriends Tobe and lets him stay at the trailer park she calls home; he begins to imagine he might have a chance with the woman of his dreams, but while she sees Tobe as a kindred spirit, she has bigger things to deal with, including a career that's going nowhere, an ugly relationship with her ex-husband, and a contentious battle to win back custody of her daughter.

Two scientists, Dr. Elena Kinder (Kathleen Turner) and Dr. Heep (Christopher Lloyd), use genius-baby studies to fund BabyCo's theme park "Joyworld". According to Dr. Kinder's research on toddlers/babies, babies are born possessing vast, universal knowledge and speak a secret yet impossible-to-translate baby pre-language called Babytalk. However at age 2–3, the knowledge and language are lost as the babies cross over by learning how to speak human languages. Most of the babies raised in Dr. Kinder's underground research facility were adopted from the Pasadena City orphanage, transformed into little geniuses through use of the Kinder Method, and then used in experiments to decipher this secret yet impossible-to-translate language used by the 7 baby-geniuses.
