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.
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.
