has been playing the role of catty Samantha Jones in Sex and the City
for over a decade now, and the 53-year-old star, who won her role in the hit series at the age of 42, claims she would have been fine without the wildly popular show. She would have still been happy if she didn't become a household name and face. Kim Cattrall and her SATC co-star Sarah Jessica Parker.(Getty)
She said: “If it hadn’t come along I think I’d have been alright too. I’d have a really good, strong, journeyman actress career. That would have been fine.”
Kim, who plays Samantha Jones in the show and its spin-off movies, even said she didn’t take to the script when she first read it, saying she saw only a “miserable” woman and a group of people she “didn’t care” about.
Despite eventually signing on for the series, Kim admits she thought it was a “scary” thing to do. She explained: “When you sign a contract to do a series, you're effectively signing away six, possibly seven, years of your life based on 30 pages of dialogue. That's a little scary.”
