And the Sex and the City 2 star can't wait to don the traditional cap and gown.

She said: "I was born there and have a lot of family there. I can't wait to get into a gown and wear one of those caps. Very sexy."

Cattrall is set to spend more time in Liverpool this autumn when she stars in a production of Antony and Cleopatra in the city, and the 53-year-old star can't wait to tackle the role of the iconic Egyptian queen.

She added to the Daily Mail newspaper: "Cleopatra's such a fascinating woman to explore and I'm excited to get back to doing Shakespeare."

Kim, who traced her ancestors last year on the TV show Who Do You Think You Are?, recently revealed she feels strong ties to her Liverpool-born mother's family because of her favorite drink.

She explained: "I come from a long line of strong Scouse women. It is not just an accent, it's almost a constitution -- held together by tea. Growing up, I remember there was always a pot on the back burner, and during the filming of Who Do You Think You Are? the bonding always seemed to happen over a cup of tea."
