Kim Cattrall would have been “fine” without ‘Sex and the City’.
The 53-year-old star – who won her role in the series about a group of four friends in New York at the age of 42 – claims that although the show turned her from a jobbing actress to a household name, she would have been happy without the success it has brought.
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.”
