Piers Morgan returns with a selection of four more in-depth interviews in which he grills celebrities about their lives and careers.
This time, in an exceptionally candid interview, the Liverpool-born actress Kim Cattrall talks to Piers and explains her reasons for turning down the role of Samantha Jones in Sex and the City 3, sharing her side of the story and revealing her relationship with the other cast members following rumoured feuds.
Kim also opens up to Piers about her three marriages, how she was forced to pull out of a West End play while suffering from crippling insomnia and her current career and life trajectory now she is in her sixties.
Kim took a number of acting lessons at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, before joining her family in Canada at age 16 to finish high school. She moved to New York City where she attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and upon graduation signed a five-year film deal with director Otto Preminger. She made her film debut in Preminger’s Rosebud in 1975, but a year later Universal Studios bought out that contract and Kim became one of the last participants in the contract player system of Universal before the system ended in 1980.
Aside from her film work in hit movies including Police Academy, Porkys and Mannequin, she is also a stage actress, with performances in Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge and Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters and Wild Honey to her credit.
Piers Morgan’s Life Stories with Kim Cattrall airs Monday 23 October 2017 from 9.00pm-10.00pm on ITV.
