Candyman in the 1992 film would return as the famous horror character in the new production
Actress Kim Catrall was born in Liverpool, England, on August 21, 1956. Today she celebrates her 65th birthday and does so amidst the controversy for not being part of the sequel to the series “Sex and the City”, in which participated for 6 seasons giving life to Samantha Jones with Sarah Jessica Parker.
Kim Victoria Cattrall is the full name of the British actress, whom she began her artistic career at age 16, when she decided to travel to New York to study at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. She has starred in a large number of films, including “Police Academy”, “Mannequin”, “Star Trek VI: That Unknown Country” and “Big Trouble in Little China”.
Kim Cattrall and the sequel to “Sex and the City”
In the famous series of the 90s and early 2000s Cattrall gave life to the oldest of the group. Her character was characterized by being the most open on the subject of her sexuality and although she is considered an indispensable part of the quartet, she will not participate in the sequel.
After the series ended in February 2004, the four friends (Carrie Bradshaw, Charlotte York, Miranda Hobbes and Samantha Jones) met again to make two films. However, rumors that Kim and Sarah Jessica had a bad relationship took hold after it was announced that a third installment of the project would not be filmed.
Why does she hate Sarah Jessica Parker?
The story of the series told the lives of four inseparable friends, but in real life things were not the same. From the first seasons a rumor began to circulate about the relationship between the protagonists, stating that Cattrall and Parker hated each other.
It all started after the first installment, when Sarah had gained a greater presence on the show and acquired the title of executive producer, which led her to raise her salary. The British woman was not so happy with the situation, as she could not understand why her partner increased her salary from time to time and how she managed to become an executive producer.
In 2004 during an interview on the show “Friday Night With”, Kim admitted that money was a problem when negotiating the contract for the seventh season. A good negotiation was what allowed the first “Sex and the City” movie to be released in 2008 and a possibility of the second opened.
In 2018, on the occasion of the death of Cattrall’s brother, the actress who played Carrie Bradshaw publicly offered her condolences to her former partner, and the response through social networks made it clear that there would be no reconciliation between them.
“Let me make this very clear (if I haven’t already). You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I am writing to tell you for the last time to stop exploiting our tragedy to make it look like you are an adorable girl.” , were the words that the British wrote to Sarah Jessica.
The final break in the relationship between the two actresses came with the cancellation of the third film, which was never recorded and many pointed to Kim as responsible. In an interview with journalist Piers Morgan, the British said: “I have to hold the people of Sex and the City responsible, especially Sarah Jessica Parker, I think she could have been nicer to me.
For his part, Parker has always denied having a conflict with the actress who played Jones, and in fact in a recent response to a fan regarding her absence in the soon-to-be released sequel explained: “No, I’ve never said that I hate Samantha. I would never say something like that. Samantha is not here because she is not part of this story that we are going to tell. But she will always be part of us no matter where we are or what we do. “
