Rumors are circulating that HBO Max is restarting Sex and the city as a limited series, but with one big change: Kim Cattrall reportedly won’t be repeating her role as Samantha Jones. The actor responded to the news in a recent interview with Women’s Fantasy Award a podcast, saying he feels “lucky” to have the choice to move away from the character. “I am very protective [that]. It wouldn’t be good for me to do something I really didn’t want to do, ”she said.
Cattrall, 64, said she had chosen to move on Sex and the city many times over the years, but the most reactions she faced in 2017, when she was accused of being the third reason SATC the movie didn’t happen. “It’s pretty unusual to have any negative press about something I’ve been saying‘ no ’for almost a year, what I demand or about a diva,” she told Piers Morgan in an interview. “And here I really take on the task of the people I work from Sex and the city, and especially Sarah Jessica Parker, because I think she could have been prettier. “
Although Parker was adamant that there was no bad blood between her and Cattrall, the two have appeared in the headlines in the past because of their strained relationship, and Cattrall cited her negative experiences on set. Regardless, Cattrall continued Women’s Fantasy Award which she is proud of SATCis the heir and is eager to continue to push herself as an actress with challenging new roles.
“Leaving, even if it’s the only thing to do, you always feel, it’s a bit of a shame, I think. The taste of shame and you have to give it up, ”said Cattrall. “You don’t want to become that bird in a cage.”
It’s hard to imagine Sex and the city without Samantha’s wild madness, but we can be sure Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte will find a way to move on.
