“Sex And The City” Actress Kim Cattrall Holds Two Citizenships & One Is Canadian
The 63-year-old was born in the United Kingdom.
It's been almost 16 years since Sex and the City came to an end, but people still remember Kim Cattrall from her role as Samantha Jones on the hit series. One thing people often wonder about the actress though, is her nationality — is Kim Cattrall Canadian? She actually holds two different citizenships.
As it turns out, the 63-year-old actress was born on August 21, 1956, in Mossley Hill, Liverpool, meaning that her first citizenship comes from the United Kingdom.
Cattrall's father worked as a construction engineer, and her mother was a secretary. According to The Famous People, the family emigrated to the city of Courtenay, British Columbia when she was just three months old.
Although she spent much of her childhood in Canada, the actress did make a return to England at the age of 11. During this stay, she completed a series of examinations with the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.
After five years, Cattrall returned across the pond to Vancouver to complete her high school degree, which she finished back in 1972 at the age of 16.
According to her IMDb page, Cattrall was awarded a scholarship upon graduation, inviting her to study at New York's American Academy of Dramatic Arts.
Cattrall earned her film debut in her final year of school when she played the role of Joyce Donovan in Rosebud.
According to IMDb, the actress then returned back to Vancouver to appear in some theatre productions. She would later move to Toronto for work before earning a contract with Universal Pictures in Los Angeles.
Cattrall has appeared in many shows and movies throughout her career, including Charlie's Angels, Ice Princess, Producing Parker, and Tell Me a Story, just to name a few.
The actress has been married three times, has no children, and has a stunning home on Vancouver Island.
