Kim Cattrall on why she said OK to ‘And Just Like That…’ cameo


Kim Cattrall Opens Up About Her Cameo in ‘And Just Like That…’

Kim Cattrall recently shared details about her highly anticipated cameo in the series ‘And Just Like That…’ during an appearance on Wednesday’s episode of The View. Known for her iconic portrayal of Samantha Jones in the original HBO series ‘Sex and the City’ and its two movies, Cattrall spoke about her return to the show despite her longstanding feud with Sarah Jessica Parker, the star and executive producer of the series. Cattrall revealed the factors that influenced her decision to accept the cameo role.

During the interview, Cattrall discussed receiving a call from Casey Bloys, the chairman and CEO of HBO and Max Content, expressing their desire to work things out. She recalled her initial response with a grin, saying, “Hmmm… Let me get creative.” One of her requests was to bring back Patricia Field, the former costume designer of ‘SATC,’ as Cattrall wanted to reprise her role with Samantha’s distinctive style. She emphasized the need to push the boundaries and create an impactful comeback.

While Cattrall refrained from discussing her co-star or the ongoing drama, she remained tight-lipped about the storyline. However, it is known that Samantha’s return will not result in a heartfelt reunion with Carrie (played by Sarah Jessica Parker) and the other leading ladies, Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) and Charlotte (Kristin Davis). Reports indicate that Cattrall shot her scenes for the cameo without interacting with the series stars or showrunner Michael Patrick King, filming in a “garage” in New York City on March 22.

In the upcoming season, Samantha, who now resides in London, will have a phone conversation with Carrie. The previous season explained their falling out when Carrie terminated Samantha as her publicist, a plot devised after Cattrall expressed her dissatisfaction with the franchise and described her relationship with Parker as “toxic.” Although the season hinted at a possible reconciliation through text messages, the real-life history between the stars suggests a distant outcome.

The iconic fictional friend group from New York City, which captivated viewers with candid discussions on love, sex, and friendship, celebrated its 25th anniversary with a turbulent decade. The narrative evolved from friendly camaraderie to feuding, leading up to the surprising development of Cattrall’s brief return.

From the debut of ‘Sex and the City’ on June 6, 1998, the groundbreaking series based on Candace Bushnell’s newspaper column and book gained immense popularity and became part of the cultural lexicon. While the show received critical acclaim, it also attracted tabloid speculation about feuds among the stars.

After concluding its six-season run on February 22, 2004, discussions about a feature film adaptation circulated for years but faced numerous obstacles. Cattrall’s publicist denied initial reports, citing financial and scheduling issues. However, a breakthrough occurred in 2007 when the film was greenlit and went into production.

The first ‘Sex and the City’ movie released in 2008 succeeded wildly. The actresses addressed rumors of conflicts during the promotional tour, emphasizing their friendship and dedication to the project. The film’s triumph paved the way for a confirmed sequel, with Sarah Jessica Parker and Michael Patrick King envisioning a trilogy.
