For many years, Kim Cattrall was only featured in non-popular low-budget movies. She had graduated from a school of arts and drama then had made her first appearance in Rosebud (1975). Her career is one the list of those with really slow build ups until a sudden halt comes and everything goes on a fast forward. All of this ‘career-crawl’ changed when she was chosen to cast as the proudly promiscuous media personality in the globally recognized series Sex and the City (1998 – 2004). Cattrall started gaining international prominence from the moment she started this show.
Date of Birth: August 21, 1956
Zodiac Sign: Leo
She does not have so much TV or movie works to her name but we can agree that her name is more prominent than some who have more works to their credit. She did not just find global recognition but a fortune that she never imagined possible. Now that all these have been laid out, who are the people that mean the world to this veteran actress? Cattrall has been married thrice but does she have people to call family? Read on to get detailed answers about the celebrity actress Kim Victoria Cattrall.
George Baugh (maternal grandfather)
Year of Birth: 1908
Year of Death: 1974
Cattrall was always interested in knowing the man who abandoned her mum and aunts when they were just kids. She was privileged to eventually find out more about her maternal grandpa. He was a bigamist who left with another woman to begin a new family in the county of Durham. The search for her grandfather led her to discover she had Aussie relatives.
Shane Cattrall (nee Baugh) (mother)
Gladys worked as a secretary and at the time of her famous daughter’s birth, lived in London. Some months after the birth of her most famous child, Gladys and the rest of their family emigrated to Canada.
Dennis Cattrall (father)
Date of Birth: May 1, 1925
Date of Death: February 2, 2012 (age 87)
Zodiac Sign: Taurus
Majority of those that have seen her on the comedy show admire and adore her but for one man – her construction engineer father! All she has attracted is criticism and disapproval from her dear dad. Strange right, that’s exactly what we think but read on to hear the man out. The late Dennis Cattrall said his daughter was making a lot of movie from “lowering herself into the gutter”. He maintained that being a respect and dignity still counts for more in his book than being a rich “slut”.
All of these negative comments did not change the way the Star Trek 6 (1991) actress viewed her dad. In fact, she reasoned that he was just being a protective father and wanted her to still be respected in public. While alive, Dennis was also a great Liverpool athletic champion. This was one major reason why his ashes were scattered in Liverpool.
Cherry Kuss (elder sister from same parents)
Year of birth: 1954
Cherry is a middle-school teacher and an elder sister to the famous actress. She says one of the perks of being a sibling to Kim is the stream of hand-me-down bags and shoes. Above these girlie belongings, Cherry is extremely proud of her sister and is ever supportive. She is also a mother to two kids; Kate and Alec.
Lisa Cattrall (sister from same parents)
There is no much info about Lisa.
Chris Cattrall (brother from same parents)
Christopher is married to Morgan Xavier (she has two kids, son Karl and daugther Katie, from previous relationships).
Larry Davis (ex-husband)
Duration of Marriage: 1977 – 1979
Larry was her first husband and they were both married for just two years until their marriage was cancelled. In interview Kim said: “I was far too young to be married and that killed the first marriage”.
Andre J. Lyson (ex-husband)
Duration of Marriage: 1982 – 1989
Cattrall was married to German architect Andre for seven years, during this time; she learnt to speak German fluently. “With the second marriage, he was in Germany and I was in America for too much of the time. The distance was too great.”
Mark Levinson (ex-husband)
Duration of Marriage: 1998 – 2004
Cattrall’s marriage to jazz bassist and audio designer Mark Levinson was part of the price she had to pay for her role as Samantha Jones. She was literally never home throughout the period of their marriage and her husband got lonely and upset and he soon started competing to get her attention. As one would expect, Levinson asked for a divorce and they went their separate ways. “As for Mark our marriage was swamped by Sex And The City. I was working 16-hour days on the series” Kim explained.
Does Kim Cattrall have any kids?
The answer to this famously asked question is no. Despite not having a biological child, Kim has maintained however that she is still a parent. The Mannequin (1987) actress says there are young actors whom she mentors; she also has niece and nephews very close to her. The maternal side to a female can be expressed with one’s child and equally with them ‘nurturing’ any other human. For these reasons, she believes that she can be called a mother without having her name on the birth certificate of any child.
