Sex and the City went on for 6 consecutive seasons from 1998 to 2004. It won 8 Golden Globes, and it got two movies: one in 2008 and one in 2010. What made this series so irresistible was the storyline and the performances of its 4 actresses: Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Catrall, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis. Since I already wrote a trivia on Sarah Jessica Parker, it is time to explore more about the other 3 women, starting with the sexy blonde Kim Catrall, a.k.a Samantha of Sex and the City.

Kim Catrall’s co-star in the 80s romantic comedy Mannequin, Andrew McCathy, also got to co-star in a TV series based on a Candace Bushnell novel. Carthy’s show, Lipstick Jungle, lasted for two seasons and featured Kim Raver, Lindsay Price and Brooke Shields.

7. Catrall’s Police Academy co-star G.W. Bailey also spiced his career up with a TV series- he co-stars as the grumpy cop in The Closer- starring Kyra Sedwick.

Kim Catrall caught my attention in Big Trouble in Little China. A gorgeous actress among others, Pinar.

I have always loved Kim. I was never one for sit coms but Sex in the City was one of the exceptions for me.

@Will: I totally agree. She's gorgeous, talented and not ridiculously thin. I love that in an actress. I had seen her in other stuff, but it was with Sex and the City that I became a fan. @Jerry:Sex and the City was different. It used real locations and didn't use laughter effects. It has been one of my favorite shows.
