In London playing a sculptor left paralyzed after an accident in "Whose Life Is It Anyway?," the global sex symbol has no desire to cut short her stage run.
"I feel like I'm home. I can't wait to get out there and tell my story every night," the 48-year-old told Reuters on Friday. "I'm very excited."
Hollywood trade newspapers have reported that Cattrall wanted the same fee as co-star Sarah Jessica Parker to appear in a feature film version of "Sex and the City," a project that has now been put on ice.
Cattrall would not be drawn on specifics, but said:
"I would still consider it (the film), yes.
"I mean everyone's scheduling would have to be put into consideration, and of course a wonderful script, and of course I think we should all be very well paid for it. We all worked very hard for six years, all of us."
English-born Cattrall said that there was more in common between her new character and Samantha Jones from "Sex and the City" than met the eye.
"I think there are very strong traits in both of these characters -- very strong, very courageous, funny, and sexy. Claire is sexy even though she can't move. Sex starts in the brain, it doesn't start anywhere else."
And despite the physical restrictions of her stage part, Cattrall said she was exhausted by the end of each show.
I think Kim is right to hold out for equal pay. It's not fair to do a movie and make SJP a millionaire more times over and you not get anything close to that. That was an ensemble show no matter who had top billing. That show only worked with the group of them.
yeah and I didn't like how the made it seem like Kim tried to sabatoge the movie when in reality it seems she just said she wasn't working for less anymore. Good for her. They can either pay her the same as SJP or not...maybe SJP needs to take a pay cut so they all can make the same money.
I definatley think Kim is right out of all my friends that watch the show samantha is all my friends favourite and she is the most entertaining - i think all the women should be payed well and equally!
