Actress. Born Clare Woodgate on August 21, 1956 in Liverpool, England. Raised on Vancouver Island, BC, Cattrall returned to England at age 11 to attend the London Academy for Music and the Dramatic Arts.
While studying on scholarship at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, she was spotted by director Otto Preminger, who cast her in Rosebud in 1975.
She made several television appearances throughout the 1970s and worked mostly in movies in the 1980s. Her films ranged from a starring role opposite Jack Lemmon in 1980??s Tribute, to the lowbrow comedy of Porky??s, Police Academy and Mannequin.
In 1998, Cattrall became an international celebrity when she was cast as the scandalously promiscuous Samantha Jones in HBO??s award-winning comedy series Sex and the City.
She earned a Golden Globe for her role in 2003, the same year the show decided to call it quits, much to the disappointment of its legions of fans. The show, however, returned as an original theatrical film in 2008.
Cattrall has been married three times, to author Larry Davis, German architect Andreas Lyson and most recently to executive Mark Levison.
