Sue Lawley's castaway is actress Kim Cattrall

Sue Lawley's castaway is actress Kim Cattrall.

Sue Lawley's castaway is the actress Kim Cattrall. Kim Cattrall became a household name in her forties as a result of playing man-eater, defiant singleton and PR mogul Samantha Jones in Sex and the City. She is about to star in the play Whose Life is it Anyway? in the West End of London.

She was born in Liverpool but grew up in Canada and decided to be an actress at a young age. She says a formative experience was appearing in a school play Piffle It's Only a Sniffle when she took the role of a cold germ which had to infect the other children by tickling them with a feather until they sneezed. She spent time in drama schools in Canada, Liverpool and New York and says now that her first love is theatre - and her film roles allow her to feed her theatre habit.

Kim Cattrall On Insomnia

Kim Cattrall reveals her private struggle with insomnia, and how it changed her life.

Kim Cattrall talks publicly for the first time about her struggle with insomnia, its impact on her life and her ability to work.

Kim Cattrall is well-known for roles in Sex and the City, Sensitive Skin, and in recent years her work in theatre. What's not been public until now is a private struggle with insomnia - something that came to dominate her life, and her work. She speaks exclusively on Woman's Hour in a narrative, based on diaries she wrote at the time that convey her state of mind when suffering sleep deprivation. Her personal battle with sleeplessness would eventually lead to her being forced to pull out of a London stage production. The process of coming to terms with insomnia involved re-examining her own life, the impact of her father's death and her own mortality. It ultimately proved life-changing.

With readings by Dame Janet Suzman.
