Kim Cattrall agreed to make a cameo appearance on “And Just Like That” with the condition that costume designer Pat Field dress her in Samantha Jones’ iconic style. Cattrall also refused to film with her former co-stars and showrunner Michael Patrick King. Her scene, which involves a phone conversation with Carrie, comes with a significant payday.
Kim Cattrall demanded to have costume designer Patricia Field dress her for her cameo on “And Just Like That,” the “Sex and the City” reboot, as one of her conditions for appearing on the show.
Title: Kim Cattrall Insists on Samantha Style for “And Just Like That” Cameo
Kim Cattrall, known for her portrayal of Samantha Jones in “Sex and the City,” is finally making a cameo in the rebooted series, “And Just Like That.” However, she didn’t agree to appear without a few demands. During an appearance on “The View,” Cattrall revealed that she made it clear to HBO that she wanted the iconic Samantha style to be reflected in her appearance. As a result, she insisted on having costume designer Pat Field back on board for the project. Cattrall believed that if she were to return to the show, it had to be done in true Samantha fashion.
Pat Field, the creative genius behind the memorable fashion moments in the original series, not only agreed to dress Cattrall for her cameo, but she is also currently working on Cattrall’s new Netflix series, “Glamorous.” The reunion of these two talented individuals promises to be a treat for fans who have been eagerly anticipating Cattrall’s return. However, it’s worth noting that while Cattrall is willing to work with Field, she refused to film alongside her former co-stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis.
In the first season of “And Just Like That,” Samantha’s absence was explained by revealing that the character now resides in London and had a falling out with Carrie, who ended their professional relationship. Cattrall’s appearance is expected to bring significant attention to the show, resulting in a substantial payday for the actress. Despite this, sources indicate that Cattrall’s participation in future seasons is highly unlikely, as she feels she was treated poorly during her time on the original show.
For her cameo, Cattrall will be seen in a car engaged in a phone conversation with Carrie. HBO and Max have clarified that the original offer to Cattrall was always intended to be a phone call scene, shot separately. This arrangement was considered convenient and fitting for Samantha’s return. Although fans may speculate about Cattrall’s future involvement, it seems highly improbable that she will return for subsequent seasons.
Kim Cattrall’s insistence on capturing Samantha Jones’ iconic style in her cameo underscores her commitment to the character that made her famous. While “And Just Like That” strives to maintain the essence of the original series, it seems unlikely that fans will see Cattrall’s full-fledged return to the show. Nonetheless, her cameo is an exciting moment for viewers, and her demands for creative control have ensured that Samantha’s spirit will be brought to life once again.
