My, Samantha – YOU’VE CHANGED!

NW - - The Big Nw Turn On! -

She’ll al­ways be Samantha to us, but Kim Cat­trall’s looking a lit­tle dif­fer­ent in her new TV role.

The ac­tress re­turns in two-part 1920s-set crime minis­eries Wit­ness For The Pros­e­cu­tion, and while she may have swapped mod­ern New York couture for an auburn, curly bob, satin gloves and di­a­monds, the crux of her beloved Sex And The City char­ac­ter is still there. Kind of!

In this lat­est take on the Agatha Christie clas­sic, Kim plays Emily French, a glam­orous Lon­don so­cialite with an ap­petite for toy­boys (sound fa­mil­iar?) who mys­te­ri­ously winds up dead.

“She had a mind of her own, she came from wealth, she mar­ried a very wealthy man who died, and she got to be one of the first women who could vote,” Kim says of her char­ac­ter.

“So I sort of found her this kind of anom­aly in 1923. She had all of these ad­van­tages, cer­tainly, but she was very alone, and she had this kind of free spirit.” Wit­ness For The Pros­e­cu­tion pre­mieres
