Sex and The City star Kim Cattrall to attend Jameson Dublin International Film Festival 2015
Former Sex and the City star Kim Cattrall will attend the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival to screen exclusively to Irish audiences episodes of her new Sky Arts TV series Sensitive Skin.
She will also take part in a master class at The Lir National Academy of Dramatic Art.
The actress has worked on stage, screen and TV with her role as Samantha in Sex and the City garnering her five Emmy nominations, four Golden Globes, and two Screen Actors Guild awards.
Grainne Humphreys, Festival Director, Jameson Dublin International Film Festival said, “An accomplished performer on both stage and screen, Kim Cattrall moves effortlessly between drama and comedy, with roles ranging from Cleopatra on stage to her acclaimed portrayal of Samantha in Sex and the City to her big screen work with filmmakers such as John Boorman and Roman Polanski."
The Festival will screen episodes of Sensitive Skin in Movies@Dundrum, with Kim Cattrall in attendance.
This Canadian black comedy, based on the critically acclaimed 2005 British series of the same name starring Joanna Lumley, stars Kim Cattrall as Davina, a former model and actress in the midst of a middle age crisis.
Feeling as though she is losing her zest for life, she struggles with sexual temptation and professional jealousy, while trying to cope with her fear of the future alongside her husband, Alan (Don McKellar).
Kim Cattrall has executive produced the series along with McKellar who has directed all episodes to date. Sensitive Skin will air in the UK and Ireland on Sky Arts 1 on Wednesday 1st April.
Kim Cattrall says: “I am very much looking forward to attending the Dublin International Film Festival and screening my new show 'Sensitive Skin'. I have always felt welcomed and at home during my visits and I am looking forward to the Festival.”
