Kim Cattrall: Could Emily in Paris be her next acting role?

People are saying Kim Cattrall could be the latest star to join the Emily in Paris cast – and we are here for it. 

The speculation comes courtesy of two rather significant people associated with the hit comedy-drama Netflix series – who, it seems, are firing out some heavy hints that they’d like the Sex and the City star, best known for playing Samantha Jones for over a decade, to join the cast as a guest star.

Let us talk you though it. First off, Darren Star, the creator of Sex and the City and now Emily in Paris, has been saying for a while that he’d like Kim to have a part in his newest series, which was Netflix’s most popular comedy series for the whole year when it first launched in 2020.

He told Variety last month: “I would love to have Kim come onto ‘Emily in Paris’ as a guest star. I would love to find something nice and juicy for her to do.”

However, he’s refusing to give in to fan theories that this character could be a “crossover” of Samantha into the Emily in Paris universe, as Samantha (in the And Just Like That plot line) has moved to London. He told the publication, in a separate interview last September: “I’m not a fan of crossovers…It’s two different universes.” 

Plus – we mean, Kim has been pretttty vocal about the fact she’s done playing Samantha – most recently telling Variety that after last reprising the role in the second Sex and the City film, “Everything in me went, ‘I’m done'”. So, if this Emily in Paris appearance ended up happening, it looks like Kim would be playing a whole new character. 

Now, here’s the latest. Emily in Paris star William Abadie, who plays Antoine – the owner of Maison Lavaux, a perfumes company, and a client of Savoir – has said in a new red carpet interview with Deadline at the Cannes Film Festival last week that he would like a “mistress” character to join the cast. 

“I need a mistress, don’t I? I think I need a mistress. Please, Mr. Star. I need a mistress. Preferably blonde, preferably British and preferably brilliant.”

We know a brilliant, blonde, British actress whom Darren has has his eye on…! Interestingly, William also has a role in And Just Like That playing Zed, Seema’s love interest.

Finally, the missing piece of the puzzle: Kim herself. Wile she’s not yet expressed an explicit desire to join the Emily in Paris cast, she has praised the show, telling Variety in a recent cover story: “I think Darren got it right with Emily in Paris. It’s a young show. It’s about young ideals. It’s about discovery.”

Oh, and then there’s the fact Kim and Darren remain pals – most recently reuniting in the red carpet for Variety‘s 2022 Power of Women event last month, where Kim was a star guest.

Ever since Kim Cattrall point blank refused to be in the Sex & The City revival, her career moves have been every bit as unpredictable as they have been fabulous – and we are so here for it. 

From her starring role in How I Met Your Father (playing the older version of Hilary Duff’s character), her stint at Brenda in the reboot LGBTQ+ drama series Queer As Folk to her upcoming film role alongside Robert De Niro in comedy About My Father, she’s taken on a diverse – and, we bet, fulfilling, range of parts.

As filming for Emily in Paris begins, let’s keep our fingers firmly crossed that she might be adding the show to her impressive list of parts.
