‘Sex and the City’ star Kim Cattrall withdraws from London play ‘Linda’ due to illness.

Cattrall, known for her roles in Porky’s, Big Trouble in Little China and, more recently, the television series Sex and the City, had been cast to take the title role in the Royal Court theatre’s production of Linda. It is not known what health problems have forced the star to drop out of the production, which was due to open on November 26 and is about a 55-year-old woman embarking on ambitious plans to save the world. Royal Court artistic director Vicky Featherstone said: “We are all deeply sorry that Kim is unable to continue with the production and she has our warmest wishes. “We are extremely grateful and also thrilled that Noma Dumezweni, one of our most brilliant actors, has agreed to take on this challenge at such short notice. She won a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress as Samantha in 2002 and in 2005 was ranked as number eight in US TV Guide magazine’s ‘50 Sexiest Stars of All Time’.

It was to be a familiar role for Cattrall, 59, who appeared earlier this year in Sensitive Skin, a Canadian remake of the decade-old Hugo Blick drama starring Joanna Lumley, about a successful fiftysomething with a fear of losing her youth.
