While her tenure in both Banff and London was brief Cattrall was able to parlay her youthful good looks into several acting jobs that set the tone for her career. Her first role, in Otto Preminger's Rosebud introduced Hollywood to Cattrall. She quickly appeared in several films and the mini-series Scruples for ABC in 1980.
Cattrall's most notable role is the adventurous Samantha Jones in the smash HBO series Sex and the City which would net Cattrall both a SAG Award and a Golden Globe along with five Emmy nominations.
In 2002 Cattrall wrote a sex advice book entitled Satisfaction: The Art Of The Female Orgasm which enjoyed several weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List. Through her production company, Fertile Ground Productions, Cattrall has produced a documentary on the history of sex.
Thrice divorced Cattrall has commented that she was a "serial monogomist" and that now, in 2005, it is "time to swing!"
