Interesting note: Cattrall began her career before graduating from high school in 1972, when she left Canada for the United States. There, she attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and upon her graduation signed a five-year movie deal with director Otto Preminger, making her film debut in Preminger's Rosebud in 1975.

We at PIE Media Group were privileged to sit down and have a candid chat with Kim Catrall about her life and being a recent inductee into Comox Valley Walk of Achievement earlier this year.

"To Canadians, Kim Cattrall is not just the sexy sirens she plays on the screen but has also become a national icon for success, determination and drive"

"When she steps forward to receive her award as the 2012 Walk of Achievement recipient from her childhood home of Courtenay, BC the crowd erupts into applause, celebrating not only her achievements in Hollywood but also her role as a champion of the cause to financially support the arts."
