Everyday Ageism: FEMAIL columnist CHRISTA D’SOUZA questions how age will be tackled in the ‘revisited’ Sex And The City

  • Kim Cattrall, 64, refuses to have anything to do with ‘revisited’ Sex And The City
  • Christa D’Souza says it’s nothing to do with her being the oldest cast member
  • However, British columnist admits to wondering how Hollywood will tackle age

It’s the last tolerated prejudice. But Femail’s had enough. It’s time we called out those day-to-day moments when we’re patronised for no longer being young…

So Sex And The City, the TV show which first aired in 1998 is being revived. Or ‘revisited’ as Sarah Jessica Parker, its main star puts it.

The news will surely make its millions and billions of fans deliriously happy, even if it is only for a limited amount of episodes.

But if your favourite one of the four was Samantha, played by Kim Cattrall, you’ll be disappointed. She refuses to have anything to do with it.

I’m sure this has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that, at 64, Cattrall is the oldest of the original cast members (SJP and Kristin Davis are both 55; Cynthia Nixon, 54). But it makes me wonder. How will they tackle the ‘age’ thing, it being Hollywood? Will they all look exactly as they did back in the Noughties? It’s Hollywood, duh, so of course they will. In fact, they’ll probably look spookily younger, like Nicole Kidman in The Undoing.

What would be more interesting to me would be a show where they aged like normal people did and were still looking for all the things they were looking for in the original show. Cattrall should rethink her decision. Sixty-something women on the pull, now that’s an intriguing idea for a show.
