Kim Cattrall heats up the stage in new role

Thursday June 13, 2013

Kim Cattrall, 56, brought sexy back on the opening night of her new stage role in Sweet Bird of Youth at The Old Vic, directed by War Horse's Marianne Elliott.

The former Sex And The City actress plays the role of Alexandra del Lago, a failing actress who finds relief in the arms of a young gigolo, played by Broadway star Seth Numrich, 26.

The experienced actress praised her co-star in saying that he was her "equal partner" in their performance, and compared it to a game of tennis.

"I feel this way almost on every project, I feel like I have to learn how to act again. I feel that both of us were at that level and we've grown together."

"And it really is like playing a great tennis match with Nadal and Federer - he grabs the ball and throws it over in my direction and I throw it back.

"That's how it feels every night, it feels like tennis! But equal partners."

The artisitic director at The Old Vic, Kevin Spacey, personally asked Cattrall to take on the role.

Sweet Bird Of Youth runs at The Old Vic until Saturday August 31.
