Happy thoughts and best wishes to Kim Cattrall!
The ever-raunchy Sex And The City star was all set to perform in the titular role of Linda, a new play debuting in London next week, until health issues sidelined her from the production!
Cattrall made the announcement in a public statement, saying of her decision to leave the production:
“With great sadness and at the advice of my doctors, I will not be able to continue with the Royal Court’s production of Linda. I appreciate all the support I have received from the theatre and cannot thank them enough for allowing me to put my health first.”
The 59-year-old actress did not reveal exactly what she was dealing with in leaving the play, but Vicky Featherstone, the Royal Court Theatre‘s artistic director, gave Kim the company’s best wishes and blessings:
“We are all deeply sorry that Kim is unable to continue with the the production and she has our warmest wishes.”
Noma Dumezweni will replace the star in the lead role for the play, which is set to run in London through January 9.
In the meantime, we are thinking good thoughts — get well soon, Kim!!
