Sex and The City fans collectively lost their s**t when it was announced that Kim Cattrall had finally agreed to star as Samantha Jones in And Just Like That.
After said stans collected themselves, there was one burning question that most were pondering, how the hell did HBO get Kim Cattrall to return, given that she has been locked in a savage feud with her former Sex And The City co-star Sarah Jessica Parker for yonks now.
Welp, Cattrall has finally revealed on Live TV what she needed to agree to come back as her infamous character, and TBH, it really wasn’t all that outlandish.
What did Kim Cattrall demand in order to come back as Samantha Jones?
During an appearance on the talk show The View, Cattrall said that there were a few requirements she asked for before agreeing to return for a cameo, but only shared one of them.
“It’s very interesting to get a call from the head of HBO saying, ‘What can we do?’ And I went, ‘Hmm…,’” Cattrall said. “Let me get creative and one of those things was to get Pat Field [stylist] back because I just thought that if I’m going to come back I gotta come back with that Samantha style, I gotta push it and we did.”

Field famously dressed the characters on Sex And The City, but notably didn’t return for the reboot.
“The main reason was a time conflict. I wasn’t able to be in New York doing that and be in Paris doing Emily in Paris,” she previously told WWD.
“But I told them to call my very dear friend Molly Rogers, who also worked in my store back in the day. She did Sex and the City with me from start to finish. She knew it well so she’s doing it. My dance card was full.”
Did Kim Cattrall film scenes with the other And Just Like That actors?
Apparently not! Charlotte York’s (Kristin Davis) hubby Harry (Evan Handler) told People that he only heard of Cattrall’s return when it was publicly announced.
“I think it [her return] is great. I do,” he said. “Apparently, [her cameo] was shot in the garage somewhere with no contact with anybody, so the only place I have to welcome her is into my living room when it airs on television.”
