American Age Official

Kim Cattrall is paying tribute to her late mother.

The Sex and the City alum revealed in an Instagram post that her mom Shane Cattrall has died at 93, sharing a series of photos of Kim and her mom over the years—including a snap from her childhood.

“Shane Cattrall 1929 – 2022,” she wrote on Dec. 20. “Rest in peace Mum.”

Friends and followers expressed their support and condolences in the comments, including Queer as Folk reboot creator Stephen Dunn, who wrote, “sending all my love,” with British comedian Alan Carr expressing, “Sorry darling. Sending you lots of love.”

Added Canadian hockey reporter Christine Simpson, “Oh Kim. My heart goes out to you. Mums are the best.”

Kim has been open about her mom’s influence on her life, explaining how her upbringing shaped the kind of projects the actress has wanted to take on throughout her career.

“My mother’s childhood was shocking and dramatic,” she explained to The Guardian in 2019 “Her father abandoned my grandmother, leaving her in terrible poverty, struggling to bring up three children. As I’ve got older that’s inspired me to want to tell stories about real women who are not Superwoman but need extraordinary powers to survive.”
