Sensitive Skin's Kim Cattrall & Don McKellar

  • Published on Jul 25, 2014
  • This Sunday, July 20, HBO Canada is debuting the Canadian dramedy Sensitive Skin. Kim Cattrall stars in the series-marking her return to television since Sex and the City ended-as Davina, a woman of a certain age who is facing a personal crisis. Joanna Lumley had defined the role in the original BBC black comedy/drama of the same name, on which the new Canadian series is based.
    Cattrall also serves as an executive producer, along with co-star Don McKellar, who directs all six episodes; Bob Martin, who wrote the entire series; and the original show’s creator, Hugo Blick. McKellar plays Davina’s long-time husband, Al. The couple looks to shake things up by getting rid of their comfortable family home and moving to an ultra-modern condo downtown, starting a new chapter in their lives.
    Sensitive Skin is produced by Rhombus Media in association with Baby Cow Productions, The Movie Network and Movie Central. The series is distributed by Tricon Films & Television and produced in partnership with the Canada Media Fund and Rogers Cable Network Fund.
    In this video interview, Cattrall and McKellar discuss the new series and talk about embracing these two characters.

    What I like about the show is how it portrays Toronto. I know it's only fiction but it's kind of nice. Other cities should be so lucky.

    This was one of those series I had to binge watch because I couldn't stop thinking about what was going to happen to the characters next. And I loved the slo-mo openings, they added another layer of insight. Great job Kim, Don, and everyone involved!

    I am sooooo impressed with Kim Cattrell. I can always tell the signs of a truly excellent actor if they are hugely known as a particular character (Samantha Jones) but when I see them in something else, I don't think of the popular character. I saw no signs of Samantha Jones in her performance as Davina. Kudos to Kim!!!
