    Kim Cattrall became a US citizen so she could vote in the upcoming election

    The 'Sex and the City' star - who was born in Liverpool, England, but moved to Canada when she was just three months old, before relocating to New York as a teenager to pursue acting - has revealed she flew to the Big Apple in August for the "specific reason" of becoming an America citizen to be able to submit a ballot in the Presidential Election on November 3


    During an appearance on 'Live with Kelly and Ryan' on Monday (21.09.20), Kim said: "There are 10 questions, and if you get the first six right, you pass.

    "But it wasn't an easy test, you have to study.

    "So, I passed and then I had to take the oath.

    "I was so emotional. I was verklempt. I didn't expect that reaction. The officer who sent me through, she said, 'You know, some people don't take this as seriously and I was really touched at how emotional it was for [you].'"

    The 'Filthy Rich' star is back in Vancouver now, where she is quarantining with her partner, Russell Thomas, to be near to her elderly mother Gladys.

    She said: "My mom is actually in a senior's facility.

    "So my partner Russ and I wanted to be there with her, just in case there were any issues."

    The 64-year-old actress admitted it was "pretty scary" in New York amid the coronavirus pandemic and they were "lucky to get out".

    She added: "We left in April and it was a pretty scary time in New York City at that point. We were very happy and lucky to get out.”
