Kim Cattrall and Juliette Lewis both have guest roles in the upcoming Queer As Folk.
According to EW, Cattrall has a recurring role as a Brenda, a
martini-soaked, high-society Southern debutant with trailer park roots.”
Brenda (Cattrall) is the adoptive mom of Ryan O’Connell‘s Julian, a
pop culture nerd with cerebral palsy who is more than ready for some independence.”
Juliette Lewis is Judy,
a single mom who is more of a friend than a parent to her teenager.”
(Sounds sweet and maybe semi-messy…)
Show creator Stephen Dunn, told The Hollywood Reporter,
I wrote the role for Kim. And I’ve been a huge fan of Juliette’s.
Queer as Folk never had stars. They became stars. The world is starting to understand and support and see that queer narratives are not just for queer audiences. It is a new world now where these stories are accessible in a mainstream way.
Kim and Juliette both know that a massive part of their fan base exists within the queer community. Those characters do function as a way for other people to see that there are other ways into the show. I made this show for the people who need it.
That’s what Queer as Folk has always been and that’s who it’s made for.”
