Kim Cattrall's Liverpool Fellowship

Kim Cattrall has received an honorary fellowship from Liverpool John Moores University.

The 'Sex and the City 2' actress - who was born in the British city before moving to Canada as a child - addressed students at the university's graduation ceremony yesterday (12.07.10) at the Anglican cathedral in Liverpool, congratulating them on achieving their degrees.

She said: "This is as much about family as it is about one individual. My family is here with me today. My mother, my aunties, my cousins, my friends.

"They have given me such confidence to make me believe that I could achieve anything I wanted to if I worked hard enough and I stayed true to myself.

"To all of you graduating today, I want to offer my heartfelt congratulations - you've worked damned hard."

The 53-year-old star also encouraged people to continue learning and to maintain their roots with Liverpool - famed for producing music legends including The Beatles and Holly Johnson from band Frankie Goes to Hollywood.

She said: "I encourage you all to not stop learning. When you stop growing, you get old. May that never happen to you.

"This represents an enormous step in your lives. And after today you will be graduates of Liverpool John Moores University wherever you go in the world.

"Even if you get as far as the Wirral or Warrington, you will always have a part of Liverpool in your heart. You will never walk alone.

"I am proud of my roots in Liverpool, I feel part of this city. Thank you for bringing me home."
