SEX + The City star Kim Cattrall almost missed out on the chance to play Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe's mum - because she was too sexy to play RUDYARD KIPLING's stoic wife.
Cattrall was so desperate to play Carrie Kipling in Brian Kirk's TV period movie My Boy Jack, she gathered all her non-provocative roles on film and sent them to the director.
She explains, "I sent him Ice Princess, where I played a tough-ass skating coach, and a film of a David Mamet play I'd done in London.
"He (Kirk) admitted he'd been wrong and it turned out to be one of the happiest filming experiences I ever had."
