KIM Cattrall, best known for playing Samantha Jones in Sex and the City, says she will “never be the same” following her brother’s tragic suicide.
The 62-year-old actress opened up about her younger brother Chris in a recent interview almost 18 months after his “unexpected passing”.
She shared: "I am different now and I will never be the same."
Speaking about the heartbreaking effects of those left behind by suicide, Kim confessed she was completely unprepared to deal with her brother's death.
She told the Mail on Sunday newspaper: "No one can prepare you. He was suffering from depression but depression is a curious thing and it can be impossible to detect if someone does not want you to know.
“Christopher was a very sweet man who was quiet about his needs and wants and that is how he died. It is unbearably sad. He left behind a lot of people who loved him.
“And when you lose someone to suicide there is always the question, 'If I could only have, if I did only, if I was only...' and it haunts you.
“And you have to learn to live with those endless questions, the endless guilt, the endless frustration every day because you are in a new reality and there is nothing you can do to change it."
Kim, who played the body-confident, sexually adventurous Sam Jones in the hit HBO series, says she takes one day at a time now in dealing with her grief.
"It breaks you. It is so hard.
“There is a whole process for you and everyone around you of picking yourself up every day, going from a bad day to having a better day and then going back again. And it goes on."
