The world is full of so many horrible diseases, and anyone who has experienced a loved one going through Alzheimer's will agree that it is one of the most heartbreaking diseases out there. Hollywood beauty Kim Cattrall has had to go through that experience, when her father suffered from Alzheimer's disease before passing away in 2012, and Kim has admitted that it now worries her that she might develop the illness.
Cattrall told the Daily Mirror newspaper, "I’m concerned about Alzheimer’s disease. It took my father. But that’s your DNA . It’s part of life. And I’m trying not to be so fear-based. It’s a wake-up call to enjoy life, more than anything else. I want to make the most of the time that I have where I’m healthy and mobile. My mother is all there – she’s 87 and amazing."
She added, "I didn’t grow up with grandparents, so I wasn’t fortunate enough to experience the ageing process when I was young. Death still feels like a surprise when it happens, as you protect yourself on a daily basis from those catastrophic situations, which are hard to bear. So I’m trying to discover it and embrace it, when it’s happening to me."
As far as her acting career is concerned, Kim Cattrall will next appear in the new BBC adaptation of the classic Agatha Christie novel The Witness for the Prosecution, where she takes on the role of Emily French. We look forward to seeing what it has to offer.
