Gone but never forgotten. Kim Cattrall paid tribute to her late brother, Chris Cattrall, with a sweet Instagram message posted on Monday, February 4, the one-year anniversary of her sibling’s untimely death. “Thinking of Chris today and everyday. We miss you. 1/2/1963 – 2/4/2018,” the 62-year-old actress captioned a throwback photo of herself with Chris.
One year ago on February 4, 2018, Kim took to social media to reveal her younger sibling had been found dead after going missing. “It is with great sadness that myself and my family announce the unexpected passing of our son and brother, Chris Cattrall. At this time we ask for privacy but we want to thank you all on social media for your outpouring of love and support in this trying time,” she wrote at the time.

Hours before Kim revealed Chris had passed away, the actress asked her social media followers for help locating her brother after he went missing. “MISSING! This is my brother Christopher Cattrall or Chris, as we call him. He has been missing since Tuesday, January 30 from his home in Lacombe, Alberta, Canada. His keys, cell phone and wallet [were] left on the table and his front door [was] unlocked. This is not like Chris,” Kim captioned a photo of her brother on Instagram.
“He would never leave his unlocked home without those items nor his seven beloved dogs. Chris is 55 years old, six feet tall, 200 pounds, [has] blue eyes, short brown hair, [a] goatee, [is of] average build and [is] usually wearing a waist-length hooded winter coat with black gloves, blue jeans and calf-high black winter boots,” she continued. “He’s a one-of-a-kind brother. Help us bring him home safe. Please spread the world. Many thanks for reading this, Kim.”
Following Chris’ death, Kim publicly thanked her Sex and the City costars for their love and support during her family’s tough time. “I would like to thank my fans, friends and my #SexAndTheCity colleagues for the outpouring of support for myself and [my] family over the past 72 hours,” the actress wrote on Twitter. Earlier, Sarah Jessica Parker wrote, “Dearest Kim, my love and condolences to you and yours and Godspeed to your beloved brother. Xx,” on Kim’s Instagram page and Cynthia Nixon similarly commented, “Hey Kim, such awful news. So sorry to hear. Sending you love. XO.”
Days later, however, Kim slammed Sarah Jessica for exploiting her brother’s death amid their ongoing feud. “I don’t need your love or support at this tragic time [Sarah Jessica Parker],” she wrote on Instagram before elaborating with, “My mom asked me today, ‘When will that [Sarah Jessica Parker], that hypocrite, leave you alone?’ Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now. Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona.”
