Kim is currently in production on Sex and the City 2 in which she reprises her award-winning role as the infamous Samantha Jones, in Sex and the City: The Movie.

Kim has starred in a host of Hollywood blockbusters including Police Academy, Porky's, Mannequin, Masquerade, Star Trek 6: The Undiscovered Country, John Carpenter's cult classic Big Trouble in Little China (opposite Kurt Russell), Disney's The Ice Princess, and Brian De Palma's infamous Bonfire of the Vanities with Tom Hanks. Her performance as Jamie in the delightful independent feature Live Nude Girls earned her rave reviews at numerous independent film festivals. Kim stars as Monica in the comedy Meet Monica Velour (2009) written and directed by Keith Bearden.
In 2008, Kim was seen in John Boorman's The Tiger's Tail with Brendan Gleeson for Sony Classics and My Boy Jack, opposite Daniel Radcliffe and David Haig for PBS.

Kim made her London stage debut in 2005 in Sir Peter Hall's acclaimed revival of Brian Clark's, Who's Life is it Anyway? In 2007 she returned to the West End in David Mamet's The Cryptogram at the Donmar Warehouse.
In early 2010, Kim will be starring alongside Matthew Macfadyen in Private Lives, Noel Coward's comic masterpiece in the West End's Vaudeville Theatre.
An acclaimed writer, Kim has also written several books, including Sexual Intelligence which was a National Best Seller, Being a Girl: Navigating the Ups and Downs of Teenage Life; and Satisfaction: The Art of the Female Orgasm, a New York Times best seller.
In addition to her stage, screen and writing credits, Kim is the founder of Fertile Ground Productions, a Canadian-based production company.
