Kim Cattrall has swapped sleek Manhattan for gray Liverpool to accept an honorary fellowship from a university in her English home town.

The “Sex and The City” star was named a fellow of Liverpool John Moores University in northwest England on Monday in recognition of her contribution to the arts.

The 53-year-old actress was born in the English port city but was raised largely in Canada.

She told hundreds of graduating students packed into Liverpool’s Anglican cathedral that the honor was “a dream come true.”

Wearing academic cap and gown, Cattrall told the audience that she was proud of her Liverpool roots, and said “whoever said ‘you can’t go home again’ didn’t come from Liverpool.”
