Winslet’s full-fledged debut in the thriller Heavenly Creatures (1994) became a real ticket to the world of cinema for a girl who, after graduating from drama school, unsuccessfully auditioned for various directors.
The casting was long and difficult, but out of 175 applicants for the lead role in the film – Juliet Hume – New Zealand director Peter Jackson chose Kate. And I was not mistaken: the drama of the young killer was presented by the young actress in all the versatility of her character.
The plot of the picture was based on the real events of the tragedy that took place in 1952: a teenage girl Juliet Hume persuaded her friend Pauline Parker to murder her mother, who did not allow them to communicate since she saw lesbian motives in the girl’s friendship.
1996 was no less successful. Together with the famous British theater and film artist Christopher Eccleston, Kate filigree played Sue in the melodrama “Jude” (directed by Michael Winterbottom). She was extremely lucky with the next project of this year – the adaptation of “Hamlet” by Kenneth Branagh, where the actress played the role of Ophelia.
The director invited Winslet even without a trial audition. The fact is that two years earlier, Kate tried to get a role in his film Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, but actress Helena Bonham Carter bypassed her. However, the director remembered Winslet – and at the first opportunity, Kenneth invited Kate to participate in a new project.
One of the most important differences of the film “Hamlet” is the strongest cast: in addition to Kenneth himself, the famous Gerard Depardieu, Julie Christie, John Gielgud, Robin Williams. Of course, working on the same set with such eminent partners was a great honor for Kate and an excellent school of acting.
