Kate Winslet, the actress, fell on the set of her new film Lee in Croatia and was transported to the hospital. Fortunately, the accident was minor, and the 46-year-old actor is recovering well. She is anticipated to return to the sets next week to continue filming soon.
According to photos received by the press, the actor arrived at Dubrovnik Hospital in a black vehicle, escorted by a group of individuals. Kate was examined by doctors and given an all-clear to return home.
What was Kate Winslet shooting for?
After years of speculation, Kate Winslet was cast as Lee Miller, British Vogue’s World War II correspondent under the magazine’s formidable editor-in-chief Audrey Withers, in a film directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Ellen Kuras in June 2020. According to reports, Winslet will be joined by several established and rising actors, including Marion Cotillard, Jude Law, Josh O’Connor, and Andrea Riseborough.
The highly awaited drama Lee will be based on Antony Penrose’s biography The Lives of Lee Miller, written by Miller’s son with her second husband Roland Penrose, a historian and supporter of the Surrealist movement. Miller chronicled the battle on the allied front lines and uncovered all of Hitler’s Nazi Germany’s atrocities against the Jewish population.
Kate Winslet will be back in no time
“This is not a biopic,” Winslet said of the project in 2021, according to reports. “It would take a series for HBO to tell the story of Lee’s entire life.” To make a story about Lee’s whole life, that’s a series worth for HBO. What we wanted to do was find the most interesting decade in her life, the one that defined who she was and what she became because of what she went through. It was the period from 1938-1948 that took her right through the war and her most defining time. That is the story we want people to know about Lee more than the many other parts of her life.”
According to reports, filming would begin in “spring for a late summer or early fall start,” implying a 2023 release date. Winslet will be seen next in Avatar: The Way of Water, the highly anticipated sequel to 2009’s Avatar, which will be released in theatres on December 16.
