KATE WINSLET (Rose DeWitt Bukater) first received international
acclaim for her performance in Peter Jackson's "Heavenly
Creatures," in which she starred as a teenage girl whose
intense relationship with an equally imaginative school friend
leads to murder. Her promise was confirmed with her performance
as the impetuous Marianne in Ang Lee's "Sense and Sensibility,"
opposite Emma Thompson, for which she won a SAG and BAFTA award
for Best Supporting Actress and an Academy AwardÂ® nomination,
all in 1996.
Most recently she received universal praise for her
portrayal of the heart-rending and determined Sue Bridehead in
Michael Winterbottom's "Jude" and as the tortured Ophelia
in Kenneth Branagh's adaptation of "Hamlet." Winslet
will next star in the independent feature film "Hideous Kinky,"
filming on location in Morocco this fall.
