THE HOLIDAY

KATE WINSLET (Iris) grew up in a family of actors and began performing on British television when she was 13. At the age of 17, she became known internationally for her performance in Peter Jackson's Heavenly Creatures. She followed that in 1995 with the role of Marianne Dashwood in Ang Lee's Sense and Sensibility, and was nominated for an Academy Award® and a Golden Globe, winning the BAFTA and Screen Actors Guild awards for the role.

Winslet next co-starred with Christopher Eccleston in Michael Winterbottom's Jude, then portrayed Ophelia in Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet. She went on to appear as Rose in James Cameron's Titanic opposite Leonardo DiCaprio and at the age of 22, became the youngest actress ever to be twice nominated for an Oscar®.

In 1998, Winslet starred in Hideous Kinky for director Gillies MacKinnon and, in 1999, co-starred with Harvey Keitel in Jane Campion's comedic drama Holy Smoke. She also starred in Philip Kaufman's period drama Quills along with Geoffrey Rush, Joaquin Phoenix and Michael Caine.

Her portrayal of a young Iris Murdoch in the Richard Eyre production of Iris brought Winslet her third Oscar® nomination, as well as Golden Globe and BAFTA nominations. She next starred in Michael Apted's Enigma, a spy drama about code breakers during the early days of WWII and in The Life of David Gale with Kevin Spacey. Winslet dyed her hair blue and orange for her winning portrayal of the quirky Clementine in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, for which she received Academy Award®, Golden Globe and BAFTA nominations for Best Actress. Winslet starred opposite Johnny Depp in the Oscar®-nominated Finding Neverland, and also appeared in Romance and Cigarettes, a film musical directed by John Turturro.

She recently starred in Columbia Pictures' drama All the King's Men alongside Jude Law and Sean Penn, under the direction of Steven Zaillian, and in the drama Little Children directed by Todd Field.
