Actress Kate Winslet has been photographed busy at work on the set of her new film Lee following an accident last week that saw her taken to hospital.
Pictured shooting in the Croatian village of Kupari on Monday, the Oscar-winner leads the cast in the historic drama as American photojournalist Elizabeth ‘Lee’ Miller.
Kate was seen dressed in a helmet and green fatigues with dirt smeared on her arms and face as she chatted with crew, wearing a vintage-style camera and neck scarf.
At one stage, she appeared to be having her make-up and hair adjusted, while she was also seen in discussion with a fellow actor, her short blonde hair on show.
The movie is said to follow Miller’s journey from a Vogue cover model in the 1920s to a World War II correspondent who covered the London Blitz, the liberation of Paris and the concentration camps at Buchenwald.
Last week, after falling and slipping on set, the star was taken to a local hospital in Dubrovnik as a precaution required by the production, Metro.co.uk confirmed with her reps.
She has been confirmed as being ‘fine’ and was set to be filming again this week as planned.
In Lee, she is to be joined by a star-studded cast, including Jude Law, Josh O’Connor, Marion Cotillard and Andy Samberg.
It comes after Kate finished filming on James Cameron’s Avatar sequel, with the actress going to extreme lengths on production, including holding her breath for seven minutes underwater – which beat Tom Cruise’s record by over a minute.
Trying to describe what it’s like, Kate said it feels ‘just wonderful’, but did confess that when she resurfaced, she was convinced she had died.
‘God, it’s just wonderful. Your mind completely drifts off. You can’t think about anything, you can’t make lists in your head, you’re just looking at the bubbles underneath you,’ she told Observer magazine.
‘My first words [when I resurfaced] were, “Am I dead?” Yes, I thought I died.’
Filmmaker Cameron recently recalled a ‘clash’ he had with studio executives during the production of the new Avatar sequels.
As they argued for the film to be made shorter, among other things, he reminded them that ‘Titanic paid’ for the new half-billion dollar complex on the lot to settle the disagreement.
‘That’s a place where I just drew a line in the sand and said, “You know what? I made Titanic. This building that we’re meeting in right now, this new half-billion dollar complex on your lot? Titanic paid for that, so I get to do this.”‘
He later added that the studio ‘thanked’ him for the decision.
Avatar: The Way of Water is set for release on December 16, 2022.
