Biography


More than just a fine actress with all the accomplishment she has achieved, Kate Elizabeth Winslet indeed possesses such a rare quality behind her natural beauty. Unlike other female thespians, she is not tempted to reach the celebrity status although the door to that way had opened wide for her; instead she places more importance on her work and craft as a performer. What is more to be noticed at, she does not fall to the Hollywood's standard of physical appearance for she chooses to maintain her curvy figure rather than tries to lose her weight to have a skinny look, proving to the world that it was the value within her that matters most to this British actress.

Raised in Reading, Berkshire, England since the day she was born on October 5, 1975, Kate had received strong influence from her family that led her to the decision of becoming a professional actress at such a young age. Both of her parents, Roger and Sally Bridges-Winslet, as well as her uncle, Robert Bridges, are stage actors while her maternal grandparents, Oliver and Linda Bridges, ran the Reading Repertory Theatre, so her growth of interest in performing arts hardly could be resisted indeed. In order to pursue her dream, the 11-years-old girl then entered Redroofs Theatre School in Maidenhead, England, thus was involved in some stage productions of "Adrian Mole", "Peter Pan", "A Game of Soldiers", and "What The Butler Saw" which led to her first award nomination from the Manchester Evening News in 1994.
