Kate Winslet's early life
Kate is the daughter of actors Roger Winslet and Sally Bridges, so her future was linked to acting from an early age. Her parents' marriage gave rise to four children, of whom she is the second.
Although she began her studies at Redroofs School, family tradition soon made her opt for the world of acting and she wanted to try her luck on the stage. This led her to appear sporadically in commercials and comedies.
At 17, Kate made the leap to the big screen and was part of 'Heavenly Creatures', whose success led her to participate in 'Sense and Sensibility'. Thanks to this performance, she was awarded the Bafta and Screen Actors Guild Awards and was nominated for an Oscar for the first time.
