Kate Winslet first appeared on camera at the age of 16, then shot the hit movie “Titanic” when she was 22. Her eldest daughter is roughly the same age – and she’s doing the same with her mom now. Mia Threbleton started acting.
Kate Winslet said on the British breakfast show “Lauren” that she is now 20 and an actress. “This is really cool,” the Titanic star said enthusiastically. Mia is currently in the Czech Republic to star in a TV series.
“She didn’t know that she was my daughter.”
Most of all, Kate Winslet is happy that Mia is named after her father. The actress has been married to director Jim Thrillton for three years. The 20-year-old daughter comes from this marriage.
“It’s great for her to have a different surname and that has been left under the radar,” said Kate Winslet. “The people who chose her didn’t know she was my daughter, and of course that was very important for their self-esteem.”
As Kate Winslet said, she “always doubted” her daughter would one day follow in her footsteps. “Then a few years ago she said she’d just give it a try.” The young actress played her first major role in 2020 in Irish thriller “Shadows”.
Mia is the eldest daughter of Kate Winslet. Three years after giving birth, the 45-year-old gave birth to her second child: Joe, who is now 17. Child number three was followed in 2013. Today Bear Blaise is seven years old.
