Bestinau got that-
It’s Team Winslet! Actress Kate will star alongside her daughter Mia, 21, in a new TV drama… eight years after they both starred in a landmark film
- Kate Winslet stars with her daughter Mia Threapleton in Channel 4 drama I Am
- The duo star in the first full-length episode of the critically acclaimed TV series
- Miss Threapleton aspires to acting and starred in the 2020 movie Shadows
She has appeared alongside some of the biggest names in TV and film – from Leonardo DiCaprio to Ralph Fiennes.
But in the latest role of Kate Winslet, she will star in Channel 4 drama I Am along with her 21-year-old daughter.
Miss Winslet and Mia Honey Threapleton star in the first full-length episode of the critically acclaimed series.
The Dominic Savage-led female-led anthology show featured stars like Vicky McClure and Samantha Morton.

Each episode is developed by Savage in collaboration with the protagonist, for whom each story has personal resonance.
This is the first project that mother and daughter have played in a major role together.
However, Miss Threapleton had a small role in 2014’s A Little Chaos, which starred Miss Winslet.
Shooting for Miss Winslet’s episode, I Am Ruth, will begin at the end of this month.
The Oscar-winning mother of three said, “I’ve always admired Dominic’s work and especially his dedication to telling real stories.”

The I Am programs examine women’s perceptions of moments that are “emotionally raw,” Channel 4 reported.
Miss Threapleton’s father is director Jim Threapleton, to whom Miss Winslet was married from 1998 to 2001.
Miss Threapleton is following in her mother’s footsteps and has so far starred in the 2020 low-budget movie Shadows.
