The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree for Kate Winslet’s daughter, Mia Threapleton. The mother-daughter duo stepped out on the red carpet together for the 2023 BAFTA TV Awards and looked stunningly alike in similar black dresses. The two celebrated Winslet’s win for Leading Actress in the television drama “I Am Ruth,” in which Threapleton starred alongside her mother. During Winslet’s acceptance speech, she acknowledged her daughter. “We did this together, kiddo. There were days when it was agony for [Mia] to dig as deeply as she did into this frightening, emotional territory,” per Deadline.
Winslet opened up about working with Threapleton and stated on “Sunday with Laura Kuenssberg” that she was thoroughly impressed by her daughter’s acting chops (via the Daily Mail). “I was just so blown away by her. She didn’t need my help at all. Sometimes I could show a technical trick, that I’d picked up on the way. Little things no one teaches you, and she appreciated that stuff, but when it came to the acting she’d go ‘I got it, I’m good,'” Winslet shared. The proud mom gushed, “It was really amazing working alongside her and actually being blown away by her courage … she’s very, very powerful.” While Threapleton doesn’t have that many years of acting under her belt, Winslet’s influence undoubtedly gave her the acting bug since she was just a child.
