Kate Winslet may be Mia’s biggest fan. The 47-year-old Oscar winner spoke to BBC One’s Sunday with Laura Kuenssberg this week about working alongside her daughter, 22.

“Actually, I was just so blown away by her,” Winslet shared of her daughter. “I mean, she didn’t need my help at all.”

She continued: “Sometimes I could introduce her to a technical trick here and there. Just little things I picked up along the way, like changing an eye line … Little things like that, that no one teaches you. And she appreciated that stuff.”

Winslet said her daughter would declare “I’m good” and try acting alone. “And there were times when I would say, ‘Can I just one…’ ‘No, no, no, I’m good’ ” she added.

Winslet plays Ruth, a mother concerned about her daughter Freya’s mental health and social media influences.

I Am Ruth is part of the I Am drama anthology for Channel 4, produced by filmmaker Dominic Savage, and developed and co-written by both Winslet and Savage.

Winslet stated of filming with Threapleton, “”…We had the added bonus of knowing how to push each other’s buttons, which I can tell you we can do quite well and definitely lent on that resource considerably when we were filming.”

Winslet said on ITV’s Lorraine that her daughter would tell her to “stop up.”

“As far as performance, she didn’t need me at all,” she said. “There are even moments where she’d look at me and go, ‘Shut up Mum, let me do it!'”

The film’s first trailer debuted in mid-November, marking Winslet and Threapleton’s first collaboration since Threapleton started acting without anybody knowing.

“I think I knew [it] was coming, I always suspected,” Winslet previously said of Threapleton following in her footsteps. “And then a few years ago she turned around and said, ‘I’d like to give it a go.’ ”

Winslet said her daughter’s link to her was unclear when she landed Shadows in 2020.

“What’s great for her is she has a different surname, so she slipped under the radar and the people who cast her didn’t know she was my daughter and that was important for her self-esteem, of course,” Winslet said.
