Watch Kate Winslet Talk About Daughter Mia Threapleton
Kate Winslet’s daughter, Mia Honey Threapleton, is following in her mom’s footsteps. In an interview with TV presenter Lorraine Kelly on April 19, Kate shared that 20-year-old Mia is an actress currently working on a TV series in the Czech Republic. “That’s been a wonderful thing that I think I knew was coming actually,” Kate said. “I think I always suspected [she wanted to act]. And then sure enough, a couple of years ago, she turned around and said, ‘I think I’d like to give it a go.'”
“That initial job out of the gate, she slipped right under the radar and the people who cast her had absolutely no idea that she was my daughter.”
Though Mia may have inherited Kate’s acting skills, Kate explained that thanks to their different last names, many are unaware of the connection between the mother-daughter duo. “That initial job out of the gate, she slipped right under the radar and the people who cast her had absolutely no idea that she was my daughter,” Kate told Lorraine. “Of course, that was my biggest fear and most important for her self-esteem.” Kate shares Mia, who recently starred in Shadows last year, with her ex-husband and director Jim Threapleton.
Mia isn’t the only one who’s interested in the acting world. In an interview with Jimmy Kimmel back in January, Kate shared a funny anecdote about her 7-year-old son, Bear, wanting to pursue a career as an actress, just like his mom and now, sister.
