Hollywood star Kate Winslet was rushed to a hospital in Croatia after an accident while filming her historical drama Lee, thus temporarily halting filming. A rep for the actor said she is “doing well” and is expected to resume filming this week. It is a biographical film about Lee Miller, a major figure in World War II chronicles.
The team is reportedly in Croatia to film some key parts of the war sequence in which Kate collapses and is injured. Her representative’s statement was shared by entertainment website Deadline. It read, “Kate slipped and was taken to the hospital as a necessary precaution in production. She is doing well and will be shooting this week as planned.”
Through her now-iconic photographs, Lee Miller is credited with being one of the first to bring the atrocities of the Nazi concentration camps to the world’s attention. Kate’s 2004 film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless in Her Mind was directed by Ellen Crass, who also plays Marion Cotillard, Jude Law, Andrea Riseborough, and Josh O’Connor. Kate is also producing the film, which is set to finish shooting in December and premiere in 2023. Kate is next seen in James Cameron’s Avatar: Path of Water, in which the actor plays a Na’vi named Ronal who is described as a key figure in the ongoing story. James’ ambitious sequel to his 2009 blockbuster Avatar hits theaters in his December. This marks Kate reuniting with the filmmaker who directed perhaps his most famous performance in his 1997 classic Titanic.
