British actress Kate Winslet at 47
At the Camp Festival Shropshire, British actress Kate Winslet wowed the crowd with an outstanding performance. The 47-year-old Oscar winner read “Blueberries for Sale,” a beloved children’s book by Robert McCloskey, on Sunday at the CBBC Bedtime Story Tent in West Park.
A small girl and a bear cub go together on a summer day with her mother in search of blueberries in the tale, which was first published in 1948.
Winslet selected this book because she loved reading it as a youngster and has since enjoyed sharing it with her own children, particularly her son Bear.
The Titanic actress informed a news outlet that she went to the festival with her family.
Despite my extensive travels, my favorite destinations are England and the Camp Festival, the speaker declared.
Her appearance follows that of Hollywood celebrities who opened the CBBC Bedtime Stories schedule for the holiday season of 2017. Winslet read the book “Grumpy Corn” by Sarah McIntyre, which portrays a unicorn that wants to write the world’s most lovely story but is unable to because of writer’s block. The book celebrates teamwork and friendship.
One of Winslet’s next roles is in a biographical movie based on the life of Elizabeth “Lee” Miller, a former model who became a war correspondent. One of the 37 world premieres at the 37th Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) will be her role.
Her performance in Channel 4’s “I Am Ruth,” in which she costarred with her real-life daughter Mia Threapleton, earned her the distinction of leading actress at the recent BAFTA TV Awards.
