Kate Winslet is making headlines for her role in HBO’s Mare of Easttown.  It is one of her most unglamorous roles to date, but she is doing a great job of it. The HBO limited series follows an attempt to solve the murder of a young woman and the possibly related disappearances of two others. Kate Winslet plays the protagonist, a traumatized police detective, who pushes boundaries and breaks rules to get to the bottom of the case.

The show is set in a small Pennsylvania town whose dreary brick homes are lined up in neat rows, chimney after chimney. The series is a mix of melancholy and high drama. Mostly Mare of Easttown is highly relatable. It’s part of the charm and why it makes this series so appealing right now. There’s no smoke or mirror glamour here and a cast who also looks real, for a change.

What Kate Winslet said about looking so unglamorous

Winslet told The Times that after HBO executives saw early footage from “Mare of Easttown,” they asked the show’s creative team about her unglamorous looks. The actress explained, “HBO said, ‘Does Kate have to look so…’ And I said, ‘What, like shit? Yes. Kate does have to look like shit.’”

Quote of the week:

“Mare Sheehan is — she’s kind of disgusting,”  Kate Winslet also told IndieWire. “She’s a hot mess most of the time, she doesn’t give a shit what she looks like, she’s kind of stopped caring what people even think about her…We made decisions creatively that this was a woman who looked at herself in the mirror when she brushed her teeth in the morning and would not look in the mirror again [all day]. That’s just who she is. That’s like most busy mothers I know — that’s like me. It really is.”
