• Kate Winslet's latest role is as a dictator
  • This is very unusual for her to play
  • THIS is how she prepared

Discover how Winslet's meticulous approach to her character's voice and mannerisms brings a chilling authenticity to this riveting performance.

Kate is a real pro

Hollywood's beloved star, Kate Winslet, is no stranger to challenging roles, but her latest portrayal in 'The Regime' is sending shockwaves through the industry!

The dark satire, penned by the brilliant Will Tracy of "Succession" fame, showcases Winslet as "Elena Vernham", a dictator whose grip on power in a fictional Central European nation is as precarious as it is ruthless.

In the sound booth, Winslet is a force of nature, perfecting Elena's menacing propaganda. With lines like "Even if the protests happening in Westgate were real, which they are not," she's not just acting – she's commanding! And it's not all stone-cold dictator; Winslet's laughter echoes through the studio, a reminder of the sheer talent behind the tyrant.

Winslet's choice to give "Elena" a high, tight voice is a stroke of genius. It's the sound of disconnection, of power without empathy. And then there are the quirks – a slight speech impediment, a hand to the cheek in moments of true crisis.

These are the nuances that make her Elena as unforgettable as Shakespeare's hunchbacked king.

It's clear that this role is a departure from her previous powerful characters, yet it's a testament to her range and fearlessness as an actress.
