Kate Winslet Lived In A Beach House With Unstable Electricity By Herself
The 2020 movie Ammonite is loosely based on the life of British palaeontologist Mary Anning, who is portrayed by Kate Winslet. The movie is set in the 1840s and the character was living with her ill mother and mostly was alone. Kate Winslet didn't want to act like Mary, she wanted to become Mary, so she tried out a little bit of method acting.
She lived in a shabby house on the beach while they were shooting the film and she says, "It was so isolated, cold and rattly that when there was a big storm, the waves would hit the windows of the house and the power would go down and I would lie there thinking, 'Kate, what are you doing? Just go to the hotel with everybody else.'"
