Kate Winslet and her twenty-two-year-old daughter Ashmaya

“It was a really special experience…as a mother and daughter. I was given new things to respect and admire about my own child,” Kate Winslet previously told British Vogue of acting alongside her real-life first-born. “I wanted to cover areas of motherhood and being a mother that can sometimes be incredibly challenging and lonely.” The actor also revealed that “everything” was improvised: “There was no script.… Every single word that came out of our mouths, we made up on the day.”
