On ‘The Reader’ set with Kate Winslet


Two things are making Kate Winslet feel weird. One is talking to the chap from The Times about the role she’s playing while she’s playing it – something she swore she would not do. The other is that, as we talk, at the back of a courtroom constructed in a town hall in suburban Berlin, a Kate Winslet lookalike is standing in for her while the camera rolls on one of her fellow actors.

This is not how Winslet likes to work. The other actor is playing a judge, and it’s vital for him to be able to react to the real her, she says. Art demands it. So does fairness – he was there for her the day before when they shot the scene from the opposite angle.
