Hollywood actress Kate Winslet is feeling shocked to know how shitty they have made Mare look. “Mare of Easttown” is one show which is liked by the masses. It received as many as 16 nominations during Emmy Awards 2021.
The show first hit zeitgeist at the time of a 7 episode run during Emma Awards, 2021. These awards include four acting nominations and Outstanding Limited Series.
It was Kate Winslet who received nominations in the category of best acting. As per reports, there is no conversation going on for the 2nd season.
Casey Bloys, who’s the chief of HBO programming stated that there is no confirmation regarding the second season of the show. But Winslet has a different opinion.
She told Entertainment Weekly that Brad Ingelsby who has created the series has some cool ideas in his possession about where Mare would go next.
This is what Winslet said, “At the end of shooting we were like, ‘Holy hell we can never do that again. If HBO brings up the idea of a Season 2, we all just have to say absolutely not. There’s just no way we could possibly do it,’” Winslet said. “And then there was talk, like, could there be? Especially when the show was getting such good responses… Creatively, Brad has shared some very cool ideas. We will see what happens. I also have to figure out if I can do it. Can I go through it again? It did cost me a lot emotionally to be her, and I have to figure out if I can summon it all up again and do it again.” She stated.
Winslet was quick to react right after “Mare of Easttown” finale aired, “I “would love to return” as the character. “I miss her. I really do. It’s the strangest thing. I feel like I’m in mourning. It was an absolutely wonderful role,” the Oscar winner told TV Line. “There’s something very addictive about Mare, because she’s so outrageous and lovable and brilliant and real, you know? I loved playing her.” she said.
There is something that most surprised Winslet regarding the reception of Mare. And this is what she told Entertainment Weekly that she had never expected that such an abrupt reaction would come out regarding Mare’s unkempt appearance.
She stated that Mare team willingly dressed down the character. She further stated, People have been enraptured about how shitty we made Mare look,” Winslet said. “That was very important to us creatively. We wanted to keep it real, and we were strict about it… Find the t-shirt that has a line that hits at the hip at the widest part. Don’t wear a bra, she just got up out of bed. Why would she have a bra on? Perhaps because of COVID and how much of a struggle that has been for people globally, there was something about how Mare looks that seemed to make people validated in a way. That was very, very surprising. I did not think people would be so responsive and I’m grateful in a way that we would able to do that.” the actress said.
While speaking with another news agency IndeWire, Winslet said, “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.” she said.
Currently, all the episodes of Kate Winslet’s “Mare of Easttown” are streaming live on HBO.
