This site is about many things including acting, and those we have an "actor crush" on. This is when you develop a crush on someone's acting skills, think Philip Seymour Hoffman (RIP), Clifton Collins Jr., Rachel McAdams, Viola Davis, Emilia Jones (Coda) and now Kate Winslet. Kate, specifically the one in her late 40s, the one now. She's just gotten more beautiful with every day.


Update May 2024: More info about Lee including Kate being honored at the upcoming Munich Film Festival after Lee is shown. Click on the "Lee" link above.

Update April 2024: New article: 


UPDATE March 2024: I've moved all Lee articles and reviews to the new Lee menu item up top. I will add a page about HBO's The Regime soon. I have to say this: After reading so many personal experiences that Kate was an exceptional inclusive leader on set and loved to play (acting wise) with the cast, I'm gonna put it out there: I just want to play (acting wise) with Kate Winslet. OMG the fun this would be, along with being incredibly eye-opening, helpful, insightful, a dream, etc.   "“It was like being in a [theater] company the way Kate runs it, and all the actors would hang out together, and they were very funny. It was great,” the director said. Townsend agreed, noting, “One thing Kate does is she raises your game, because she sets the bar so high. So you better matchup.”


So Kate Winslet walked past me twice today (Jan. 23, 2024). I didn’t dare approach her as it was a family related gig in a small bar/pub near Oxford Street Station. I thoroughly enjoyed the band! Very young crowd, someone thought I was one of the guitarist’s mum b/c he’s Asian ??


December 16, 2022: I don't have time to update this page much, but need to highlight this interview by Joshua Horowitz that came out today that is so invigorating to watch and listen to as an actor. Beautiful and also triggering (the part about arrogance and mind games in the business of acting): 

YES PLEASE more interviews with Kate Winslet about acting, it's so helpful for actors but also for people because the best and long lasting actors are those that are also good people (I believe so much in my heart that this is true).

Also from this interview, Kate says: "I just wish there weren't quite so many comments on the physical form of actresses... You know, bodies are bodies. Everyone's beautiful however they are and whatever they came with, you know. It still drives me kind of crazy. I definitely think we can do better with that stuff."


Where have I been? Not until I binged-watched Kate Winslet's interviews on the acting PROCESS, I realized I want to do this. I want to be an actor (actress). This was BEFORE the Mare of Easttown hype. Watching her movies/shows is the best free actor's guide/education EVER. Even just looking at how she takes in the persons she's speaking with or the environment she's in. SHOULD note that it was Francis Lee's 2020 film Ammonite and then learning about the why / what / acting process from Kate interviews, that sparked something amazing and unexpected.

I am a minority: Female, Asian (Chinese), and LGBTQ+. My pronouns are she/her.

Many years ago, I had an agent. Then I really got into my day job (which I still enjoy). Enriched my life by dancing and performing on stage for years, and traveling around the world visiting my friends in different countries/cultures. Now I'm back in Calgary Canada (close to Vancouver) with the money and work flexibility to pursue this. Plus, my job as a Project Manager allows me to strategize, communicate, adjust my communication styles to suit the audience, and learn about different persons, personalities, and cultures. I'm also an experienced Toastmaster & public speaker. I love public speaking if the message is positive, educational, or funny.

I get it: It's one of the hardest jobs to do. Acting isn't about pretending; it's about being real and becoming the character using your own process that works best for you. It's not glamorous, and never perfect. I'm excited and more importantly, I'm scared but in an awesome way. And this shows my passion. I'm starting at the very beginning again. I'm female, Asian (Chinese), and LGBTQ+. Yes, I'd rather admit outright because I don't have anything and thus, I have nothing to lose. I'd rather not worry about hiding but more importantly, I don't want to do any disservice to the LGBTQ+ community or to my LGBTQ+ friends by perpetuating any type of "hidden shame". And for the record, it's very easy for me to play straight, been doing it most of my life. And people who meet me assume I'm married to a man, and have children LOL. 

Quote from Kate from 2022 International Women's Day: "Try not to be hard on yourself if you don't get a role you really wanted, just keep going." She adds, “Don’t scrutinize your appearance, it will only make you self-conscious and becomes a distraction.” The bottom line is to “enjoy it,” Winslet says. “Acting is a joy and a pleasure. Just keep enjoying what it feels like.” SIDE NOTE: It may be easier for her to say something like this, as she can have any role she wants now, since Titanic, without auditioning!;)

These are some of the amazing quotes from Kate about acting and being an actor/actress:

It is difficult, it is definitely a hard job to do and you do have to keep working at it, you do have to keep practicing things you have to allow yourself to make mistakes.

You have to keep at it, if it’s the thing you really want to do with your life you just have to keep going and keep yourself busy! Don’t wait for the phone to ring! Fill your life in other areas – the more you enrich your life, the more you will enrich your life as an actor and as a person.

  • Quote from someone else: “If you want to be a magnificent actor, aim to become a magnificent human being. If you really want to improve and be the best most interesting artist you can be, then be the best most interesting person possible.
