Kate Winslet stars opposite real-life daughter in haunting Channel 4 drama



Speaking about the special, which will air on Channel 4 in December, Kate shared that she, along with the production team, wanted to tell a story that was honest and highlighted issues surrounding teenagers being online.

Touching on working with Mia, who became an actress in 2018, Kate confessed she didn’t initially think of her for playing the role of Freya.

She said: “I think because I wasn’t sort of pushing for that or trying to manipulate that in any way.

“When Dominic said to me, 'Well, who should play Freya' I suddenly went, 'Oh my gosh well Mia could definitely do it but you’d have to meet with her and you’d have to talk with her and see if you feel she could.'”
