Canadian documentary-makers have captured the talents of Redroofs Theatre School students on film as part of a profile on its most famous former student.
Production company A+E rolled into town last week as part of a programme being prepared on the stellar career of Kate Winslet.
Winslet, recognized as a genuine Hollywood A-lister after landing starring roles in blockbusters including Titanic, spent five years learning her trade at Redroofs.
While at the school in Bath Road, Maidenhead, the actress appeared on stage in Peter Pan and Adrian Mole, before going on to play Juliet Hulme in Heavenly Creatures.
Director of Redroofs, and Winslet’s ex teacher, Carolyn Mayling said: “The children are delighted to be in the documentary.
“Knowing that Kate Winslet was a ex-pupil at Redroofs is really inspiring for them. The young girls often ask me ‘was Kate actually in this room?’.”
The documentary on Kate Winslet’s life will be aired in Canada on completion, on channel CTV.
