Back on the 13th of March, the US witnessed something quite unrecognizable when Kate Winslet was filming for her short series for HBO’s Mare of Easttown. Post 21 days of shooting out of 116 days everything came to a stop and she returned back to her abode in London in the countryside where she has been spending her lockdown for 5 months.
“I think it’s the unknown element of this virus — we just don’t know how it’s going to affect any given individual — I think that was what’s so terrifying,” she said. “I’m a very practical, straightforward person, and if I have to respond to an emergency, I just go into that zone.”
She also added that: “People thought I was crazy because I had been walking around [Philadelphia] wearing a mask for weeks, going into the grocery store and wiping everything down with isopropyl alcohol and wearing gloves,” she explains the time when the virus was said to be emerging in the beginning from Wuhan.
Adding to this she said: “Then all of a sudden March 13 came around, and people were like, ‘Fuck, where do I get one of those masks?’”
Her initial warning proved right and went on to say that two of her pals have been affected by Corona.
