Kate Winslet has claimed that working on HBO miniseries Mildred Pierce was as grueling an experience as filming scenes for Titanic.

The Oscar-winning actress, who stars in the drama alongside Mare Winningham and Guy Pearce, said that the five-part project was her most challenging role since the record-breaking 1997 blockbuster.

Winslet is quoted by the Belfast Telegraph as saying: “It was like doing two-and-a-half films in 16 weeks. I think this was so much harder than any film project I’ve done since Titanic.”

Meanwhile, the show’s director Todd Haynes revealed that Winslet was the one actress he envisioned in the role: “I had never met Kate, but I could not get her out of my mind while I was reading [the book]. She was the only actress I could see playing the part.”

Co-star Evan Rachel Wood claimed that Winslet, who reportedly did not want her breasts on show in the drama, said: “She coached me through my first nude scene. I mean, she’s done it all and was literally next to the camera going [thumbs up].”

Kate Winslet is one of Britain’s most successful movie actresses, but this week the Titanic star returns to television in an epic five-part adaption of James M Cain’s novel, Mildred Pierce, on Sky Atlantic.

The drama also features former Neighbours heartthrob Guy Pearce as her new love interest Monty, and True Blood‘s Evan Rachel Wood as her snobby daughter Veda. Kate told What’s On TV what made her choose Mildred…

What attracted you to the role?
“For me the director is always a really big pull. I’ve been a fan of Todd Haynes for many years and I’d also heard many wonderful things about him from other actors who I know. I was very, very excited and flattered that someone I respected want to see me. The scripts are wonderful. I could just feel there was gravity to them as a piece and it would really be challenging for me and they’re very true to the book. Also I saw Mildred as an extraordinary mixture of vulnerability and fragility, but strength at the same time. There were many things about her that I’d never played before which I found very exciting.

“There was also size of the production, too. I wanted to get my teeth into something that’s a big script and a huge project. It’s like a five-hour movie, rather than television.”
