Kate Winslet has been nominated for six Academy Awards, two Emmys, and eight Golden Globe Awards, most recently for her role in “Carnage,” Roman Polanski’s big screen adaptation of the hit Broadway play, “God of Carnage.” However, there is one major acting distinction Winslet has never had—appearing on the stage.
This, however, may soon change. Winslet is apparently in talks to star in the play “Skylight,” the tale of a widowed restauranteur who meets with a mistress he carried on an affair with while his wife was still alive. Apparently, the mistress feels so overwhelmingly guilty about their dalliance that she is living in a self-imposed exile to atone for it.
The play has the promise to be a major smash.
