Video: Kate Winslet's Original Titanic Screen Test

As Titanic is being released on Blu-ray today, a lot of archive material is creeping out of the cupboards. The most engaging piece I’ve seen so far is this screen test for Kate Winslet.

For the purposes of this test, Jack is being played by Jeremy Sisto, latterly of May and Law & Order. You’ll barely notice he’s there though – Winslet leaves absolutely no doubt as to why she won the part.

Winslet has recently filmed Labor Day with Jason Reitman and, all being well, will soon move onto Kenneth Branagh’s The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.

Yeah, she’s my favourite. I admit it.
