Kate Winslet (1975 - )

Film DeathsEdit

  • Hamlet (1996) [Ophelia]: Drowned (off-screen) in a river; her body is shown in the water afterwards, and again during her funeral.
  • Quills (2000) [Madeleine LeClerc]: Stabbed in the chest (off-screen) with scissors by Stephen Marcus in the asylum; her body is shown afterwards when Joaquin Phoenix and Billie Whitelaw discover her in a laundry vat. Later on, her body is shown again when Joaquin visits her in the morgue; this scene is revealed to be a dream sequence when Kate suddenly comes back to life and begins making love with him, only to turn back into a corpse right before Joaquin wakes up. (Nudity alert: Topless)
  • The Reader (2008) [Hanna Schmitz]: Commits suicide (off-screen) by hanging herself; we learn of her death afterwards when Ralph Fiennes gets the news. (The US DVD includes a deleted scene in which Ralph views her body in the morgue. At that point in the story, she is made up to look much older than she actually was at the time.) (Thanks to Anne and Tommy)
  • Revolutionary Road (2008) [April Wheeler]: Bleeds to death after performing a botched abortion on herself. (Thanks to Steve and Anne)
  • Contagion (2011) [Dr. Erin Mears]: Dies (off-screen) of the MEV-1 virus. Her body is shown afterwards wrapped in plastic about to be buried in a mass grave. (Thanks to Rich and Tommy)
  • Labor Day (2013) [Adele]: Shot in the head (along with Josh Brolin) by police, in a brief cutaway daydream scene when Gattlin Griffith imagines what might happen if they try to escape to Canada. (Kate and Josh survive the movie in reality.)
  • Triple 9 (2016) [Irina Vlaslov]: Killed in an explosion when Chiwetel Ejiofor detonates a bomb (hidden in his son's "birthday present") as Kate and her men drive away in their car.
