The Titanic actress says her titular upcoming isn't an absolute biopic and only covers the most interesting part of the model-turned-photographer Miller. "To make a story about Lee's whole life, that's a series worth for HBO," says the Oscar-winning actor, adding, "what we wanted to do was find the most interesting decade in her life, the one that defined who she was and what she became because of what she went through."
Miller was a fashion model before she became a war correspondent for Vogue in the 1940s. Among many of the events that Miller covered through her stint as a photojournalist, her captured London Blitz, the liberation of Paris, and concentration camps at Dachau and Buchenwald remain the most notable ones.

"It was the period from 1938 to 1948 that took her right through the war and her most defining time," Winslet explains, adding, "that is the story we want people to know about Miller than many other parts of her life." Winslet, who is a recipient of multiple accolades, including an Emmy, BAFTA, Grammy, and more, is also set to star in a female-led drama anthology series called I am Ruth, alongside her daughter Mia Threapleton.
