As we all know that actors do various things for bringing perfection in their role and movie. The same was done by Kate Winslet. She held her breath for almost 7 minutes for her upcoming movie, which is Avatar 2. This news is told by James carton who is director of the same movie.
James Carton stated that they built a water tank, that had the capacity of 500,000 gallons of water, and it’s going to be used to capture performance under the water, on the surface of the water, and above the water. He further said “We trained our cast to free-breath-hold, because in the sequences they have to just be swimming, they can’t be on scuba, and they have to be able to do long takes. So we had a gentleman named Kirk Krack to come in and train everybody that needed to be underwater how to go underwater and how to hold their breath.” Kate Winslet trained in this and got up to a static breath hold of just about seven minutes. “It’s amazing, it’s mind over matter. You see Kate going underwater and she just felt so comfortable. There was one day, we have a tank where she was just rehearsing and testing and we have some windows into it, and I go in there and she’s just walking on the bottom [of the tank] left and right, left and right, left and right, then she sees me in the window and she just waves. I couldn’t believe it!”
This clearly shows that they were really overwhelmed by her and they really appreciated her, they were quite stunned too. Because holding breath for seven minutes is not a cup of tea and professional too will feel a lack of confidence in doing that.
This was something great and unusual from the Oscar-winning actress. She must have got some different kind of lung, this is not possible for an ordinary person to do stuff like this. Producer of the movie has recently shared some clicks from the sets of Avtar 2 and was talking about the underwater sequence. They must be feeling as lucky as they have got such an actress who can perform this kind of great stunts for them.
