Kate Winslet on 'Mare of Easttown,' 'Avatar 2' and Wawa

Behold, a special episode of The Times. It’s a crossover edition with our podcast colleagues at The Envelope. We’ll hear the conversation that Yvonne Villarreal, who covers television for the L.A. Times and cohosts our Envelope podcast, had with Academy Award winning actor Kate Winslet. They talk film, TV — and all about Kate’s latest starring role in the critically-acclaimed HBO series “Mare of Easttown." Going to the popular convenience store chain Wawa for research was a requirement to prepare for the role, Winslet said: "It almost felt like a mythical place." Villarreal and Winslet also discuss the long-anticipated film “Avatar 2” directed by James Cameron and how to hold your breath underwater for seven minutes.
