Kate Winslet has worked with James Cameron as a director before. She earned an Oscar nomination for her work in Titanic, but that didn't wasn't enough to prepare her for the experience of working on the Avatar sequels. The actress had admitted that she was a little nervous when she walked onto the set of Avatar 2. Although it had been the better part of a decade since the original movie, it seems Winslet still felt like the new kid as one who has never been part of the original blockbuster. To some degree, those nerves were warranted, and Cameron helped by sharing some words of encouragement with the actress.
According to Kate Winslet, "Also, because he’s so intricately connected with that entire world because he created it, right, there’s a sort of confidence in him that sort of breeds collaboration and conversation. It was great. I remember walking into the room on the sort of the first day of rehearsal and lots of us were there all sitting around a table. And I was quite nervous because I thought, most of them had been on the first one ten years ago and all known each other forever. So I walk into the room and Jim said, ‘I just need to warn you before we go anything further. We’ve all drunk the Kool-aid so you will be speaking Navi within the next half hour.’ I was like, ‘What does he quite a sort of mean by that?’ But there’s a proper immersive experience to be found there and it was quite fascinating."
