Earlier in the day, Kate admitted she was ‘blown away’ by her daughter Mia Threapleton’s ‘courage’ when they filmed I Am Ruth together. 

Kate portrays concerned mum Ruth, who tries to help her teenage daughter Freya (Mia) overcome a mental health crisis after becoming consumed by the pressures of social media.

Appearing on Lorraine on Thursday, Kate, a veteran in the film industry, said her daughter Mia didn’t need her advice and would even tell her to ‘shut up’.

The proud mother gushed that her daughter has a ‘power’ that she herself never had as a young actress as she spoke about the experience of working with Mia.

She explained: ‘As far as performance, she didn’t need me at all. There are even moments where she’d look at me and go, ‘Shut up Mum, let me do it!’

‘It was really amazing working alongside her and actually being blown away by her courage… she’s very, Very powerful.

‘I think this young generation of actors, I have to say there is a naturalism to their acting and they’re just braver,’ she added.

‘They have a voice, they speak up for themselves and they have a power that I feel I never really had.’

‘I am very very proud of [Mia], very proud of her indeed.’

The Mare of Easttown star also admitted there was ‘some overlap’ between her real-life role as Mia’s mother, and starring as her on-screen parent in the drama.

‘Naturally there was going to be some degree of overlap. We just wanted to make something that would hopefully resonate with people,’ she said.

She went on to speak about her own experiences parenting and admitted that it can be ‘very hard’ to step away and let children make their own choices.

‘It’s very, very hard to just trust that they know how to take care of themselves these days and how to care for them… just simply what to say,’ she said.

‘Sometimes you just have to leave them to it and step away, and as a parent it’s very hard.’
