Kate Winslet was taken to the hospital after suffering a fall while filming the historical drama “Lee” in Croatia, according to reports.

The Oscar-winning actress slipped and injured her leg while filming in the town of Kupari and was taken to the nearby Dubrovnik Hospital as a precaution, The Mirror reported.

A rep for the actress did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but told The Hollywood Reporter that Winslet “is fine and will be filming, as planned, this week.”

Winslet was cast earlier this year in the title role of “Lee,” which follows the journey of the real-life Lee Miller from a Vogue cover model in the 1920s into a World War II correspondent who covered the London Blitz, the liberation of Paris and the concentration camps at Buchenwald.

The drama centers on Miller as she travels to the frontlines of World War II as a photojournalist and embarks on a mission to expose the hidden truths of the Third Reich. But in the aftermath of betrayal, she comes to a reckoning about the truths of her own past.

Ellen Kuras, who is best known as a cinematographer on films like “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” and as a director on “Catch 22,” is directing the film from a screenplay by “The Post” and “Long Shot” writer Liz Hannah. The screenplay is adapted from the book “The Lives of Lee Miller” by Anthony Penrose, Miller’s son.

Marion Cotillard, Jude Law, Josh O’Connor and Andrea Riseborough also joined the cast of the biopic, as announced in October 2021.
