Are you wondering who Kate Winslet plays in Avatar: The Way of Water? The long-anticipated sequel added new a-list actors to its ranks, but it may be hard to tell which characters they play. It may be hard to tell because they play Na’vi, the race living on Pandora, using performance capture technology. However, while performance capture technology does a great job of making the characters look like their actors, it is still hard to tell who they are. One actor, in particular, that is hard to tell is Winslet. Here is everything you need to know about who Kate Winslet plays in Avatar: The Way of Water.

Who Does Kate Winslet Play in Avatar?


Winslet plays Ronal of the Metkayina clan (as shown in the picture above). Winslet mentioned she was so drawn to the character of Ronal due to her portrayal as a fierce pregnant woman who is not commonly represented in media. Ronal is the mate of Tonowari and the mother of Ao’nung and Tsierya. She is also shown to be pregnant with an unborn child. Here is her character profile:

  • Species: Na’vi
  • Gender: Female
  • Eye Color: Green
  • Height: 8’7″

She is the clan’s Tsahik, the spiritual leader who helps them with their spiritual relationship with their goddess Eywa. She is also the mate of Tonowari, the leader of the Metkayina clan. Ronal brings a powerful woman presence to the movie, and she often overrides or influences the decisions of her husband.
