Hello, today I saw a documentary film from the 1983 "threads" on the nuclear war in the UK. Cate Blanchett was also there. It is a small role, but it certainly deserves to include this film in her filmography.

Considering Cate Blanchett started her acting career in Australia and her earliest credit listed on IMDb is 1993, I doubt she did appear in the 1983 TV production in the UK. You would need to post a video still of the person from "Threads" for proof.

There have been more than a few instances where a viewer thought a performer appeared in a movie and found out later that it was not the same person.

721985: Are you sure it was Cate Blanchett? Keep in mind that Blanchett was 15 years old and living in Australia when Threads (1984) premiered on British television, and she currently has no IMDb credits listed from before 1993.

In the discussion at, someone asked if Cate Blanchett played a newscaster in Threads and was told that it was actually Lesley Judd (citing IMDb).

It wasn't Cate Blanchett, she would have been 14 at the time. It was an English dancer/actress Lesley Judd.
