Early and personal life
Winstone was born in Camden, North London. She is the daughter of actor Ray Winstone and his wife Elaine McCausland. She has two sisters, Lois (born 1982), who is a singer and sometime actress, and Ellie (born 2001). Jaime grew up in Enfield, North London, where she occasionally attended Enfield County School, a local state school.
Her family later moved to Roydon, Essex where she attended Burnt Mill School in Harlow, Essex before going on to study for a BTEC National Diploma in Performing Arts at the performing arts department of Harlow College, Essex. She studied briefly at drama school, before dropping out to pursue her acting career in movies such as Anuvahood and Kidulthood. She has been in a relationship with actor James Suckling since March 2015 and engaged to him since June 2022. They have one child together, a son named Raymond Suckling, who was born in February 2016.
Winstone's credits include the films Bullet Boy (2004), Daddy's Girl, Kidulthood (both 2006) and Donkey Punch (2008), the television series Murder Investigation Team, Vincent (alongside her father), Totally Frank, Goldplated and Dead Set and a short film called Love Letters. She was cast in the BBC pilot Phoo Action, but a planned series was cancelled just as filming was about to start.
Winstone sings backing vocals for her sister Lois' band. As an actress, she has appeared in the music video for The Streets' single "When You Wasn't Famous", The Twang's single "Two Lovers", and Hercules and Love Affair's single "Blind". In April 2009, she co-starred with then-boyfriend Alfie Allen in the music video for the Madness single "Dust Devil".
In March 2010, she was announced as a new patron of the East End Film Festival. Winstone stars in the Stealth Media Group-produced thriller film Manor Hunt Ball and based on the novel The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell.
