"You`re always playing yourself. It`s all autobiography, whatever you`re doing." -- Tilda Swinton
Tilda Swinton began her acting career with British filmmaker Derek Jarman. You may recognize her as the gender-fluid title character in ORLANDO, the angel Gabriel from CONSTANTINE, or the White Witch in THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE.
She won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the film Michael Clayton in February 2008.
Tilda's not afraid to take on quirky roles, a fine example being her part in the new Korean blockbuster SNOWPIERCER. Keep your fingers crossed for a USA release sometime in 2014. And if you really want to swoon over Tilda, just wait until you see her and Tom Hiddleston playing vampire lovers in Jim Jarmusch's ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE, also due in the US in 2014.
Three of My Favorite Tilda Swinton Films
You don't have to look any further than the movies CARAVAGGIO, ORLANDO and TEKNOLUST to fall in love with Tilda Swinton's acting.
Her big debut film was CARAVAGGIO, starring opposite Nigel Terry as the titular artist, and fellow newcomer Sean Bean. She and Bean played lovers and rivals in a romantic triangle with the painter.
In , Swinton plays a young man in the court of Queen Victoria who is bade never to grow old by her majesty. So he doesn't. After a span of many lifetimes as a man, Orlando wakes up one day to discover he's become a woman. Swinton is stunning playing this character across the centuries and genders. ORLANDO
If a male-female switching Swinton wasn't enough for you, in she plays four separate characters. Her main character is Rosetta Stone, a scientist working to build forms of artificial life that are computer programs as well as living beings. Tilda then plays Rosetta's three "clones" named Ruby, Olive and Marine with the help of color coordinated outfits and wigs. TEKNOLUST
Tilda was the "dark horse" winner for Best Supporting Actress, with her performance as a corporate lawyer opposite George Clooney taking honors over the actresses who were favored more in the predictions, who included Cate Blanchett, Ellen Page and Julie Christie.
