Quote: "You're always playing yourself. It's all autobiography, whatever you're doing. It's using them as a kind of prism through which to throw something real about yourself, or something relaxed at least. Because the last thing you want is to look like you're acting."

 

Tilda Swinton Biography

A tall, delicately beautiful, red-haired English performer, Tilda Swinton has chosen to specialize in non-mainstream films, coming to prominence as the muse of the late British director Derek Jarman. Film theoretician Peter Wollen put Swinton's ethereal, somewhat androgynous presence to good use in his directorial debut, "Friendship's Death" (1987), in which she played an alien android shipwrecked on earth. Swinton's teaming with Jarman began with his biography of Italian painter "Caravaggio" (1986), in which she played a prostitute who transforms herself in a lady, and continued through films including "The Last of England" (1987), in which she memorably sliced up a wedding gown in a windstorm with a pair of garden shears, "The Garden" (1990), as a Madonna. She brilliantly captured the icy hauteur of a woman scorned playing Queen Isabella in Jarman's "Edward II" (1991) but delivered what is probably her best (and best-known) performance as the eponymous hero-turned-heroine of Sally Potter's "Orlando" (1992). In the same film, she also doubled as the young Elizabeth I, prompting reviewers to note her resemblance to portraits of the Virgin Queen.

After a final collaboration with Jarman ("Blue" 1994), Swinton garnered critical attention as a lawyer who undergoes a personality crisis at the height of professional success in "Female Perversions" (1996) and continued in avant-garde films as the pregnant Ada Byron in "Conceiving Ada" (1997). In addition to Jarman, the actress had developed a working relationship with filmmaker John Maybury, starting with a recreation of her stage role of a woman who assumes her dead husband's identity in "Man to Man" (1992). More recently, a nearly unrecognizable Swinton reteamed with Maybury to play an acerbic lesbian in "Love Is the Devil" (1998), a film based on the life of British painter Francis Bacon.

Gradually moving into more mainstream fare, Swinton gave a brave performance as the mother in a family torn apart by incest in "The War Zone" (1999) and co-starred with Leonardo DiCaprio in "The Beach" (2000). The actress had one of her best roles as the mother of a gay son who goes to any length to protect her child after his older, abusive lover is found dead in the intriguing if not wholly satisfying "The Deep End" (2001). Later that year, Swinton offered her support to star Tom Cruise in a pivotal role in "Vanilla Sky," and in 2002 she had a brief but noticeable role as a Hollywood development executive in director Spike Jonze and writer Charlie Kaufman's "Adaptation." After a stint as a married woman drawn to a mysterious drifter (Ewan McGregor) who may be responsible for a horrific crime in the dramatic thriller "Young Adam" (2003) and a turn opposite Michael Caine in director Norman Jewison's undistinguished thriller "The Statement" (2003), Swinton's next high-profile role was as the compelling androgynous, morally complicated angel Gabriel who pities occult investigator John Constantine (Keanu Reeves) in the comic book-derived horror-action hybrid "Constantine" (2005).
