In an industry where youth is a valuable currency, Tilda Swinton is one of the rare exemptions in the field of arts and entertainment. With her otherworldly androgynous features and magnetic presence on and offscreen, this intrepid English actress has defied all expectations from both critics and audiences considering that she is currently one of the most in-demand talents in the filmmaking business. This is impressive despite Swinton not being a much bigger household name compared to her fellow peers more than half her age.
Moving effortlessly between mainstream and arthouse projects, Swinton’s filmography reads like a dream resume for any aspiring thespian, or something that other actors would openly envy. She has starred in everything from artistic independent productions like I Am Love and Only Lovers Left Alive to major action blockbusters such as Snowpiercer and Doctor Strange. Despite her eccentric body of work, one of the most defining signatures that Swinton imparts on her films is that she always manages to fully transform herself.
