THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA

TILDA SWINTON (Jadis, the White Witch) is the Scottish (and Cambridge-educated) actress who began making films with the English director Derek Jarman in 1985 with "Caravaggio.” She went on to work with him for eight years and seven more films before his death in 1994, including "The Last of England,” "The Garden,” "War Requiem” and "Wittgenstein.” In 1990, Swinton won the Coppa Volpe at the Venice Film Festival for her performance in Jarman's film adaptation of Marlowe's "Edward II.” Two years later, she came to wider international recognition and critical acclaim with her extraordinary portrayal of the androgynous and eternal "Orlando,” directed by Sally Potter.

Since then, Swinton's work has included two films with Lynn Hershman-Leeson, "Conceiving Ada” and "Teknolust,” Susan Streitfeld's "Female Perversions,” Tim Roth's "The War Zone” and Robert Lepage's "Possible Worlds.” In 2000, she starred in "The Deep End” for directors David Siegel and Scott McGeehee, again winning numerous international awards, including a Golden Globe® nomination for Best Actress. Recently, she co-starred in Spike Jonze's "Adaptation,” David Mackenzie's acclaimed Bete noire "Young Adam” and "Thumbsucker,” directed by Mike Mills, to be released in 2005. She reunited with Keanu Reeves in "Constantine” and co-starred with Bill Murray in Jim Jarmusch's acclaimed drama, "Broken Flowers.” Upcoming film roles include Bela Tarr's "That Man from London,” Hillary Broughr's "Stephanie Daley” and Tony Gilroy's "Michael Clayton” opposite George Clooney.
