MICHAEL CLAYTON

TILDA SWINTON (Karen Crowder) started making films with the English director Derek Jarman in 1985 with "Caravaggio.” The two worked together for eight years and made seven films, including "The Last of England,” "The Garden,” "War Requiem” and "Wittgenstein,” before Jarman's death in 1994. In 1990, Swinton won the Coppa Volpe at the Venice Film Festival for her performance in Jarman's "Edward II.”

Swinton gained wider international recognition in 1992 with her extraordinary portrayal of "Orlando” under the direction of Sally Potter. Since then, her work has included Lynn Hershman-Leeson's "Conceiving Ada” and "Teknolust”; Susan Streitfeld's "Female Perversions”; Tim Roth's "The War Zone”; and Robert Lepage's "Possible Worlds.” In 2000, Swinton made "The Deep End” with David Siegel and Scott McGehee, and was honored with numerous international awards for her role, including a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress.

Swinton's more recent credits include Spike Jonze's "Adaptation,” David Mackenzie's acclaimed 2003 Cannes entry "Young Adam,” Mike Mills' "Thumbsucker,” Francis Lawrence's "Constantine” and Jim Jarmusch's "Broken Flowers.” In 2005, she starred in the role of the White Witch in Andrew Adamson's worldwide box office smash "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.” Swinton also worked with the acclaimed Hungarian director Béla Tarr in "The Man From London,” which premiered in competition at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival.

Swinton most recently finished shooting the eponymous lead in the thriller "Julia” for maverick French director Erick Zonca, and David Fincher's "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” opposite Brad Pitt. She is currently in production on Joel and Ethan Coen's "Burn After Reading,” with Pitt, George Clooney and Frances McDormand.
