TILDA Swinton, a British actress, has won the Academy Awards and BAFTA awards and has been nominated twice for the Golden Globe.

In 2009, Tilda Swinton was president of the jury at the 59th Berlin Film Festival.

Swinton was born in 1960 in Dunfermline, England, to Judith Balfour, an Australian mother, to Sir John Johan Swinton, a major general, and to KCVO Sir John Swinton of Kimmerghame, Berwickshire, KCVO, Berwickshire, a Scot. TILDA Swinton attended The New School at West Heath (The same class as Diana) , went to secondary School for a while at Fettes College, and graduated from Cambridge's New School in social and political science. She received honorary doctorates from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and the University of Napier in July and August 2006, respectively.

Her Hollywood career began to take off in 2005, when she appeared in Hellboy Constantine and The Chronicles of Narnia, both commercial films, but the former's quirky, dark style was a departure, the latter was adapted from the classic Fairy Tale, through which she left a deep impression on the audience.
