Top 10: Tilda Swinton Performances

If there’s one thing Tilda Swinton has proven, it’s that she can do anything. Whether it’s tentpole blockbusters or risque indies, Swinton takes on the pressures of any genre with ease. This Oscar-winning chameleon is quite dauntless with her choices and one of the most prolific character actresses working today.

This year, she has three films set for release that demonstrate her versatility. Earlier this year, “The Souvenir” premiered to high praise for director Joanna Hogg and Swinton’s performance. Likely due in 2019 is “The Personal History of David Copperfield” in which Swinton stars in an ensemble cast. She also has a role in the zombie comedy “The Dead Don’t Die,” now in theaters.
