Thrones star owes it to Tilda

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - EDUCATION -

GAME OF THRONES star Gwen­do­line Christie has ad­mit­ted she owes her ca­reer to the left­field looks of Tilda Swin­ton.

The 6ft 3in ac­tress was told her ap­pear­ance was too un­con­ven­tional for her to ever suc­ceed on screen.

But in­stead of shelv­ing her am­bi­tions, she was in­spired to bat­tle on by Scots icon Tilda, whose own unique im­age has taken her to the top.

Gwen­do­line, 38, said she was made aware her striking looks could hold her back. She added: “Then I saw Tilda Swin­ton, and I watched this in­cred­i­ble woman that was so pale and so un­like the kind of Hol­ly­wood ac­tors I was used to see­ing.”
