Tilda vil­lain role sim­i­lar to Ivanka

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - HISTORY -

TILDA SWIN­TON says she has un­wit­tingly ended up play­ing Don­ald Trump’s daugh­ter in her new movie.

The ac­tress, who lives in Nairn, stars as evil New York chief ex­ec­u­tive Lucy Mi­rando, who has blonde hair and a fas­ci­na­tion for cash.

But it was only af­ter shoot­ing some of the scenes for the film Okja that she saw strik­ing sim­i­lar­i­ties with ex-model Ivanka Trump, who is now a White House ad­viser.

Tilda, 56, said: “I dis­cov­ered the like­ness while watch­ing her on TV dur­ing the Repub­li­can Party con­ven­tion in 2016.

“I had al­ready es­tab­lished my char­ac­ter dur­ing the film­ing of the movie so what I saw was not an in­flu­ence.”
