Swinton Thanks Jarman For Career

26 March 2010 12:01 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Tilda Swinton credits late British director Derek Jarman with helping her forge a successful acting career - because she would have quit film without his encouragement.

The pair became friends in 1985 at the casting call for his movie Caravaggio, and the Michael Clayton star is convinced the encounter changed her life.

She says, "If I hadn't met Derek, I wouldn't have carried on performing. I probably would have become a professional gambler.

"At the time, I was working the horses a bit. What he offered me was a home (in film). We didn't fit in. I knew I didn't want to be in a corset in Merchant Ivory Films."

Swinton and Jarman collaborated on a number of films together, including War Requiem and The Last of England, before his death in 1994. »
