Jessica Chastain based Dark Phoenix character on Tilda Swinton

By CelebretainmentMay 25, 2019

Jessica Chastain based her ‘Dark Phoenix’ character on Tilda Swinton.

The 42-year-old actress plays the mysterious ‘Smith’ in the ‘X-Men’ film - an “other-worldly creature” with the ability to shapeshift - and Jessica revealed that Tilda inspired her alter ego as she’s an “elevated form of a human being” that she can imagine “ruling over some planet”.

Speaking on ‘The Graham Norton Show’, she said: “I play an other-worldly creature. I was told I am not allowed to say that I play an alien, but basically I play an alien. I am a shapeshifter, so I am supposed to look like an elevated form of a human being. The one person I think of that way is Tilda Swinton. I’m not convinced she’s a human being! I think she is ruling over some planet somewhere like the goddess she is.”
