The White Witch

leave a comment »

Tilda Swinston, who plays the White Witch in the movie adaptaton of CS Lewis’ Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe:

“I wanted to shake up a kind of idea of what I see as a rather dishonorable Hollywood tradition of giving us villains who look dark, and I thought this was the one to do it with ’cause, apart from everything else, she is the White Witch. I also thought it would be particularly irresponsible at this moment for an American, globally released picture to have a villain who looked either like a Jew or an Arab.”

What can I say about this popcorn-brained comment without being really mean? OMG, ROTFL will have to suffice.
