Born on November 5, 1960 in London, from a high bourgeois family that has a long military tradition behind her, Tilda immediately demonstrates a nonconformist and art-inclined character: she attends exclusive schools (she was Lady Diana) and the university of Cambridge, but at the same time sympathizes with the English Communist Party and the Scottish Socialist Party, is passionate about the theater, and ends up making his way to the cinema thanks to Jarman, who elects her as his muse and has her act in all the films he directs from 1985 until his death.
