Famed actress Tilda Swinton is known for remarkable film transformations throughout her long and successful career. However, her role in the upcoming thriller 'Susperia' may just be her best transformation yet. Swinton wears a prosthetic penis and fake balls for her role in the film.
In an interview with the New York Times, Mark Coulier, the makeup artist for the film revealed, “She did have us make a penis and balls. She had this nice, weighty set of genitalia so that she could feel it dangling between her legs, and she managed to get it out on set on a couple of occasions.”
In 'Susperia,' Swinton will play two different characters. Through artful makeup and innovative genitalia creation, the actor will truly look (and feel) the part. When asked where Swinton's prosthetic package is now, Coulier said, “Probably in a box somewhere! I should try and find it, and put it on a plaque on the wall of my workshop.”
'Susperia' comes to theaters November 2, 2018.
