Suspiria: Tilda Swinton finally admits to playing mysterious 82-year-old man

  • Tilda Swinton spent four hours in make-up to be transformed into Josef Klemperer

We saw the character in the trailer, but the production notes for Suspiria claimed that Klemperer was played by German actor Lutz Ebersdorf and came complete with a lengthy biography and headshot for the "unknown" actor.

Of course, that begs another question.

As for why she played Ebersdorf playing Klemperer, she cited a motto her grandmother lived by, and one I want to tattoo all over my body immediately: "Dull Not To". The site now redirects to Swinton's profile.

Guadagnino had always conceived Suspiria as a movie about female identity, and to cast Swinton in the only significant male role, would ensure that "there will always be this element of femininity at its core", Guadagnino said. But after the film's premiere at the Venice Film Festival, there were rumors that she also played another major character: Dr. Josef Klemperer. However, the cheekiness of the lie is that Swinton doesn't believe she was playing Dr Josef Klemperer. "She dictates the rhythm of his life in the everyday texture of his bereaved loneliness". One of them has already been put to bed, though, thanks to an article by The New York Times. Swinton also appears in the film - more recognisably - as dance instructor Madame Blanc. In fact, the striking features that have served Swinton well in other transformations were of no use as Klemperer.

And it does sound like she was having fun with it, including a request to the makeup department to make, in makeup artist Mark Coulier's words, a "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".

"Although she has a slightly androgynous look from sort of a fashion-model point of view, Tilda's got a very feminine bone structure", said Coulier, who thickened Swinton's neck with prosthetics and built her jaw out to look heavier and more masculine.

Swinton's fake penis and balls are "probably in a box somewhere", Coulier said.

To add another layer to the ruse, Swinton then created an online profile for Ebersdorf on movie database website IMDb. Yeah, us neither.That's because Mr. Ebersdorf does not exist.

The British actress, 57, is starring in horror remake Suspiria, alongside Dakota Johnson, Chloe Grace Moretz and, ostensibly, octogenarian first-time actor Lutz Ebersdorf. Or, as Swinton now admits: never asked the right question in the first place.

"My original idea was that Lutz would die during the edit, and his 'In Memoriam" be the final credit in the film'.
