On May 23, Jessica Chastain stopped by “Graham Norton Show” to promote her upcoming movie X-Men: Dark Phoenix. She was joined by Taylor Swift, Sophie Turner, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy.
Jessica – who had a mysterious role in the X-Men universe – let a secret about her character slip while chatting on tonight’s (May 24) Graham Norton Show.
Thankfully, the actress didn’t give the game away entirely, as she admitted to playing “an other-worldly creature”.
“I was told I am not allowed to say that I play an alien, but basically I play an alien,” she added.
Chastain also revealed the inspiration behind her take on the Dark Phoenix “alien”, explaining that Tilda Swinton is her muse for anything out-of-this-world. A solid choice.
“I am a shape shifter, so I am supposed to look like an elevated form of a human being,” Jessica said. “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.“
