Tilda Swinton, who most recently made an appearance in the sic-fi action drama “Snowpiercer” directed by Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho, took some time before dinner to answer fan questions during a Reddit Ask Me Anything (AMA) session. 

Swinton talked about her role as Mason in ‘Snowpiercer,’ a potential prequel to the Narnia films, and also her dream profession. 

One fan asked the actress about her favorite part of making “Snowpiercer,” which came out in select theaters in New York on Friday, June 27, 2014.  

“My favourite part of filming was probably making Director Bong laugh.. he kind of sniggers like a kitten..” Swinton said. 

“I was a MASSIVE fan of Bong Joon Ho’s before I met him: MEMORIES OF MURDER, THE HOST, MOTHER and even his first film BARKING DOGS NEVER BITE.. some of my favourite films of the last fifteen years.. and, Song Kang Ho is a great, proper film star in the best sense.. I would work with them on anything we could dream up together,” she said. 

When asked about her role as the Witch in the the Narnia sequels, Swinton hinted at a possible comeback of the fantasy epic. 

“I have always hoped that there would be the chance to make ‘The Magician’s Nephew’.. the prequel to ‘The Lion The Witch And The Wardrobe’ – such a fantastic story.. the creation of Narnia and the Witch driving a coach and four horses around Victorian London at breakneck speed.. but no word as yet.. let’s cross our fingers..” Swinton said. 

To top it off, Reddit user KickingPlanets then asked, “Yo girl. I was curious, if you hadn’t become an actress, what do you think you may have ended up doing for a living?”

“Professional gambler,” Swinton replied.
