Sometimes, when I’ve been in America and I go home, it’s so green that I have to literally rub my eyes as I look out of the aeroplane window.’Tilda created a bridge between her life as a film actress and her life in the remote Highlands by setting up her own film festival, renting a ballroom in Nairn to screen films.

She shrugs off questions about her quirky and very individual looks. Vive la difference.’She wasn’t always so sanguine, however, about her appearance. So he’s always felt like a cousin even though I’d never met him.
‘I’m not sure I know what people mean when they say I look different,’ she says. It was her lookalike David Bowie, for whom she appeared in a video last year for his album The Next Day, who enabled her as a teenager to overcome her insecurities about looking different. It gave me great comfort at the time that not only did someone else look like this, but felt proud enough to stick themselves on the front of an album with a lightning zig-zag across their face .
