Tilda Swinton, who hails from Kimmerghame, Duns, was busy making her small-screen debut back in October 1990.

The actress was appearing in the BBC’s Your Cheating Heart, as a Glaswegian waitress who battles to prove her husband’s innocence.

It wasn’t her standout work from the early 90’s and late 80’s though - Swinton had already worked with the cult director Derek Jarman on his War Requiem, along with Lord Olivier, and Jarman’s Caravaggio.
