Swinton Not Involved with ‘Prince Caspian’?

From the MTV Movies Blog:

Sharp-eyed viewers of the new trailer for “The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian” may notice a familiar face where it doesn’t belong – namely, in the **** trailer at all, joked recent Oscar winner Tilda Swinton, whose character, the White Witch, can be seen in clips for the film but not in the film itself.

She thinks.

“I’m dead! I don’t know what they’re doing there,” she laughed. “What are they playing at? Isn’t she dead? I [certainly] thought so!”

Still, it didn’t surprise Swinton that her face popped up, even if she was never contacted.

“They have my image in their computer bank. They can do whatever they want,” she said. “They can make me sell whatever they want.”

This indicates that when Tilda visited the set in Prague, it was perhaps just a friendly visit and not for a day of shooting. (James McAvoy also visited the set in Prague but won’t be appearing in the film).
