While promoting her new vampire flick Only Lovers Left Alive actress Tilda Swinton told The New York Posts' PageSix.com that she's not afraid of death:
“I think in a funny way we all do live forever. There aren’t that many people who aren’t spoken about after they die . . . I think immortality is probably overrated. I am all for the adventure. It’s coming and I’m not frightened.”
Swinton is known for playing fearless characters and it has apparently carried over into her real life. She won an Academy Award for her performance in Michael Clayton and is probably best known as The White Witch in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

Perhaps playing a vampire made her realize that immortality would get boring. While many might not share Swinton's views on death, we certainly understand vampire fatigue. Between True Blood, Twilight, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, more Twilight, Dark Shadows, even more Twilight we're all vampire-d out.
