Are Tilda Swinton and Cate Blanchett the same person? Look at witchy ice queen Swinton in The Chronicles of Narnia (left) and witchy elf queen Blanchett in The Lord of the Rings (right), and you’ll surely agree. Have you ever seen these two otherworldly redheads in a room together? Nor have I. Hmmmm…

Still, there are subtle differences:

Swinton: Plays chilly, ruthless, pale queen Jadis in Narnia
Blanchett: Plays chilly, ruthless, pale queen Elizabeth I in Elizabeth

Swinton: Starred in Orlando
Blanchett: Costarred with Orlando Bloom (in LOTR)

Swinton: Costarred with Bill Murray in his midlife crisis film Broken Flowers
Blanchett: Costarred with Bill Murray in his midlife crisis film The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

Swinton: Grapples with lion in Narnia
Blanchett: Grapples with lyin’, cheatin’ husband in Pushing Tin

Swinton: Known for playing androgynous roles (Orlando, Constantine)
Blanchett: Known for playing Katharine Hepburn (The Aviator)
