    What a wonderful girl Tilda is. Every happiness and success.

    Love the woman and a superb actress too!

  3. A generous celeb who actually gives their own money rather than making an appeal for others to do so. Respect to her.

  4. Always nice to see a celeb who’s so publicity shy…

  5. What a wonderful woman!
    She’s an amazingly talented actress, and obviously very in touch with the world and Human Rights too.
    And I echo what PJM says, it’s great to see a celebrity actually giving up some cash instead of just quilting all their fans into doing so.

    1. That should be guilting, not quilting! lol

      Indeed! Totally concur! Did you ever see her in the very artistic film “Orlando”? Amazing performance and one that drew me to her. I think Erasure did some of the soundtrack for it.

    Good girl

  7. I love Tilda. And not just because of this, but because of her acting and her looks.

    Bit confused about Nikolai saying ‘ ‘Alexey was a hero and now he will have a fitting funeral. I am pleased we were able to help in our small way but all the credit belongs to the generous donors and Alexey’s brave activist friends.’ as in fact it was Gay Star News editor Tris Reid-Smith who was glad to play a part in raising the funds and said this.
    I should know I wrote it for GSN yesterday – http://www.gaystarnews.com/article/british-actress-tilda-swindon-donates-%C2%A31000-funeral-russian-gay-rights-activist-alexey-davydy

    1. If Tristram Reid Smith was such a fan of his “hero” Alexey, why didn’t he write about him when he was alive?
