The Oscar-winning actress played the villain in "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" and briefly reprised her role in its sequel "Prince Caspian."
"It was a great thing to be able to get her back," Adamson told UPI in New York recently.
"She was very happy to be back. I don't know if you noticed in the end of the film, but Tilda and her kids are actually centaurs. Not many people will notice that, but there's a little cameo she did within a cameo," the director explained.
"But she's wonderful. She's just kind of this fan of the film. She said in an interview at one stage that she'd be happy to do a movie with me even if it was in my garage and she had to wear a pointy hat. And when she won her Golden Globe or the Oscar, I texted her and said, 'Will you still do that movie in the garage?' And she texted me back, 'Where's my call sheet, dude?' She's great."
