THE IMPRESSIVE TALENT OF TIMOTHÉE CHALAMET
From Dune to Wonka, actor Timothée Chalamet will be on screens everywhere this year and next. How does he get in touch with such different characters?
Who’s Asking the Questions?
The things Timothée Chalamet [ˈtɪməθi ˈʃæləmeɪ] doesn’t say about himself speak far more for him than the things he does. In Chalamet’s interview with British Vogue, Giles Hattersley notes that Chalamet is “a rare interviewee“ … in that he much prefers to ask the questions”. He’ll ask questions like how someone’s doing or what they think of the latest play in London. But ask Chalamet about his own opinions, and the actor becomes vague. He’s not active on social media. He doesn’t put his face in a lot of fashion ads. And his love life? Even the paparazzi only get glimpses. When Hattersley asks Chalamet if he imagines himself as a father or husband one day, the actor says, “I’ll have to get back to you on that.”
