Paris Fashion Week + interview with drama teacher

Timothée’s at the Paris Fashion Week and you can see images from Berluti’s show in the gallery. Vanity Fair has also conducted an interview with Timmy’s drama teacher at LaGuardia. It’s a pretty interesting read, so head on over to Vanity Fair. Some excerpts can also be read below.

In Call Me by Your Name, there’s that incredible naturalism to his acting. Is that something you always noticed about him?

I think that’s really what we worked to get to. I auditioned Timmy to get into this school. He just happened to come to my room for the callback audition, and I remember his audition because I gave him the highest score I’ve ever given a kid auditioning. He was really that good, and he must have been, I don’t know, 13 at the time. It was riveting. He did two monologues, and then I think we had him read his scene. It was already clear that this kid was so interesting and gifted and compelling, and he didn’t get accepted [into the school], which surprised me. His sister was in my class, and she told me, “He didn’t get in.” I was like, “What? How did that happen?” I went to the principal [of the school at the time] . . . For some reason, who knows, maybe it was something on his middle-school record, lateness, or I don’t know what—[he had been] rejected in the interview. Thank goodness the principal was responsive to me, because I was very incensed that Timmy didn’t get in. To her credit—this was the last principal before the current one—she admitted him. In fact, thank god she did, because, I don’t know, he’d probably be in medical school now.
