What has the role of Elio in “Call Me by Your Name” added to your acting skills?
Really to just be and the confidence to just be. You know, I did this project called “Hostiles” in New Mexico two months [after “Call Me by Your Name”] with Christian Bale, and that’s an actor I’ve always admired and studied closely. And one of the amazing things I was inspired by on set with him was how little he reaches for moments or interesting behavioral things. And certainly, I would like to hope that with “Call Me by Your Name,” I was doing something similar, which is just being and keeping the artificial reaching for moments of interest to a minimum. If I learned anything to take to another set, even in projects I’ve done since or I’m going to do that are more exposition-oriented, [it is] that I’ll still be able to bring on this philosophy of just being and being faithful to the idea that an actor’s job, first and foremost—or perhaps in correlation with telling the story—is to do it believably.
In other news, ‘Call Me By Your Name’ has been nominated for several Indie Spirit awards, including an acting nod for Timmy.
Timothée attended several events these past few days for both ‘Call Me By Your Name’ and ‘Hostiles’ and you can see images from those in the gallery along with some new photoshoot images and magazine scans.
And according to Desert Sun, Timothée will also be awarded the Rising Star award at the Palm Springs Film Festival on January 2.
Chalamet, who turns 22 on Dec. 26, is primarily receiving his award for his acclaimed performance in “Call Me By Your Name,” a Luca Guadagnino film with an adapted screenplay by James Ivory.
Chalamet also is featured in two other films receiving awards buzz. He plays an army private helping to escort a Cheyenne chief and his family through a dangerous part of the Old West in Scott Cooper’s “Hostile,” starring Rosamund Pike and Christian Bale. He plays a boy giving Saoirse Ronan’s lead character her first sexual experience in Greta Gerwig’s “Lady Bird.” The latter was nominated for audience awards at the Mill Valley and Gotham Independent Film Awards festivals while “Hostile” was the opening night film of the recent AFI Fest.
As previously reported, Timothée is part of Variety’s ‘Actors on actors’ and attended the taping and photoshoot yesterday. You can see images in the gallery along with some more from AFI Fest.
