Variety has released it’s Actors on Actors interview Timothée did with Daniel Kaluuya of ‘Get Out’ fame. You can see that below along with a clip from ‘Lady Bird’ that was released by EW. The Tracking Board and The LA Times have also both released ‘Call Me By Your Name’ related interviews.
This has been an amazing year for you. Where do you go from here? How do you find a character like Elio in another movie? What are some of your goals for next year?
Patience and just the desire to work with good storytellers and good directors, and not necessarily in a lead capacity, as in the case of Lady Bird or Hostiles. And take any positive reception but with the understanding that the crux of the experience is doing it.
Are there any actors you’ve worked with who you’ve either turned to for advice or who’ve offered advice? What advice have you been given that you can share?
Well, just live for the moment and just to appreciate this period — and this is also from my own experience — because it’s certainly not always like this, and an actor’s career is unnatural if it isn’t filled with many ups and downs. Just live a day at a time almost.
Congratulations to Timothée once again for winning the Best Actor award at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards and to ‘Lady Bird’ for winning Best Picture. Read more at Variety. Relevant excerpt below. The awards will be presented January 3, 2018.
Best Actor: Chalamet (“Call Me by Your Name”)
A breakthrough staple so far this season, Chalamet has caught fire as a bona fide lead actor contender in this year’s race. He’s also had a busy year, appearing in “Hostiles” and “Lady Bird” as well. He is the youngest best actor winner in NYFCC history.
The first still from ‘Hostiles’ featuring Timothée has been released (even though he’s quite blurred) and you can see that in the gallery. ‘Lady Bird’ was also screened at Telluride yesterday and you can read a short snippet about Timothée below and the full review over at IndieWire.
In the meantime, Lady Bird’s enduring the more pressing challenges of amateur high school plays and ramshackle romances, pivoting between ill-advised romances with the good-natured Danny (Lucas Hedges) and chic rocker Kyle (Timothée Chalamet, a world apart from the gay teen in “Call Me By Your Name”).
EW has released a new ‘Lady Bird’ set image as part of it’s 18 movies to look out for at TIFF segment. You can see that in the gallery along with another still and a few promo shoot images from ‘Call Me By Your Name’.
Idie darling Greta Gerwig has codirected with Joe Swanberg (Nights and Weekends) and collaborated on screenplays with Noah Baumbach (Frances Ha and Mistress America). Now she takes a solo spin (wonderfully, according to early chatter) behind the camera in this film starring Saoirse Ronan as a student who wants to shake her small town for New York City. Laurie Metcalf and Tracey Letts costar as Ronan’s parents.
