As part of a spotlight on the performers of the year feature by The Times, Timothée made a short film called The Cannibal. You can see it here or below and see some screencaps in the gallery.
Timmy was on The Late Late Show with James Corden last night and you can see some clips for his appearance below.
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 for winning the Gotham Award for Best Breakthrough Actor and for ‘Call Me By Your Name’ for winning Best Picture. You can see images from the event in the gallery and Timmy’s acceptance speech below. Thanks a bunch to my awesome affiliate I Heart Saoirse for these. More images coming, so keep an eye out.

Timmy has been busy lately promoting ‘Call Me By Your Name’ and as part of the promotion, he attended the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon show yesterday evening. You can see a portion of his interview below. He also gave print interview for several news outlets such as IndieWire and The LA Times. You can read the full interviews at the links and some snippets below. I have also updated the gallery with several new photoshoots and some images from the ‘Call Me By Your Name’ premiere and after party.
Long before Timothée Chalamet turned 18, he was itching to be considered an adult. By age 10, he was riding the subway alone, a city kid growing up in Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan. At 16, he landed a major role on Showtime’s “Homeland,” playing the vice president’s overly entitled son. A year later, he was admitted to Columbia University at 17 years old.
That was also how old Chalamet was when he was cast in his first big studio movie, “Interstellar.” The film was slated to shoot in Canada, and the teenager had no interest in bringing his parents along as his legal guardians. So he looked online and found a loophole in the California state law that said “for films made by production companies based out of the West Coast, if you have a high school degree and are over 16 then you can travel alone,” Chalamet explained. The La Times
In kindergarten, Chalamet was a lukewarm commercial actor. His “first moment of passion” for the craft came at age 12, seeing Heath Ledger’s Joker in “The Dark Knight.” “I just had no clue what was going on in his head, and I thought it was the coolest thing in the world,” said Chalamet, holding his perfect trapezoid of chin. It is a Tuesday afternoon at the Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood, and we’re overlooking the rooftop pool.
Once enrolled at LaGuardia (alongside Ansel Elgort and Grace Van Patten), Chalamet later told Columbia University’s student newspaper, Bwog, that he no longer regarded acting as a “machine of fakeness.” Through his mom — a councillor for the Actors’ Equity Association’s governing body — teenage Chalamet caught Philip Seymour Hoffman as Willy Loman in the Broadway production of “Death of a Salesman,” directed by Mike Nichols. Last year, “Doubt” screenwriter John Patrick Shanley handpicked Chalamet to star as a younger version of himself in the Manhattan Theatre Club production of “Prodigal Son.”
Chalament said he identifies as “a theater guy.” Until that Tuesday night in October, “A film experience has never really translated to a theater experience for me,” he said. At the conclusion of “Call Me by Your Name,” a spotlight lit up the balcony. “It very much felt like, weirdly, a play,” Chalamet said. The crowd gave the actors and filmmaker a 10-minute standing ovation, the longest recorded in the festival’s 55 years. IndeWire
