Timothée to join ‘Actors on actors’ on PBS

According to Variety, Timothée is one of the chosen actors to join ‘Actors on actors’ on PBS. You can read more at Variety’s website and relevant excerpts below.

“Actors on Actors” features exclusive, one-on-one conversations with top talent from the year’s most memorable films, who are expected to contend this awards season. Clips from the interviews will be available on variety.com at the end of November and full episodes of the new season will air from Jan. 2 to Jan. 4 at 7 p.m. on PBS SoCal KOCE.

The episodes will also be available to stream on pbssocal.org. PBS stations across the country will air the show in January.

The program feature pairs of acclaimed actors chatting with each other about their lives, their craft, and their careers. This season’s featured conversations will include:

Timothée Chalamet (“Call Me by Your Name”) with Daniel Kaluuya (“Get Out”)

You can also read a short interview with Timmy at AFI’s website.

AFI: What does the title — CALL ME BY YOUR NAME — and the act it describes in the film mean to you?

TC: To love someone is to become them, and that love is an act of empathy, and that to take on your [lover’s] name in an expression of love is to totally reveal yourself as a human being and to offer yourself as a compassionate lover and friend.

Timotheé Chalamet on filming the infamous peach scene…

“I remember eating a peach maybe a week after that scene and thinking, ‘Oh, we did a scene with this fruit.’ I didn’t have it to the degree I do now but just from flicking around online, that’s the scene that’s consistently highlighted itself. It’s funny because now I’m about as aware of that as I could be. When we were shooting that scene, you know, sometimes I really would forget that the camera was there. By the time we did that scene it was almost like an out of body experience.”

New York Times article + more ‘Call Me By Your Name’ stills

Timothée gave a short interview to The New York Times accompanied by gorgeous new photoshoot images which you can see in the gallery in HQ. Sony Pictures Classics has also released new ‘Call Me By Your Name’ stills which you can also see in the gallery.


New Yorker Timothée Chalamet found his first major role not in an action movie or a comedy, but in something more nuanced — Luca Guadagnino’s ‘‘Call Me by Your Name,’’ in theaters this fall. ‘‘There were a number of things that appealed to me about the part,’’ the 21-year-old actor says of Elio, a precocious high schooler summering with his parents — and a visiting graduate student, a friend of his father’s — in their family seat in northern Italy. ‘‘One was its complexity; it’s rare to find a young character who has such a fierce inner struggle raging.’’

New interview for W Magazine

W Magazine published a new interview with Timothée, Armie Hammer and Michael Stuhlbarg about ‘Call Me By Your Name’. You can read that here or some excerpts below. I have also added the two images from the interview to the gallery in higher quality than they are on the website.


In the TV show Homeland, Chalamet stole practically every scene he was in, and in Call Me by Your Name he is electrifying. His mix of raw awkwardness and puppy-like enthusiasm should be recognizable to anyone who has felt a deep longing that they didn’t totally understand.

“I first met with Luca when I was 17,” Chalamet, who is now 21, told me at the photo shoot for W. He was dressed in jeans and a T-shirt. “We had lunch, and Call Me by Your Name seemed far away from being real. It seemed unlikely that I would be the lead of the movie, or that the movie would happen at all. What I did know is that if the movie did manage to happen, Luca would have his fingerprints on every shot of the film. His superpower is his sensuality—his ability to make everything feel romantic.”

New interview in ‘Interview Magazine’

Timotheé’s featured in the July issue of ‘Interview Magazine’ talking about filming ‘Interstellar’, ‘Hostiles’, ‘Beautiful Boy’ and a few more things. You can read it here and see the images in the gallery.


Well, I’m in San Francisco right now, working on a project called Beautiful Boy, trying to follow in the footsteps of committed performances and performers—I’m playing a heroin and methamphetamine addict. I lost weight to help accurately capture the dark stages of the drug. I’ve been getting to work with Steve Carell and just feel like the luckiest kid in the world. I love being able to see how people sink into the material—like watching you work your way through scenes, trying new things, always keeping it fresh. I got to work with Christian Bale over the summer, on Hostiles. It’s so impressive to see you guys work. I want to attack and to lead my life with vigor, but I’m in the watching stage at the moment. Younger actors feel pressure to bring a pop to every scene, as the roles get bigger, I’m finding you can add layers and do less scene-to-scene.
