Lately, I've been thinking of starting almost like a little series of articles highlighting some great actors/singers, and today I'm finally doing it!

Today, we're going to talk about the beautiful...

Timothee Chalamet!

Born: December 27th, 1995 (Making him 22 and a Capricorn)

He was born and raised in Hell's Kitchen, Manhattan (aka Clinton). His mother is a real estate agent and former Broadway dancer, and his father is an editor for UNICEF.

Timothee is of French and Jewish decent. His father was born and raised in France. Timothee spent his childhood summers in France and can actually speak fluent French! comme c'est séduisant! mon coeur!

He went to the LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, later attending Columbia University for one year, and then NYU Gallatin School of Individualized Study so he could focus more on his acting career.

His early roles began in commercials as a child and some short films, but he later went on to have small roles in shows/plays/movies like Law & Order, Loving Leah, The Talls, Royal Pains, Homeland, Men Women & Children, Interstellar, Worst Friends, One & Two, The Adderall Diaries, Love the Coopers, Prodigal Son, and Miss Stevens.

"He is compelling even when he’s just watching silently and reacting to the other characters. When he has to explode with rage or manic energy, he’s startling. And in the drama competition, his reading of a climactic speech from Death of a Salesman suggests that this young actor has a bright future in many different media. (I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a better performance of that speech.)"
- Stephen Farber of The Hollywood Reporter

Breakthrough Roles

Call Me By Your Name: Chalamet's work in this film as Elio won him the Gotham Award for Breakthrough Actor, and several highly acclaimed nominations. He is the youngest person nominated for an Academy Award as Best Actor since 1940.
Lady Bird
Hostiles
Hot Summer Nights (set to be released some time this year)

Upcoming Roles

Beautiful Boy, The King, and A Rainy Day in New York alongside Selena Gomez! (Timmy expressed that he had had second thoughts about working with Woody Allen for this film, so he decided to donate his entire salary for the film to the Time's Up initiative against sexual harassment.)

Okay, so now that we covered the stats and facts and what not, can we just talk about how incredible this boy is??!!

Not only is he an amazing actor, but he has such a great personality, as well. All you have to do is watch one interview of his, and you'll already see how genuine, eloquent, funny, and real Timothee is. He's goofy and cute and kind of awkward at times, which is why I love him. Since he's fairly new to the public eye and worldwide fame, it seems as if he hasn't been corrupted yet by the understanding of just how many people love him, if that makes sense.

Anyway, I just love Timothee Chalamet so much, and his career is growing more and more as we speak. He's already starring alongside SELENA GOMEZ (and they're friends! They did an instagram live stream together while hanging out and eating food. I love that my two favs are friends.) And yesterday I saw that Harry Styles just followed him on Instagram. YESSS

Here's some interviews I love :)

Thanks for reading! And stay tuned for v.2! <3
