Timothée Chalamet plunges into a chocolate vat for Wonka
Timothée Chalamet, the popular Franco-American actor, recently shared a delicious anecdote about the filming of Wonka, the film that explores the early years of the famous chocolatier Willy Wonka. The actor had to spend two days in a chocolate vat, an experience that turned out to be as delicious as it was unexpected.
From illusion to reality: a chocolate vat like no other
As a guest on the show C à vous, Timothée Chalamet told a captivated Anne-Elisabeth Lemoine how he found himself diving into a chocolate vat twice for the needs of the film Wonka. The first time, it was fake chocolate, and director Paul King advised him to taste it and say it was good. However, the person in charge of special effects was making big signs for him not to do it.
The second time, on the other hand, it was real chocolate, and the actor was able to fully enjoy it. This delicious and immersive experience certainly contributed to the authenticity of Timothée Chalamet's performance in the role of Willy Wonka.
A refreshing and optimistic Willy Wonka
The highly anticipated film Wonka focuses on the childhood and youth of the famous chocolatier created by Roald Dahl. This character has already been adapted to the cinema, notably in 1971 with actor Gene Wilder. At the CinemaCon convention in Las Vegas in April 2023, Timothée Chalamet explained that his interpretation of Willy Wonka would be different from previous versions, which were often cynical. His character will be happier and more optimistic, bringing a new dimension to this iconic role.
This significant challenge adds to the long list of ambitious projects for the actor, who will also star in Dune: Part Two, whose release has been delayed due to the pandemic. Timothée Chalamet continues to prove his talent and versatility by portraying diverse and memorable characters.
