Timothee Chalamet age-
Timothee Chalamet is 27 years old as of November 2023. He was born on December 27, 1995, in New York City, to a French father and an American mother.
Chalamet is bilingual in English and French, and holds dual United States and French citizenship due to his French father. Growing up, Chalamet spent summers in Le Chambon-sur-Lignon, a small French village two hours away from Lyon, at the home of his paternal grandparents.
He stated that his time in France led to cross-cultural identity issues. Chalamet attended PS 87 William T. Sherman School for elementary school, and later the selective Delta program at MS 54 Booker T. Washington Middle School, which he described as miserable due to the lack of a creative outlet within the school’s academically rigorous environment.
Heath Ledger’s performance as the Joker in The Dark Knight (2008) inspired him to pursue a career in acting. He applied to Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts. His acceptance into the school was a turning point in his appreciation for acting.
His sophomore-year drama teacher at LaGuardia was so impressed by his audition that he insisted on Chalamet’s acceptance into the school, even though he had been rejected in the interview (due to his middle school record),saying: “I gave him the highest score I’ve ever given a kid auditioning.”
During high school, Chalamet dated Madonna’s daughter Lola Leon, a fellow student, for a year. He starred in school musicals as Emcee in Cabaret and Oscar Lindquist in Sweet Charity, graduating in 2013. He is also a YoungArts alumnus.
After high school, Chalamet, then 17, attended Columbia University for one year, majoring in cultural anthropology, and was a resident of Hartley Hall.
He later transferred to New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study to pursue his acting career more freely, having found it difficult to assimilate to Columbia directly after filming Interstellar. Upon leaving Columbia, Chalamet moved to Concourse, Bronx.
Chalamet began his career as a child actor, appearing in a number of commercials. He also developed his acting skills by appearing in a number of short films.
His first major TV role was in an episode of “Law & Order.” Timothée then appeared in the TV film “Loving Leah” before taking to stage in an Off-Broadway production of “The Talls.”
By 2012, he had landed recurring roles in series such as “Royal Pains” and “Homeland.” The latter series allowed the young Chalamet to rise to greater prominence, and his performances earned him various honors and accolades.
