If there are two words (one containing an accent) that are guaranteed to ensure that a 6:40 arrival at Leicester Square will only get you #71 on a list to get into a premiere…. they are surely Timothée and Chalamet.
Last year, at the BFI LFF premiere for ‘Beautiful Boy’ I so massively underestimated the size of his fandom that I had to shoot the premiere FROM OUTSIDE THE PREMIERE as I couldn’t get in. The other time I photographed him was again outside the event - not his fault that time - it was this year’s BAFTAs, where he was the Arrival who spent the most time with fans before even going INTO the event.
But.. like I said….. this time I had access. Here’s how it went down:
And tho I didst glance upon heralded visage of Chalamet one more time… I feel it’s time to leave this journal here. It’s late, and there’s still 10 more days of this to go.
Until next time!
+1 for the Archive of premieres, follow me on facebook, follow me on twitter, follow me on instagram (somehow)…and thanks for the fans of Timothee Chalamet at this event : they made it a lot of fun,they were excited, they kept the dealers at bay… and I gotta say the object of their affection was a genuinely nice guy.
……Of course it took me longer than usual to get home. Trains north were leaving from another platform and taking all stations to get there. Keep Calm and You Get This Kind Of Shit….. so stop being calm, I say.
