And he can pronounce perfectly the Hungarian word ‘Szilvásvárad.’
Timothée Chalamet is a regular ‘guest worker’ in Hungary, so to speak, and the country has made an impact on him. He talked about his experience and about his latest film on the press tour of Little Women, an upcoming American coming-of-age period drama, in which he plays the role of Theodore “Laurie” Laurence, hvg reported.
He said that he adores Hungary, and as a Hungarian journalist rightly pointed it out in his interview, he pronounced ‘Szilvásvárad’ perfectly. Here you can watch the relevant excerpt of the video:

Chalamet shot both a Netflix movie titled The King and the new Dune movie in Hungary.
We wrote HERE about The King when its first trailer appeared on Netflix. Some parts of the film were shot in the Hungarian town called Szilvásvárad, so this is why Chalamet can pronounce the name of the city so well. The film presents the story of medieval monarch King Henry V, based on Shakespeare’s three dramas that were adapted by Joel Edgerton and David Michôd.
Michôd also directed the movie, while Edgerton acted in the film, along with such stars as Timothée Chalamet, Sean Harris, Tom Glynn-Carney, Lily-Rose Depp, Thomasin McKenzie, Robert Pattinson, and Ben Mendelsohn. The Hollywood star, Brad Pitt, was also involved in the production as co-producer. Last summer, the actor could be seen riding a bicycle in Eger.
The new film Dune will be shot in Hungary, too, with actors like Rebecca Ferguson, Charlotte Rampling, Javier Bardem, Timothée Chalamet, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, and Stellan Skarsgård. We wrote about the details HERE.
And what about Szilvásvárad?
Well, we wrote HERE that it is one of the most romantic picnic spots of Hungary, and HERE you can find an article about the top five forest trains in Hungary, one of which is in Szilvásvárad. And finally, Szilvásvárad is the home of one of the five stud farms in Hungary that are a part of the exceptional Hungarian cultural heritage.
