Timothée Chalamet Engages with Aspiring Actors in Hibbing During Bob Dylan Biopic Research

Hibbing, Minnesota – Actor Timothée Chalamet made a surprise visit to Hibbing, Minnesota, on Thursday. The renowned actor, known for his roles in “Wonka” and “Dune,” was in town to prepare for his upcoming portrayal of Hibbing-born legend Bob Dylan in a biographical film about his early life.

Chalamet took the time to engage with aspiring actors from the drama department at Hibbing High School. He joined them for a rehearsal of their upcoming production of “The Girl in the White Pinafore,” spending about 45 minutes in the same auditorium where Bob Dylan himself performed over 60 years ago. The visit was captured in a Facebook post by Flom Designs and Photography, a local photography studio.

During his time with the students, Chalamet shared insights and answered questions about his experiences as an actor. Jefferson Reynolds, a Hibbing resident, described the encounter as a “sweet time” for the drama students, many of whom are considering pursuing theater after high school. They were eager to learn about the journey from aspiring actor to professional, and Chalamet provided valuable guidance.

In addition to visiting Hibbing, Chalamet was also spotted in Duluth, where he enjoyed a black drip coffee and breakfast sandwich at the popular Duluth Coffee Company. A tweet from a USA Today reporter captured the moment.

The highly anticipated biopic, titled “A Complete Unknown,” will delve into Bob Dylan’s early years as a musician. Directed by James Mangold, the film is set to begin production in New York later this year, according to Deadline. Chalamet not only will portray Dylan on-screen but will also lend his voice to the role, as he did in his recent film “Wonka.”

With this unexpected visit, Timothée Chalamet has left a lasting impression on the Hibbing community, inspiring and connecting with young actors while immersing himself in the roots of the legendary Bob Dylan.
