‘WONKA’ actor Timothée Chalamet has spoken about “beautiful” Lyme Regis in a BBC radio interview.

The 25-year-old actor is playing Willy Wonka in Warner Bros’ new musical and was seen filming at the Cobb in Lyme Regis earlier this month, sending young fans into a frenzy.

He appeared on the Zoe Ball Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2 to promote his current film ‘Dune’, along with co-star Zendaya, last week and the presenter asked him about his new project ‘Wonka’.

He said he had recently been filming in Lyme Regis, a part of England he had never visited before.

Timothée said filming had been “a joy” and commenting on Lyme Regis he added: “Absolutely beautiful. We were hosted very nicely by everyone in the town, it’s a beautiful place.”

The American actor said he then continued filming in Bath – joking about the correct pronunciation of the city – and was now back in the studio in London.

“It’s been a lot of fun and keep your eyes peeled for a golden ticket,” he added.

‘Wonka’ is expected to be released in March 2023.
