“I’m at the point now where I thought it would be cool for maybe like 100 people or like 1,000 people,” Doherty told Vulture on Tuesday over Zoom. “And now it’s like, 100,000 views and I’m like, Am I about to lose my whole account?” Below, we spoke to the 21-year-old about providing the Timothée Chalamet Twonka (twink Wonka) footage the internet needs and get the very first review of Wonka (2023).
What’s it like hearing him sing the “Hat Full of Dreams” song?
They were just playing the tracks from it and recording the actual musical numbers today. And I was like, “This is amazing.”
Do you like it?
Oh, getting ready to wade into the discourse. Um, yeah, I think it’s really cute. I don’t know if that is going to be the final version. It’s so nice to see him skipping around with his little cane and his hat. Like, the body language was so good. Even just from his walk I was like, “He’s got this down.”
It’s really fun to see him lean into theater-kid roots again. We love theater kids.
How would you describe the plot based exclusively on what you’ve seen?
Warner Bros. are going to drag me for this. There seem to be a lot of French writing on the vehicles and number plates. So, I feel like it might be like France or Canada, but don’t hold me to that. And it looked like they were filming him getting off of a boat. Either he’s going to get the Oompa Loompas or coming back from them, or I don’t know. Don’t want to wade into the Oompa Loompa discourse too much because it’s gonna be a thing.
You’ve claimed Wonka Timothée Chalamet as a twink.
He is. I’m sorry. I’m not attaching any other labels other than twink. I think you can’t disagree with that.
Can you describe some of the qualities that make him a twink?
It’s just the walk. If you’re gonna do a young Willy Wonka, he’s gonna end up being a twink by nature. But the joie de vivre from the walk and the way he’s just bouncing along with a little top hat and tails, it’s just twinky behavior. There’s no other way to put it. I’m sorry.
