Timothée Chalamet is heartbroken over the coronavirus outbreak, especially with respect to the toll it is taking on the Italian town he filmed Call Me By Your Name in.
In a Tweet yesterday, Chalamet told the world how he feels about the situation in Italy, particularly in regard to the people of Crema where he spent months filming.
“I’m thinking of EVERYONE in hotspots right now, young and old, but CREMA – my heart is with you," wrote the actor. "I can’t believe this is happening. Heartbroken at these stories I‘m reading, in locations I know!! Please try to stay safe.”
Crema and areas around it have been particularly hard hit by the pandemic in Italy. According to the New York Times, as of Wednesday, there were 91 Covid-19 cases in Crema, and 263 in the wider area around it known as Cremasco.
