Fan frenzy as Timothee Chalamet, Lily-Rose Depp premiere 'The King' in Venice
Actors Timothee Chalamet and Lily-Rose Depp were joined on the Venice Film Festival red carpet by Joel Edgerton, Sean Harris and Ben Mendelsohn and the film's director David Michod for the world premiere of their new movie "The King" on Monday (September 2).
The coming-of-age tale loosely based on William Shakespeare's plays about Prince Hal and his transformation into Henry V, sees Chalamet go from a reluctant heir to a powerful monarch.
The 23-year-old actor, known for "Beautiful Boy" and "Call Me by Your Name" which earned him an Oscar nomination, took time to sign autographs and pose for selfies with fans lined along the red carpet, returning to the screaming fans several times in-between team photos.
"The King" also stars "Twilight" actor Robert Pattinson who did not attend Monday's premiere.
The Netflix film is screening out of competition at the Venice festival.
