Timothee Chalamet looks in good spirits as he films Wonka in Dorset 

Timothee Chalamet appeared in good spirits as he filmed scenes for the upcoming Willy Wonka prequel film, called Wonka, in Lyme Regis, Dorset on Tuesday.

The actor, 25, was sat on a large blue box covered in fake snow that was propped up by a truck for the scene.

The film star could be seen sporting a purple coat and dark brown top hat similar to the costume worn by Gene Wilder in the original Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory in 1971.
