- “Dune” costars Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya appeared on “GMA” and spoke about their dance parties.
- During breaks on the set, the stars would play music and dance in Zendaya’s dressing room.
- Chalamet said they danced to songs from “Lil Wayne, T-Pain, ‘High School Musical,’ stuff like that.”
“There’s always some kind of music emanating from his pocket or a small speaker that he carries with him,” she continued. “So he definitely started with the tunes, I hosted in my dressing room, and then we had a few people attending our little party, one being Javier Bardem.”
Chalamet and Zendaya met through their roles as Paul Atreides and Chani, respectively, in Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming film adaptation of Frank Herbert’s sci-fi novel “Dune.”
The movie is set for release on Friday, with the potential for a sequel also based on Hebert’s writing.
On “GMA,” Chalamet and Zendaya recalled costars Bardem (Stilgar) and Jason Momoa (Duncan Idaho) joining in their trailer parties.
“The playlist was something like a 2008 dance playlist,” Chalamet said. “If you were into that era, Lil Wayne, T-Pain, ‘High School Musical,’ stuff like that.”
“Soaring, flying, there’s not a star in heaven that we cannot reach,” the “Little Women” star added, quoting the “HSM” track performed by Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens‘ characters in the 2006 musical.

This isn’t the first time Chalamet and Zendaya have spoken about their friendship and bonding activities.
Zendaya told British Vogue that she recalled her costar playing “2000s dance songs like Soulja Boy” at their trailer parties. During a conversation for Elle back in fall 2020 and an interview with Stephen Colbert in February, she said that their dance breaks were her favorite thing to do when the cast wasn’t filming “Dune.”
“I would leave the door open, Timothée would come in with his little speaker, and then everybody would start coming in, and then we’d just start dancing,” Zendaya said on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.”
“There was a super legit fucking wrap party at the end there,” Chalamet said during their Elle chat.
