The pair met at La Guardia High School of Music and Performing Arts on the Upper West Side, where Timothee is part of the class of 2013. Loudes is reportedly studying drama at the school and will graduate next year. The school was the inspiration for the 1980 film, “Fame.”
A source told the New York Post, “It’s common knowledge at the school that the pair are dating." The Post reached out to Madonna’s spokeswoman about the romance between her daughter and Chalamet, but declined to comment on the matter. Reps for Chalamet did not return calls of the newspaper.
The New York Magazine recently featured Madonna’s daughter and the actor, together with other students of the school in its “Reasons To Love New York” issue. The headline for their feature was “Because La Guardia High School Is Still Churning Out Talent.
Aside from appearing in “Homeland,” Chamlet also appeared in USA Network’s “Royal Pains.” He, however, is best known for his Showtime gig as the son of Vice President Walden. In a noted scene, he killed a pedestrian during a joy ride around Washington, DC, with Sgt. Nicholas Brody’s daughter, Dana, which was played by Morgan Saylor.
Lourdes is Madonna’s daughter from actor and personal trainer, Carlos Leon. Leon is marrying his Danish girlfriend, Bettina Holtz, this summer. Leon starred in the 2011 movie “Immigration Tango,” and is known to be a very protective dad, especially of her daughter, Lourdes. He told People magazine while promoting the film’s release, ““I got the best thing out of that relationship, and that’s my daughter. My daughter is everything to me.”
Then, Lourdes was 14, and wasn’t dating yet. Leon, however, knew that the time would come and has some word for the possible suitor: “I’m dreading it . . . because she’s my little girl. I want her to stay young forever. I’m already overprotective, so when the time comes, I will be ready to have a talk with the guy she brings through the door. He better be ready, because I’ll give him the rundown!”
