Zendaya and Timothée Chalamet dish on their Dune love story
Figuring out how to navigate the characters' relationship in a setting so disconnected from reality was a challenge for the actors, despite their experience.
"It was funny trying to figure out in this futuristic space talk, like, how do they flirt?" the Euphoria star said. "
"We were definitely trying to navigate that, which was funny because all of us were stumped. I think it's just as foreign to us as it probably is to the characters," she added.
Director Denis Villeneuve revealed that although the sequel is "a war epic action movie," Chani and Paul's love story remains at the heart of the plot.
Timothée echoed this idea, telling the outlet that Zendaya's character serves as "a moral compass" for his own.
Dune: Part Two will hit theaters on November 3.
