    Timothée's an actor, known for his roles in movies like Interstellar, Little Women, and Call Me by Your Name. He's been admired by fans for quite some time, but recently, TikTokers have taken swooning to a whole new level.

    In a trend known as the Timmy Challenge, TikTok users have taken this popular dance scene from CMBYN and added slow motion, a sparkle effect, and a few seconds of Melanie Martinez’s song “Play Date” — making the scene go from this:
