According to Cannes Delegate General Thierry Frémaux, the Canadian singer is often a guest at the festival, although he has often arrived incognito for various screenings.
The artist, whose legal name is Abel Tesfaye, told Interview magazine, stepping into a TV show was a new challenge he was eager to accept.
‘I do challenge myself,’ he admitted, ‘and this was a challenge.’

Challenge: The Weeknd told Interview magazine he created his The Idol character Tedros as a way to challenge himself. ‘What drew me to play him was just getting to pretend to be someone else’
‘This was something that I’ve always wanted to do. Film and TV, mainly film, has always been kind of the heartbeat of everything I do artistically. If you see my music videos, even sonically, everything is so cinematic and referential to films that I obsess over.’
The singer-turned-actor said he had a variety of reasons for wanting to play Tedros in The Idol.
‘I wrote him, but what drew me to play him was just getting to pretend to be someone else.’
‘It was a challenge, because The Weeknd, obviously, isn’t me. But I drew a lot from myself to create (The Weeknd) character. Tedros is nothing like me.’
