Harry Styles Dunkirk Director Didnt Know He Was Famous During Casting

It’s hard to believe that there’s anyone on the planet who hasn’t heard of One Direction in 2017, but apparently there is and he cast Harry Styles in a movie.

director Christopher Nolan told the Associated Press on Friday that he hadn’t really grasped how famous Styles was when he cast him in the upcoming war drama. I don’t think I was that aware, really, he said.

I mean, my daughter had talked about him. My kids talked about him, but I wasn’t really that aware of it. So the truth is, I cast Harry because he fit the part wonderfully and truly earned a seat at the table.

Nolan, who’s known for films like and trilogy and has worked with Oscar-winnerslike Leonardo DiCaprio and Anne Hathaway, continued on to praise Styles’ acting. I think what he does in the film is really remarkable in its subtlety and truthfulness, he said. I think he’s an extraordinarily talented actor.

Aw, what a sweet validation!

Styles plays a British solider during the real-life World War II evacuation of Dunkirk, also called The Miracle of Dunkirk. During the evacuation some 400,000 Allied soldiers, trapped in France and surrounded by German troops, were rescued over the course of nine days in 1940, many by private citizens (including a former officer on the Titanic) in small boats.

It’s Styles’ first foray into film, and it sure seems like it’s going well!

Clearly, his boss likes his work.

Stylestold the AP that his One Direction bandmates were supportive of him branching out. I think they’re excited to see it, he said. But he’s not sure whether he’ll stick with acting, go back to music, or aim for somewhere in between.I haven’t really thought about it too much, he said.

Well, he has plenty of time to decide. He only just released his first eponymous studio album, , back in May, after teasing it for weeks withreleases of singles and videos. And he does have that world tour coming up as well, which should give him plenty of time to figure out where he’ll take things next.

If he does choose to doanother film, they’ll probably know who he is by then.
