Christopher Nolan Is Very Impressed With Harry Styles 'Dunkirk' Performance So Far

Harry Styles gets direction from a crew member while driving a boat back to shore on the set of Dunkirk on Tuesday (July 12) in Urk, Netherlands.

The 22-year-old One Direction singer and now actor hopped back on dry land after parking the vessel safely.

A source shared with Mirror that Harry was actually giving more screen time and lines for the film.

Chris[topher Nolan, director] already had great faith in Harry‘s acting abilities and that’s why he gave him a role in the first place, but he’s surprised everyone with how natural a performer he is. He really commits to the part,” the source shared.

Adding, “It just made sense to increase his screen time. He’s a natural in front of the camera and of course having one of the biggest pop stars in the world attached to the project is a huge plus. Originally Harry was given just a little dialogue but the kids a natural and Chris rewarded him with more.”

    That doesn’t sound like a Nolan decision, more like a studio decision. Why would a director give one actor more screen time in the middle of the shoot?! And why only to Styles? He has far better actors on set than Styles! That makes no sense from an artistic standpoint. But it makes sense if the studio wanted more Styles because he is good for drawing attention to the movie (war movies might not be very popular with many people). I think there was a hidden agenda. If Nolan acted this way, he would have had to give more screen time to a lot of his cast, since he always has outstanding actors in his cast. I am not convinced about the entire Harry Styles thing being Nolan’s idea to begin with. Why would you have to audition someone so many times? If he is the right one, you will know right away. It sounds more like Nolan needed to be convinced that he is the right one by looking at him many times. (increasing familiarity can help making such a decision)
