This Is Why Christopher Nolan Cast Harry Styles in 'Dunkirk'

Harry Styles landed his first acting role by auditioning just like everyone else.

The 23-year-old “Sign of the Times” singer beat out thousands of people for the role in Christopher Nolan‘s war film Dunkirk.

“When we put the cast together, we had some established names: Kenneth Branagh, Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy,” Christopher told Los Angeles Times. “But for the guys on the beach, we really wanted young unknowns. He’s not that unknown, but he’d never done anything as an actor before. So he auditioned. I auditioned literally thousands of young men with different combinations of young men. And he had it.”

Dunkirk hits theaters on July 21.

    I trust Christopher Nolan, the man can do no wrong. Besides just because Styles is a mediocre singer doesn’t mean he’ll be a bad actor too, maybe acting is his real call in life.
