Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Singer Harry Styles (far right) is about to make his first ma­jor de­but as an ac­tor in the war-drama film, Dunkirk. Film­maker Christo­pher Nolan (left) says that the singer, who is the front­man of the band, One Di­rec­tion was picked on merit dur­ing au­di­tions,that at­tracted many hope­ful ac­tors.

“When we put the cast to­gether, we had some es­tab­lished names, such as Ken­neth Bran­nagh, Tom Hardy and Cil­lian Mur­phy. 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,” said Nolan, adding, “So he au­di­tioned. I au­di­tioned lit­er­ally thou­sands of young men. And he had it,” said Nolan.
