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.
