Five years ago, Harry Styles had his first debut on the big screen in the critically-acclaimed movie, Dunkirk. Even though the character did not appear for the first 30 minutes, his role became a jumpstart towards a much more successful career.

The British singer has ventured across multiple directions. Whether it be music, fashion, or acting – he’s tried it all. At the age of 28, Harry Styles‘ popularity has skyrocketed, allowing him to expand his curriculum in other artistic ways.

With a special message of reassuring anyone they can make a difference in the world, no matter the status of the person, Dunkirk portrays the outcome of hundreds of people pulling together for the love of their country and soldiers.

Set during World War II, Styles apparently was perfect for the movie.

Don’t worry fans, Harry is well and alive in the film.

Two months after releasing his first solo album after splitting up from One Direction, Harry Styles made his debut as an actor on the big screen. Though he always had been passionate about music, he grew an interest in the acting world.

In 2016, after 68 days in the filming process, Dunkirk completed its filming. Ten months later, the 1940s-set film was released in cinemas. This became Harry Style’s first major role at the age of 23.

In sharing the reason why the singer was selected for such a character, director Christopher Nolan made it very clear. The singer simply had an “old fashioned face”. According to Nzherald, the actor seemed to be the type “you believe he could have been alive in that period”.

Nolan also described the role of Harry as “very un-glamorous”. He then detailed the singer as a perfect fit to play the character of Alex.

The Night Changes from one day to another, and that’s exactly what happened to the well-beloved singer. Although fans knew him for being the pretty-talented boy with the curly locks from One Direction, the singer always had a passion for acting.

As per the reason he had auditioned for the role, he told Vanity Fair he simply just “wanted to be involved”. Yes, Harry, you’re hired. The then 23-year-old superstar reiterated the plot had drawn his attention. Pure British history, of course.

“I started acting when I was younger in school. I’ve always liked it, and have always been a massive fan of movies,” Harry shared.

Throughout the past couple of years, Harry has been rocking his celebrity status with a lot of Styles (pun intended). The pop star has sold more than 15 million equivalent album sales ever since he started his solo journey after announcing the indefinite hiatus from One Direction.

Harry has gone from being a young man to a worldwide icon. This is reflected in the many projects the Briton has participated in. Even though the 28-year-old has been more focused on his singing career and performing all around the world, Harry jumpstarted his acting career in 2021.

He even featured in an American superhero saga Marvel film, as a cameo in Eternals. The actor is now in the works of completing his performance as a lead role. Don’t Worry Darling, starring his current girlfriend Olivia Wilde, My Policeman is set to be released in 2022.
