The fact that Harry Styles is known all over the World due to One Direction and his solo career had NOTHING to do with him landing his role in the upcoming movie "Dunkirk". At least that's what director Christopher Nolan is saying. Nolan says he had no idea how famous Harry actually was when he cast him for the role.
"I don't think I was that aware really of how famous Harry was" Nolan shared. "I mean, my daughter had talked about him. My kids talked about him, but I wasn't really that aware of it. So the truth is, I cast Harry because he fit the part wonderfully and truly earned a seat at the table." is what Nolan had to say.
Oh, and Harry's co-star Mark Rylance also had no idea about Harry's popularity either until his 11 year old niece filled him in.
So maybe Harry's not as famous as we all thought?
