Christopher Nolan had no idea of how famous Harry Styles is

ICONINSIDER — Christopher Nolan had no idea how famous Harry Styles was when he cast him in ‘Dunkirk’.
The 46-year-old director knew Harry was in boyband One Direction when he auditioned for a part in the upcoming movie but admitted he was unaware of exactly how big of a star Harry is before he started working with him.
He said: “I don’t think I was that aware really of how famous Harry was. 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.”
And Harry’s Oscar winning co-star Mark Rylance revealed working with the ‘Sign of the Times’ singer impressed his niece more than anything else in his career to date.
He said: “She was just more excited than anything I’ve ever done because I was going to be acting with Harry Styles. I went up in her estimation. I won the Harry!”
Harry, 23, revealed his One Direction bandmates – Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson – are excited about his big screen debut.
He said: “They are big fans of Chris, too, and I think they’re excited to see it.”
But he admitted he was shocked by the large-scale production during his early days on set.
He explained: “I’d say seeing the scale of the production was very overwhelming. I think whatever you imagine kind of a giant film set to be like, this was very ambitious even by those standards. You know the boats and the planes and the volume of bodies … it was pretty amazing.”
