It only made it to number four in the U.S., but Harry’s self-titled debut album was top of the charts in the U.S., the U.K. and at least a dozen other countries.

Given his latest achievement with a number-one film, Harry just might be the sign of the times himself.

Harry Styles Reveals How Much Thought Went Into His Major “Dunkirk” Hair Style Change

Harry Styles Reveals How Much Thought Went Into His Major Dunkirk Hair Style Change Almost None featureHarry Styles is hitting the trail for the “Dunkirk” press campaign. The singer may have a relatively small role in the World War II movie, but his fame is a major boon to the movie’s visibility–even if director Christopher Nolan doesn’t know who he is. In a new interview with Access Hollywood, Harry talked about what went into cutting off his signature long hair for the role.

“When I auditioned for a movie that was set in World War II, I imagined I’d probably have to have a little trim,” Harry said with a smile and a chuckle. “It kind of went without saying and I was so excited to be involved in the movie, I didn’t really think too much.” Harry was highly motivated to get involved with the project, and he explained what drew him to the chance to be on the silver screen.

“I was so excited about this film,” Harry said. “I’m such a massive fan of Chris’s films.” The chance to work with the “Inception” director might’ve drawn Harry into this project, but he’s not ruling out future Hollywood parts even as he prepares for a massive tour.

“I haven’t really thought too much further ahead,” he said when asked if there was a future in movies for him. He did admit, “I loved doing this film.” Harry also joked about the prep work that went into his “Dunkirk” role.

“Dunkirk” Director Christopher Nolan Has No Clue How Famous Harry Styles Is

Dunkirk Director Christopher Nolan Had No Clue How Famous Harry Styles Is featureDespite being part of a cast that includes Tom Hardy, Benedict Cumberbatch, Cillian Murphy and Kenneth Branagh, the Internet seems fairly preoccupied with how much screen time Harry Styles will get in “Dunkirk.” Curiously enough, the film’s director, Christopher Nolan, had no clue just how famous Harry is before the movie was filmed.

“I don’t think I was that aware really of how famous Harry was,” Nolan said in an interview with Billboard on Friday. “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.”

Following a brief appearance in the film’s earlier trailers, Harry has been prominently featured in some of the latest teasers leading up to the film’s release. Clearly, Nolan got the message.

Dunkirk arrives in theaters on July 21.
