By now, fans have witnessed Harry Styles in the fight of his life during a dramatic underwater scene in one of the official “Dunkirk” trailers. What fans might not have known is that no one bothered to ask Harry how well he could swim before he landed the part. In a new interview with USA Today, Harry reveals just how terrifying that particular scene was to film.

Harry Styles attended the London premiere of “Dunkirk” on Thursday and got a royal surprise when Prince Harry came to the event. Harry, who plays ‘Alex’ in the war film, revealed that he feels spoiled for working on his first film with Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy and Chris Nolan.
Being his first foray onto the big screen, Harry received support from his One Direction bandmates. Louis Tomlinson took a break from promoting his upcoming single to attend the premiere to the pure excitement of Directioners and Larry shippers everywhere. Liam Payne also showed more support for Harry’s movie than he did his music with a tweet congratulating the singer.

Harry 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.

Despite 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.”
