Apart from making not one but two huge announcements about his solo music career, it seems that people are as excited for Harry Styles as he is set to take part in his feature film debut. However, given that the singer-turned-actor doesn't have any acting background, critically acclaimed director Christopher Nolan has finally spoken in defense of Harry disclosing why he cast the singer in the first place. Nolan, who has been more popular for being the director of "The Dark Knight" and "Inception" has explained that although Styles has not initially been considered, the entire production crew seemed really wanted young unknowns.

According to Vogue, the director continues to explain that despite not having an acting background, "unknown" isn't the word that they'd choose to describe the 23-year-old. In one of his statements, Nolan said that Styles had actually never done anything as an actor before, so perhaps, that was his driving force when he auditioned. The director reveals that he even called for an audition to literally thousands of young men, but only Harry made the cut.
Furthermore, as per The Huffington Post, "Dunkirk" is composed of an all-star cast, and yet Styles has emerged as one of the most talked-about actors in the film. As a matter of fact, a moment in the trailer in which Styles is trapped underwater has apparently gone viral on Twitter last year.
However, it was also revealed that the singer has to chop off his famously long locks before filming "Dunkirk." So, when asked how the singer might have felt about it, Nolan was quick to dismiss the reporter saying that he doesn't want to get into details. Ultimately, it was revealed in the latter part that the singer donated his hair to the Little Princess Trust, a charity that makes wigs out of real hair for children experiencing hair loss due to cancer treatment.
