‘He’ll be terrific’: Cillian Murphy sings the praises of Dunkirk co-star Harry Styles.

Speaking to the Radio Times, the 40 year-old revealed that his Dunkirk co-star is ‘terrific’ in the new production, which will prove his ability.

'Harry Styles is great,’ he enthuses of the One Direction frontman who makes his break for boyband freedom with his first real acting gig.

'I had very few scenes with Harry but we got to hang out and I’ve got to say he’s a great, great kid, and really, really funny. Above all, Chris Nolan [the director] knows talent and would have cast Harry for a reason.’

‘There’s a long history of musicians moving over into acting and I come from that world myself, so I’m sure he’ll be terrific in the role. I trust Chris implicitly in that.’

He’s also revealed that the project’s production values will make it the perfect choice for Harry’s debut. ‘With the way Chris is shooting, all on IMAX 65mm cameras and in the real locations, it should be pretty powerful.’

Cillian talks Nazi hunters, Peaky Blinders and… Harry Styles? In the Sept 3 issue of RadioTimes. (Do the right click thing to read full size). New stuff:

Dunkirk: ” He won’t share anything about the plot, not even his character’s army rank. “The reason why Chris has always been so ‘secretive’ about his scripts is that it just ruins the experience. And I agree with him. The word ‘spoiler’ says it all. The anticipation is amazing, so let’s just wait and see, and all will be revealed. With the way Chris is shooting, all on IMAX 65mm cameras and in the real locations, it should be pretty powerful.

What’s next: Right now he’s taking some time off. He was interviewed in Dublin just before heading to Greece for a family holiday. After promoting Anthropoid he’ll start promoting another film, Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire, which closes this autumn’s London Film Festival. Then next year he’ll be shooting S4 of Peaky Blinders.
