“I had no plans on ever being in the public eye or being an actor or any kind of celebrity. I was just, you know, having fun, making videos as a little kid and putting them on the internet. And one thing led to another, and I kinda just hopped into the acting business.”
Well here’s a bit of seemingly good news! There’s been a change in Rep for Louis over at CAA. He is now being repped by Robert Mickelson. Robert reps a LOT of singer/actors like Joe Jonas, Lennon and Maisey Stella from Nashville, Chord Overstreet from Glee, along with other musicians such as Marilyn Manson, Pete Wentz, and LunchMoney Lewis among others.
This is actually pretty exciting I think! The first sign of Harry venturing into the world of acting was him getting his own rep separate from the band. Here’s to hoping good things come out of this! Whatever happens, it heavily implies that he’s not just waiting around, not working like was implied on AGT. He’s actively out there going for things!

this new law has the potential and very real possibility of discriminating against groups like:
the lgbtqiap+ community. this has been a specific focus in the arguments against this bill, and there have even been several groups and members of the lgbt+ community outwardlyprotesting against this bill
people of color
muslim + jewish people (specifically people in these two religions that outwardly express their religion, like hijabis)
pretty much anyone who is not a cis-presenting straight christian white-passing person, since this state is teetering on the edge of the bible belt
george takei has written commentary on this, and gen con (the only big convention held annually in indianapolis, and a giant profit for the state in general) is threatening to relocate. other than that, though, ive seen slim to none about this bill on the internet
please reblog this and spread the word. this could be incredibly harmful to the lgbt+ community and all other minorities in the state of indiana
George F. Johnson was an entrepreneur who pioneered 40 hour workweeks. He paid industry-leading wages, built low-cost parks, pools, and medical facilities for his 10,000 employees, sold homes to workers at a loss, and his company was consistently profitable. Source
Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy announced on Monday plans to sign an executive order barring state-funded travel to Indiana, as a direct response to Indiana Gov. Mike Pence’s quiet enactment of an LGBT discrimination law last week. Malloy’s move will make Connecticut the first state to officially boycott Indiana over the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which could allow business owners to refuse service to LGBT customers in the name of “religious freedom.”
