That’s why Harry Styles turned down a role in The Little Mermaid | celebrities

celebritiesDisney’s live-action remakes are one block after another. Many actors dream of a role in popular films. But none of that is with Harry Styles (29). The British musician deliberately turned down the role of Prince Eric in The Little Mermaid. But according to director Rob Marshall, 62, he had good reason for it.

Rumors have circulated for a while, but now The Little Mermaid director Rob Marshall himself has revealed that he has been dating Harry Styles. The director wanted the Briton to play Prince Eric, the love interest of Ariel (performed by Halle Bailey) in The Little Mermaid. The idea was widely supported by fans at the time. So Styles has several conversations with Marshall. “We’ve seen Harry a few times. He was so sweet. He’s a really cool guy.”

But even after several talks, the director could not convince the pop star. Styles turned down the role in The Little Mermaid. But according to Marshall, the “As It Was” singer had a good reason for that. “A lot of young musicians, like Harry, are trying to make their way as an actor. When they jump in, they don’t want to be seen as singers. That’s why Harry didn’t want to play in a musical.” “Harry was really looking for something that wasn’t in the musical genre. He wanted to get completely out of his comfort zone.” In addition, the British artist also prefers movies with a dark side. “He wanted to act in it,” explains the director, who was a little disappointed at the time. “I would have loved it if he had taken on the role of Eric. But in the end everything happens for a reason. I’m happy with how the cast turns out. We have two new guys in the movie.” The role of Prince Eric was eventually played by Jona Hauer King.

In 2017, Styles made his acting debut in Christopher Nolan’s film Dunkirk. He received many positive comments for his role in the movie. Last year, the Brit appeared in Don’t Worry Darling, a psychological thriller directed by his ex-girlfriend, Olivia Wilde. In addition, he also appeared in My Policeman, a drama film by Michael Grandage.
