For a while rumors circulated that Harry Styles (25) would play Prince Erik in the live action remake of ‘The Little Mermaid’. The young Briton refused the role, however. In an interview with The Face, he explains why. 

The fact that Harry Styles was going to play Prince Erik was highly appreciated by fans. The rumors circulated for a while until the former band member of One Direction debunked them themselves. “It’s been talked about,” he admits in The Face. “But I want to release music and focus on it for a while. But everyone involved was great, so I think it’s going to be very good. I will look at it with pleasure, I am sure. ”

Harry has now finished his second album. How it will sound is still a big secret, but his good friend, Stevie Nicks (Fleetwood Mac), said: “It is very different from what One Direction has ever made. It is pure Harry, as he himself would say. He has made a completely different album and it is spectacular. “Liam Gallagher also heard a few songs and said:” You know what: they are very good! A bit like Bon Iver. Is that his name? “

So for the moment Harry will not be acting anymore. In 2017 he made his acting debut in ‘Dunkirk’, a film by Christopher Nolan. He received a lot of positive comments on that, and he himself thought it was a great experience. “Why do I want to act? It’s so different from making music, “he says in The Face. “They are almost the opposite. With music you try to invest as much of yourself as possible, when you act you try to disappear completely into whoever you are. ”
