Harry Styles has tried his hand in acting for the first time in the upcoming film Dunkirk, and one of the One Direction band member's new co-stars, Mark Rylance, was full of praise for Harry's professionalism and wit on set.

Chatting to the Evening Standard, Mark said: "I didn't know anything about him really other than my 12-year-old niece played me a music video. She adores him. There are girls all over the place trying to get to him - he is one handsome fella with an incredible smile and eyes.

"What's really surprised me is he's really witty, really funny - he really makes me laugh. He's been ever so brave, not making any fuss."

Harry has been spotted on set for the 2017 war film, which is being directed by Christopher Nolan and will star Tom Hardy and Kenneth Branaugh, and casting director John Papsidera opened up about casting the 22-year-old, saying: "Harry was absolutely right for the role. As an actor he is unknown, but his readings made him an obvious choice. We thought he was fresh and interesting and he won the role."

Mark continued to say: "He seems remarkable ... one of those people - Sean Penn has it too - a kind of panache. I look at them and think, 'How did you get that? How do you get so that life is easy?' But he has got a lovely, lovely character. It's a gift."
