It’s really the little things that stick out to you, doesn’t it? At least for Dunkirk‘s Fionn Whitehead it is.

The young actor remembers the first time that he met Harry Styles during auditions and what he did for him just stuck with him.

“The final audition I did, I was screen testing with Harry and another actor and I think needed a highlighter or something [to highlight lines in the script] and I went, ‘I could really use a highlighter’,” Fionn recalled to People. “And Harry said, ‘Need a highlighter?’ and just disappeared upstairs and got me a highlighter, which was very nice of him. Such a nice young man.”

We mean, how cute is that?!

Fionn also revealed that Harry was the one star on set who could literally fall asleep anywhere, and at any time.

“I think we both managed to find a way to fall asleep on demand,” he says. “So, on set if there was a five minute break, we just turn over and zzz. I think you’re the best at it, actually. I like to think I’m pretty good, but I think you’re the best at falling asleep.”

And Harry admits that he is pretty good at it — especially when they were on the ships.

“I definitely fell asleep while floating a couple times. It was nice, refreshing.”

Harry Styles Opens Up About Filming Explosive Beach Scenes in 'Dunkirk' (Video)

Harry Styles Opens Up About Filming Explosive Beach Scenes in 'Dunkirk' (Video)

Harry Styles and Fionn Whitehead open up about their new film together, Dunkirk, in a roundtable event.

The two young actors joined Tom Glynn Carney and Jack Lowden in discussing the film, the history and what was really going through their minds while they were shooting.

“It’s not a ‘pretend there’s an explosion going off over here’; it’s all going on,” Harry remembered about the beach scenes. “I think that just means you get natural reactions to stuff.”

Dunkirk centers on hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops are surrounded by enemy forces. Trapped on the beach with their backs to the sea they face an impossible situation as the enemy closes in.

The film will be out at the end of the month on July 21st.

Harry Styles' 'Dunkirk' Co-Stars Point Out Something Big About The Movie

Harry Styles' 'Dunkirk' Co-Stars Point Out Something Big About The Movie

Harry Styles will make his big screen debut in Dunkirk this month, and that’s a huge thing for anyone.

However, the singer and actor’s co-stars don’t want you to miss what the movie is actually about.

“He’s great, he’s a good actor and a lovely guy,” co-star Fionn Whitehead told DigitalSpy in a new interview. “I think the hysteria – [perhaps] it should have been expected when you take a figure like that and give him a short back and sides and put him in a uniform.”

Fionn and other cast members are just a little annoyed that Harry is getting all the attention, when the movie is more than just about his big screen debut.

It’s about a World War II event that was a miracle — which is obvious as the battle’s name known as “The Miracle of Dunkirk”.

“The meaning has got lost somewhere along the way and people have stopped realising there’s an amazing cast – including Harry – but there’s, you know, the creme de la creme of actors,” Fionn added. “I think the focus should not be Harry Styles doing a movie, it should be on the piece in general or his ability to act. And he’s great.”

Dunkirk is also Fionn‘s first film role as well.
