No one thought it was possible, but the fan-fave friendship between Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles just got even cuter than it was before. Now that Hazza has broken into the acting industry with his debut film Dunkirk, his One Direction mate for life hopes to follow in his footsteps and give acting a whirl as well.
It all started when Louis opened up about what it was like waking up on the morning after 1D’s last performance together, where they sang “History” on The X Factor before going on an extended hiatus.
“It was a very emotional time. It was a really weird feeling, because [the break] is by no means definitive, so it leaves you in a place where you’re like, ‘OK, what comes next?'” Louis opened up to BBC News.
So what did come next? Music, obvs. However, there were some acting gigs that were offered up to Louis.
The singer continued, “There were a few TV opportunities. But unless you are someone like Harry – who is immensely talented in so many different areas – I think it’s really important to stay in your lane and do what you do well.”
But even though his pal Harry has proven he’s got serious acting chops in Dunkirk, don’t expect to see Louis in any television shows or movies soon. Why? Well, he wants to fully nail down the whole solo music thing first.
“Having said that, the idea of acting sounds quite exciting to me,” Louis added. “But I’d rather get the music 100% right, rather than 90% right while trying to dip my toe in something else.”
If that’s the only thing holding him back, Louis’ acting debut honestly can’t be too far into the future â because tbh, we think his music ~is~ at 100%. Come on, anyone who’s heard “Back to You” knows it’s the ultimate jam.
