During filming of Eternals, director Chloe Zhao thought it would be a good idea for some of the cast to see Harry Styles in his musical day job.
Lia McHugh, who plays Sprite in the movie, revealed in a recent interview that the cast was able to catch Styles in London thanks to the director arranging for them to see him in concert. Zhao apparently approached the cast to ask if they wanted to go with her to the event, to which McHugh recalled she replied, “Is that even a question?” The actress told Screen Rant:
“I think she kept [Styles’ casting] in her back pocket a little bit until it was time for him to come shoot, and then she told us. And one day she was like, “You wouldn’t want to go to a Harry Styles concert with me, would you?” And I was like, “Is that even a question?!” It’s funny. He had a smaller, private one in London and we got special seats up in a lounge. A few of the Eternals went and it was great.”
Harry Styles Will Have A Bigger Part To Play In the Future of The MCU
Although he was only on screen for a couple of minutes, Harry Styles made an impact on the film’s internet mentions, with word spreading fast of the singer’s cameo appearance thanks to a leak from the premiere. While some were quick to jump on the “oh, no” bandwagon at the thought of a manufactured pop star joining the MCU, there were plenty who were happy to see his arrival and even more excited about where his character will go next.
