Don’t Worry Darling: Harry Styles stars in movie trailer
Harry Styles has confused his doting fans for his strange accent following a clip from his upcoming film Don’t Worry Darling.
The star is best known for his music career and is currently in the midst of his Love On Tour world tour, where he is performing at Madison Square Garden on 12 nights over the next month. Harry may be known for his music, but the 28-year-old has also turned his hand to acting following his cameo in Christopher Nolan’s 2017 blockbuster film Dunkirk.
His performance in Dunkirk garnered plenty of plaudits and as a result, has two more movies set for release before the year is out which could amplify his ability as an established actor.

The next film for release is psychological thriller Don’t Worry Darling, where Harry plays main character Jack Chambers alongside Academy Award-nominated actress Florence Pugh who portrays Jack’s wife Alice.
Harry replaced former Even Stevens star Shia LaBeouf as the main lead and that decision brought some attention when the film’s director Olivia Wilde confirmed her relationship with the former One Direction star after meeting on set. Don’t Worry Darling will premiere at the Venice Film Festival on September 5, with the film set to be in cinemas from September 23 in the UK.
Ahead of its release, Rolling Stone magazine’s official Instagram account shared an exclusive 18-second clip of the film where the on-screen couple were arguing but it was Harry’s accent which baffled fans. During the scene, Jack says to Alice: “Not everyone gets this opportunity, and if you keep talking like this you’re going to put it all at risk.”
She replies: “You’re worried about a demotion?That’s what you’re worried about?” In character, Harry responds: “Our life, Alice, our life together. This, we could lose this.”
Harry’s British accent is apparent throughout the clip but during some passages he drifts into an American twang, which got followers questioning which accent he was meant to have. One person commented: “So is he supposed to be British.”

Another replied: “Bro is he using a British accent or not” followed by two crying emojis. A third person said: “So is he English in this? Because he sounds English in this.” A fourth user commented: “THE BRITISH STILL THERE” followed by a crying emoji.
Harry is also the main lead in British period film My Policeman, based on the Bethan Roberts novel of the same name, which sees his character Tom Burgess have a same-sex affair with a museum curator despite homosexuality being illegal in 1950s Britain.
