Nolan wasn’t aware of Harry’s popularity before casting him

On 7th July 2017, Nolan said,

“I don’t think I was that aware really of how famous Harry was. I mean, my daughter had talked about him. My kids talked about him, but I wasn’t really that aware of it. So the truth is, I cast Harry because he fit the part wonderfully and truly earned a seat at the table.”
