Harry Styles

Powered by imdb

Harry Edward Styles was born on February 1st 1994 in Redditch, Worcestershire (England). He's the son of Anne Twist (née Selley) and Desmond "Des" Styles. During his first years, his family lived in Holmes Chapel, Cheshire, but when his parents divorced in 2001, he, his mother, and his older sister Gemma moved to Northwich, though he maintained a good relationship with his father. When Harry's mother met his now stepfather, Robin Twist, they moved back to Holmes Chapel, where Harry resided until auditioning for the British talent show The X Factor (2004) in 2010. He gave an A Capella rendition of Stevie Wonder's "Isn't She Lovely" and was sent through to the next round with two yes's from Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole and a no from Louis Walsh. Though he couldn't make it through the Bootcamp stage and was eliminated, Simon Cowell believed that Harry was too good to be sent home and decided to put him, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, and Louis Tomlinson (also Bootcamp rejects) in a group. Harry chose the name "One Direction" for this new group, and as such they performed "Torn" by Natalie Imbruglia at the Judges' Houses stage in Spain. One Direction then advanced through the Live Shows stage and made it into the finals, where they came in third place. Despite the fact that a only the winner and runner-up of the show were supposed to get a record deal, Simon offered to sign the band to his label "Syco Music" the morning after the final show. In 2011, One Direction put out their first album, "Up All Night", which hit the top position in the charts in Australia, United Kingdom, and the United States. One Direction has since released four equally successful albums and toured the world three times in sold out venues. They're the fifteenth top-grossing act in history according to Billboard and have broken the record previously set by The Beatles of #1 albums by a British act in America according to Guinness. In late 2015, after releasing their fifth studio album, "Made in the AM", One Direction decided to take a break from their relentless career as a band. In 2016, Harry got his first acting role in Christopher Nolan's film Dunkirk, playing a British Expeditionary Force soldier called Alex. The film opened in most major markets on July 21st and has been unanimously acclaimed by critics all over the world, with Harry's being lauded as one of the standout performances of the ensemble cast. On April 7 2017, Harry released his first solo work, "Sign of the Times", which reached the top of the charts all over the world and has since sold over 1 million copies in America and over 2 million copies worldwide. On May 12 2017, Harry released his first solo album, "Harry Styles". With almost 1 million copies sold worldwide, Harry's album is one of the best sold this year and critics everywhere have been praising his refreshing soft rock sound, impeccable production, and remarkable vocals. "Harry Styles Live On Tour" his first solo tour, has sold out in its first leg (2017) and is nearly sold out in its second one (2018), including two sold out shows in Madison Square Garden (New York) and two sold out shows in The Forum (Los Angeles).  See full bio on IMDb »
