Harry Styles dons full uniform to play gay cop on set of new film My Policeman
The first photos of Harry Styles in My Policeman prompted reports of rampant swooning, sweaty palms and skipped heartbeats.
Styles is playing in one of the lead roles for the queer flick by Amazon Studios, based on a 2012 novel of the same name by Bethan Roberts.
Set in Brighton in 1957, the movie follows cop Tom Burgess (Styles) falling for David Dawson’s Patrick Hazelwood, a museum curator.
But an embittered love triangle forms as Burgess marries Marion, a school teacher who will be played by Emma Corrin. When she discovers her husband is having an affair, she mounts a bid to have him arrested – homosexuality being still illegal at the time.
In one of the first sightings of Harry Styles in his My Policeman role, he was spotted in full 1950s-style police uniform while filming a scene with his on-screen love interest, Dawson, in Brighton.
Styles was also spied earlier this week sharing a kiss with Corrin while filming in Worthing, the Metro.co.uk reported.
On both occasions, the “Watermelon Sugar” hitmaker’s aggressively thirsty fanbase went into overdrive.

That police hat looks absolutely hilarious yet somehow he pulls it off like the coolest and hottest thing ever. Harry styles really is proof god has favourites. It’s unreal. And I’m so here for it. There is nothing hat man can’t pull off. The power he holds.

Sources told The Sun that with the scenes, “not much is going to be left to the imagination”.
“Harry is throwing himself into this new role and is really excited about the challenge, even though it’s a daunting task,” they claimed.
The insider added that Styles “always wants to do things that people wouldn’t expect” and that his upcoming queer role will challenge people’s perceptions of him.
