Harry Styles is still working hard in Hollywood, with brand new photos from upcoming LGBTQ+ drama My Policeman revealing the singer-turned-actor in character.

Just a few months after Olivia Wilde shared a photo of Harry on the set of his other upcoming film Don't Worry Darling, the One Direction star has been photographed filming the hotly-anticipated adaptation of Bethan Roberts' novel.

Harry – who will play the lead alongside The Crown's Emma Corrin – can be seen in an old-school police officer's uniform, bringing the character of Tom to life for the first time.

Produced by The CW stalwart Greg Berlanti, along with Robbie Rogers and Sarah Schechter, My Policeman will see Harry and Emma as Tom and Marion, a couple whose lives are turned upside down by a visit from a mystery guest.

Taking inspiration from Roberts' novel set in 1950s Brighton, the big-screen version will pick up in the late '90s, when the arrival of an elderly man into Tom and Marion's home triggers the exploration of "seismic events from 40 years previous".

Tom and Marion's guest is soon revealed as Patrick, Tom's former lover from a time when same-sex relationships between men were illegal.

Our first glimpse at Harry on the set of My Policeman comes after Don't Worry Darling director Olivia Wilde offered her fulsome praise of the actor.

Sharing a behind-the-scenes pic of him in action earlier this year, Olivia thanked Styles for embracing a "supporting role in [a] female-led film".

"Not only did he relish the opportunity to allow for the brilliant @florencepugh to hold [centre] stage as our 'Alice', but he infused every scene with a nuanced sense of humanity," she wrote.

"He didn't have to join our circus, but he jumped on board with humility and grace, and blew us away every day with his talent, warmth, and ability to drive backwards."

My Policeman, based on the book by Bethan Roberts, is filming now.
