The British actor's star has been rising for some time now, but with Ruben Östlund’s Palme D’Or winning film Triangle of Sadness he's about to go interstellar

Harris Dickinson has a mullet.


I am sitting with the British actor, who co-stars in Ruben Östlund’s Palme D’Or winning film Triangle of Sadness, at La Plage du Martinez in Cannes, remarking on the trendy haircut. He tells me that it’s for a role in a new FX series called Retreat, in which he stars opposite Emma Corin.

“I’m playing a street artist, so this is my hair for the next four months,” he says. “At the start of the job I was like, ‘Great, this is a nice change. I’m into this’. It helps you lean into the character – something different than what you have. It’s an access into it. But I keep catching myself in the mirror like, ‘Oh, this is not what I imagined’.”
